New Mexico's location in the southwestern region of the US has given the state several cultural influences. Bordered by Arizona, Texas and Colorado, New Mexico offers unique scenery, flamboyant food and rugged mountain ranges. Albuquerque is New Mexico's most bustling of cities with lots to offer tourists. The historic section of Old Town is where you'll see a mixture of Indian and Spanish heritage come to life through architectural feats and cultural traditions. Car hire in New Mexico is a great way to explore the state. Head to the capital Santa Fe, which is easily reached in just under an hour from Albuquerque. Witness 7,000 feet of unspoiled beauty and revel in the Rocky Mountain vistas.
If you're planning on a road trip tour around New Mexico, then from Santa Fe head to Las Cruces. Here you'll find a mixture of art galleries, museums and state parks all nestled in an oasis between two major junctions. Las Cruces' location between the Organ Mountains and the Rio Grande river means you get to see a true example of New Mexico's heritage. Good food is what this destination is all about - head to La Casita Cafe for a true taste of Las Cruces, this authentic Mexican restaurant serves delicious dishes from locally sourced produce.
Before heading off to New Mexico, it's wise to fully familiarise yourself with the rules of the road. Drivers in New Mexico can enjoy extensive roads and highways that are the safest they ever have been. UK drivers should take extra caution on the New Mexico intersections as driving conditions are typically different. You may come across roads without any markings for turning, if this is the case, you should turn from the lane which is the closest to where you want to go, and turn into the lane that's closest to the direction you want to go into.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
