It's 533 miles between Albuquerque to Mexicali. On a typical day, it might take between 9h 12min and 9h 39min from Albuquerque to Mexicali under normal conditions. If traffic is heavy, it could take around 10h 7min and costs will only go up due to traffic and congestion to drive to Mexicali by car. In these situations, we would highly recommend public transit if available.
We estimate driving cost by using a 20 mpg fuel economy, fuel costing $2.70 per US gallon, the one-way cost of the drive, excluding tolls, may be about $71.
Book as soon as you can, as there may be limited availability.
For these medium length trips, it's important to book your tickets as soon as possible. While there are bus, flight or by car transportation options available, the sooner to book the better. While prices for buses or trains might not fluctuate as much as flights, their availability certainly will. It's recommended to book these flights at least 2 weeks away, but even more if you are able.
