  • There are several advantages to renting cheap car rentals in Alamosa. Firstly, the city is surrounded by spectacular mountain ranges, such as the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the San Juan Mountains, which are perfect for scenic drives and outdoor activities. Having Alamosa car rentals allows for easy access to these beautiful areas that are not easily accessible by public transportation.

Most of the tourist attractions are spread out across the city, and renting a car gives you the freedom to explore these places at your own pace.
  • Alamosa Regional Airport (ALS) is about 3 miles from the center at Alamosa. The car rental offices are located outside the terminal building near the parking lot, which is just a walkable distance away. Pueblo Memorial Airport (PUB) is located in Pueblo and is about 125 miles from Alamosa. The car rental offices are located in the main terminal building near baggage claim and it's a short walk from the airport terminal to the rental car offices. There are four rental car companies at PUB, including Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • You can expect driving cheap car rentals in Alamosa to be generally quite easy and relaxed, with a slower pace of life compared to larger cities. You should be aware of pedestrians and cyclists, as they are common in the area. It's important to yield to pedestrians at crosswalks and to leave a safe distance between your vehicle and cyclists.

  • Alamosa, Colorado is generally a small and relatively quiet city with minimal traffic. Rush hour traffic is not typically a major concern, as there are no major highways passing through the area. However, during peak tourist season in the summer months, there may be slightly increased traffic on the city's main roads. Winter driving in Alamosa can also be challenging due to snowfall and icy roads, especially in the mountainous areas surrounding the city. Drivers should be prepared for changing weather conditions and should have appropriate tires and equipment for winter driving.

Cons:

Abrupt manner of Customer Service Rep when turning in the car; not friendly at all. I left my wallet in the small airport and he didn't bother to call me that evening - even though he had all my contact information, and on a more personal note he knew exactly who I was because he knows my husband; Alamosa is a small town, everyone knows everyone. As a result, I didn't realize I didn't have the wallet until I was 2 hours out of town the next morning, driving to another state. I had to turn around and go back to Alamosa with three dogs in the car, adding a significant amount of time to my trip and discomfort to my animals. It may sound like a small matter, but the fact was that he could have very well made an effort to be human and try to get my wallet back to me - I would have gone to pick it up if I had known I'd left it, and I would have met him someplace else if that was necessary. His complete disregard of my situation was uncalled for and very unprofessional; a little bit of kindness goes a long way in this world, but apparently that's not important to Anthony at the Alamosa Hertz office.
