KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hobbs

  • Renting a car from one of the car rentals in Hobbs is a wise move. A rental car will afford you the freedom to move from one fun destination to another comfortably, privately, and directly, whenever you want to. It’ll also give you the chance to check out attractions in towns neighboring Hobbs, notably Lovington, Odessa, Lubbock, Carlsbad, Pecos, and Roswell. Additionally, with a rental car, you’ll be able to keep within your planned budget. If you choose to use taxis to get around, this might not be possible, due to unpredictable cumulating costs.
  • Flights to Hobbs land at Hobbs Lea County Airport (HOB). If you want to rent a car after landing at this airport, the Hobbs car rentals you can rent from include Enterprise and National. Although they’re not present on-site, these companies offer pick-up services from HOB to their off-site locations. Since the demand for rental cars from these agencies is always high, book a rental car in advance to make sure you get what you want.
  • Like other cities in New Mexico, Hobbs boasts well-maintained roads with proper markings, signage, and lighting. Additionally, the majority of drivers in Hobbs follow the road rules. Nevertheless, you should still practice safe driving habits and always be on high alert when you’re driving in this community. Always maintain a safe distance from other cars, since some drivers ignore the laws when given the chance. You should also be mindful of pedestrians, given that some will cross the road without considering oncoming traffic.
  • Traffic in Hobbs is not extreme. However, like other towns with relatively significant populations, some roads experience slow-moving traffic when people commute to and from work. In this city, you can expect traffic on roads leading into the downtown area between 7 am and 9 am. On roads going away from the city, traffic is normally heavy between 5 pm and 7 pm. If you intend to drive the rental car you acquire from one of the car rentals in Hobbs during these rush-hour periods, be sure to have a navigation system with you. It’ll assist you in finding the least congested routes to take.
  • Book your car hire in Hobbs at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Hobbs are around 13% cheaper than other car types, on average

I called early in the morning on the day of my travel and booked a car with Enterprise in Hobbs NM. When I found I could get a car one way, I booked my airplane seats. It was a late arrival, so I wanted to be sure we were covered so I got in touch with Enterprise Car Rental Customer Service and the person was very responsive. I was checking to be sure the booking was good. The Agent assured me it was good. I got to Houston and thought I would check with Enterprise in Hobbs. They told me they closed at 5 o'clock. I told the Lady that answered at the airport my problem. I also told me I was told they were open at the airport till 8pm. The Lady promised to resolve the problem and call me back. No return call as promised. Last minute boarding the plane I called now in a panic; someone answered the phone. The man told me they had me covered but I had to take a 12-passenger van. There was ice in Albuquerque and a 12-passenger van in the wind and ice would be a skating rink. Sorry they said nothing they could do. I had to hang-up as the plane was on taxi runway. I arrived in Hobbs NM and the deck at the airport was open and there were 5 people in line renting cars? WHAT? What miss information had I been given! I did get a VX Tiquan which was better than the 12-passenger van. Forgot to mention while I was in Houston, I called first to customer service for Enterprise and an East Indian or Pilipino answered the phone. I explained to him what had happened and asked for help. He told me sorry I can't help you! What says I! He left the phone unattended on his deck for 5 minutes. He finally came back and SAID I CAN'T HELP YOU!! I asked him for his badge number or his ID number and he told me he didn't have to give me anything! That then ended the conversation. I was really furious with that lack of professionalism. I finally did manage to get the VW in Hobbs which was a stroke of luck but the check engine light was on, and the cruise control didn't work. I rented a car there about 3 weeks ago and it was a Volvo exceptionally nice car but it was past its maintenance point. I am rather worried about what will happen to me the next time I think about renting a car from Enterprise again. In the last 3 weeks I have spent about $750 or $800.00 with Enterprise, and I think I was treated incredibly poorly for a customer dealing in good faith. Robert Horne Rio Rancho NM

Pros:

Nothing

Cons:

The customer service at the MAF terminal is abysmal. Literally, non existant. The young lady at the desk was so preoccupied with her report that she had little interest in helping me. If I had the opportunity to recommend a friend to use Alamo, i would first recommend them to walk, or maybe even ride a donkey before I suggested or even hinted at the possibility of using Alamo for a rental car. Suffice it to say, I couldn't be more disappointed in how I was treated as a customer.

Pros:

Place offered a pickup - but then, didn't even know what size it was.

Cons:

I didn't like that I was never even offered roadside assistance and had to pay $70 after waiting two hours for a jump start. I understood the $470 initial fee for out of state rental, but not being charged that entire $470 again for returning it in 31 hours instead of 24. I'll pay a competitor twice as much before dealing with this shiesty company again.
