Hiring with you

Hiring with you through the net was easy. The attention in amsterdam was medium, left everything really clear that we hired through you and that their cars are from a separate company.

Netherlands Mini Guide

The Netherlands is also commonly referred to as Holland. It is a member of Benulux and was also one of the founding nations of the European Union (EU). The Netherlands has only two borders, Belgium in the south and Germany in the east. The Netherlands are divided into four main regions. The western part of The Netherlands is the most developed, and contains most of the major cities including the nation’s capital Amsterdam.

The northern part of the Netherlands is quite sparsely populated. Most tourists to the northern part of The Netherlands are interested in culture and history. The eastern part of the Netherlands is populated with historic sites of interest and features a wooded landscape, an ideal place for trekking and hiking. The southern part of The Netherlands is completely separated from the rest of the country by three rivers. The rivers Meuse, Waal and Rhine form natural borders to this area.

The main cities in the Netherlands include Amsterdam, the enigmatic capital. Famed for its canals, architecture and vibrant nightlife. Amsterdam has an extensive tram service making travel around this city very easy. Situated between Rotterdam and The Hague is the historic city of Delft. The town has many unspoilt examples of period architecture. One of the oldest cities to be found in the northern part of the Netherlands is Griningen.
