    Driving in the Netherlands

    When you think of the Netherlands thoughts of cheese, windmills, painters and those cute wooden shoes may come to mind. It is a small but intriguing country and the perfect country to discover in a car hire. Explore the very flat countryside or get lost in one of the many colourful tulip fields. Amsterdam is a picturesque and lively city, full of old European charm, a bustling night-life and its many canals which criss-cross the city. Whether you want to party, relax or soak in some culture and history, this city offers plenty for everyone.Economy Car Hire

    Home to the Queen of Holland, and the site of many important buildings and courthouses, The Hague is equally popular with locals as well as foreigners, as a place to explore well preserved medieval buildings and soak up a culture of art and history. Many squares dot the city and are home to restaurants and clubs, a perfect mix of history and nightlife. The city of Rotterdam is built around the largest harbour in the world and has grown to a multicultural city and a centre for industry, trade, design and architecture.

    Country Essentials

    In the Netherlands, cars travel on the right side of the road and overtake on the left. Speed limits vary from 50km per hour in the city to 130km per hour on freeways and motorways. Children aged 12 and under must have a suitable restraint system if they are travelling in the front seat. Child seats are also mandatory for children weighing up to 19 kilos and those below 1.35m in height. For additional information on driving in the Netherlands, we encourage our clients to refer to our specialised Netherlands Driving Information page.

    In the Netherlands Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection are included in our rates. The CDW and Theft Protection reduce the liability of the driver to a capped amount. Fire insurance is also included in your car hire. Super CDW is usually offered locally to reduce the deductible of your auto hire to as low as zero.

A young driver surcharge may apply to those ages 25 and younger. Some suppliers may also have a maximum age limit, so this must be checked at the time of booking.

    Tolls and Freeways

You must also inform the local supplier when you pick-up your car hire. As a general rule, travel across borders is permitted between west and central European nations however each provider has slightly different rules. Be sure to plan your driving route in advance to check if you will leave the Netherlands. Even crossing the border for a short on route to another Dutch city could cause problems. Fees may also be payable to the supplier, the main reason for this is to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area you are travelling to, and locally at border crossings.
