Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Amsterdam?

For car rentals in Amsterdam, you must have a credit card, a short-term visa, and a valid driver’s license. You can drive in the country for up to six months. To get a cheap car rental in Amsterdam, you must be at least 21 years of age, and drivers under 25 might have to pay a young driver’s fee or buy additional insurance. Every agency is different, so it’s a good idea to research your options before your trip.

What are the rules for driving in Amsterdam?

When booking rental cars in Amsterdam, you should take some time to investigate traffic laws, as they may be unfamiliar. Amsterdam car rentals must follow the country’s strict laws regarding reckless driving, and drivers must always wear a seat belt. While driving an economy car rental or other car, cell phone use while driving is illegal. Travelers should understand that the narrow streets are tricky, and you should never stop when you're driving in a roundabout. Drivers in Amsterdam keep on the right side of the road, and the average speed limits are 30-80 km/h (approx. 20-50 mph), depending on the area (i.e., residential, city, or highway). After purchasing car rentals in Amsterdam, drivers must yield to cyclists and emergency vehicles. The Netherlands has strict laws on drinking and driving, meaning anything over a 0.05% BAC (blood alcohol content) level is criminal.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Amsterdam?

For Amsterdam car rentals, it’s smart to research the country, roads, and weather trends, and also factor in the type of activities you plan to do. While the weather is chilly in the winter months, it’s rare for snow to accumulate; however, rain is always a possibility. A smart choice might be a luxury car rental in Amsterdam, like an SUV. Some areas can be rugged and hilly, and if you’re planning on camping, hiking, or boating, then a large sedan or small SUV makes sense. Many rental cars in Amsterdam have roof racks for kayak or bike storage, and plenty of room inside to handle all your gear.

What are the best places to park in Amsterdam?

While you’re sure to find a cheap car rental in Amsterdam, parking is another issue. Parking around the downtown area is often a challenge, and it can get expensive to park. Prices for parking are around 5 euros ($5.50) an hour, and city-center parking is sparse. For car rentals in Amsterdam, your best bet is using the Park and Ride (P+R Amsterdam) service, as prices are usually much lower and you can park all day in most of them. Paying is easy with coins or credit card, or you can use a parking app.
