Amsterdam Mini Guide

Holland’s capital Amsterdam is a city of contrasts and attracts many diverse types of tourism. This fine city of art, architecture and culture with its beautiful canals and cobbled streets also has a seedy underbelly. Flying into Amsterdam you will arrive at one of the world’s most modern airports, Amsterdam Schiphol, which is well connected to destinations across the entire world. You will find the car rental desks on Schiphol Plaza as you come out of arrivals.

Once you have picked up your Rhino hire car you should be aware that driving in the city takes some getting used to because of the massive number of cyclists on the road as well as an intricate tram system which criss-crosses the city. If you are driving to Holland from neighbouring Germany you will take the A1 road, from Belgium in the south you take the A2. Amsterdam is well connected to other Dutch cities such as The Hague and Utrecht by road and the speed limit is 120 kilometres per hour

If you are hiring a car in the Netherlands for the first time we recommend reading our Drive Smart Holland guide to ensure you know the rules of the road and can drive safely in and around Amsterdam.
