Important information about Santa Fe car hire

When visiting the sunny city of Santa Fe, make sure to go to attractions like the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the Loretto Chapel, both of which are easily reached by car. As you’re driving hired cars in Santa Fe, you’ll want to look for a few major roads that connect many neighbourhoods in the city, such as Highway 285. As the area is a popular tourist destination, finding street parking in Santa Fe can be difficult, but there are many paid car parks that you can choose from, particularly in the central area. You don’t need to worry about renting a car, as there are upwards of 30 car hire locations in Santa Fe.

While finding free street parking may be a complicated task, you can easily find paid parking in Santa Fe, as there are many garages to choose from. Santa Fe is a major business and tourism hub, so there are a few traffic hotspots you should be aware of, including Highways 14, 285, and 300. To avoid getting caught in congestion, try not to drive rental cars in Santa Fe on these roads during rush hour, which is normally in the early morning and evening.

Make sure to keep some of the city’s traffic regulations in mind while operating Santa Fe car rentals, as this will help you to stay safe. If your child is under the age of 12, they legally must be in either a child or booster seat. If you would like to pass another vehicle, make sure you do so from the left-hand lane. If there is no speed limit posted, you are required to drive at a safe speed that maintains the flow of traffic. Make sure to always leave a distance that is equivalent to three seconds in between you and the car in front of you. To receive recent information on the city’s traffic laws, contact Santa Fe’s department of motor vehicles.

To rent a car in New Mexico, including a people carrier rental or a cheap car rental, you need to have a valid driving license. Digital licenses are not accepted.
