Search for Car Hire

Amsterdam is famed for its cultural attractions and its nightlife. While the city centre may be better explored on foot or by bike, hiring a car can still be a great idea.

With the freedom and flexibility that comes with having your own car, you can explore the Netherlands at your own pace. The Netherlands is small and very flat – perfect for driving!

World famous sights, as well as some lesser known locations are all within comfortable driving distance.

Car hire companies in Amsterdam’s airport

Amsterdam airport is home to most of the leading rental companies such as:

  • Avis
  • Hertz
  • Budget
  • Alamo
  • Sixt
  • National
  • Thrifty

Most Amsterdam car hire companies offer quotes of €25 or so a day, though you can find cheaper deals by shopping around and booking early!

Three great driving options around Amsterdam

Amsterdam city centre is made up of narrow twisting streets that can make it difficult for locals to drive through let alone tourists. This is evident by the fact that the locals prefer public transportation to driving in the city.

Once you are outside Amsterdam, though, the Netherlands has exceptional series of highways taking you to other major Dutch cities. For example:

  1. Rotterdam
  2. The Hague
  3. Groningen

The highways also lead you to international cities such as

  1. Brussels
  2. Dusseldorf
  3. Luxembourg

Other things to remember out for if you’re hiring a car in Amsterdam

  • Key documentation. This includes driving license (yep, people forget that), DVLA Code, payment cards, and any other important paperwork you’ll need.
  • Compare the competition. Málaga car hire companies are extremely competitive. There are 20 car rental companies based in the city at the time of writing, so make sure you scope out the best deal for you.
  • Book in advance. This will help you find the best deal, with some people paying nearly double by booking on the day of arrival.
  • Check the car for any damage. Last thing you need is to be charged for a scratch or dent that was there before you drove it!
  • Air-con! It’s pretty hot in Málaga in the summer months so make sure you’ve got air-conditioning, or you’ll be in for a pretty unpleasant journey.
