Rental car for Santa Fe, NM?

Jump to last reply

Right now car rentals seem very high for May, but of course I realize they may go down. They do seem much cheaper rented downtown rather than at the airport. But I'm kind of curious anyway. We arrive at SAF at 1:30 in the afternoon on Friday and our flight out is Tuesday at 8 AM. How much is a taxi to and from downtown? Would it make sense to simply rent a car downtown for one or two days and otherwise take transportation to and from the airport? I'm not even sure if we pay for parking at La Fonda, but for at least two of the days I'd assume we wouldn't even be using a car, so it might make sense not to rent a car for the full four days -- just one or two.

Just looking for someone to help me make the decision and at the same time avoid having to return a car so early in the morning on departure.
