Customer questions about Eindhoven car hire

Hello Good morning, I am looking for a small or medium automatic car to be rented for this week end. I do have couple of question I though I will take your help in getting it clarified, 1. I have US Licence, can I rent the car with US Licence 2.Can I take the car out side of Netherlands, like to Germany and Luxembourg 

Hi, a US license is fine, please just bring additional ID with you (passport is great), cross border travel is generally permitted between EU countries so this will be possible but will incur a daily fee to cover the extra insrurance required. This will be payable to the rental agent on arrival.
