Car Hire Amsterdam Schiphol Airport Helpful Guide

Renting a car from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport provides an excellent opportunity to explore the Netherlands at your own pace. Here's what you need to know:

Renting a Car at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport:

  1. Rental Desks: We are represented at Schiphol Airport via numerous car rental companies operating, such as Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, and Sixt. Their desks are located in Schiphol Plaza, which is easily accessible from the arrivals hall.

  2. Reservation: While you can rent a car upon arrival, it's advisable to make a reservation in advance, especially during peak travel seasons.

  3. Driving License: You'll need a valid driving license. If your license isn't in English, you may also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). Some rental companies may have additional age or driving experience requirements.

  4. Documentation: Ensure you have your booking voucher, passport and credit card (for deposit) handy when picking up your rental car.

  5. Vehicle Inspection: Before driving away, inspect the rental car for any existing damages and ensure they are documented to avoid potential disputes upon return.

Driving in the Netherlands:

  1. Drive on the Right: The Dutch drive on the right side of the road.

  2. Speed Limits: City limits are typically 50 km/h, open roads are 80 km/h, and on motorways, it's generally 100-130 km/h, depending on the section.

  3. Parking: Parking in Amsterdam and other Dutch cities can be expensive and challenging to find. Look for "P+R" (Park and Ride) locations on the outskirts of cities for more affordable parking options and convenient transport links to the city center.

  4. Tolls: Most roads in the Netherlands are toll-free, but there are a few tunnels and bridges where fees apply.

Distances from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport:

  1. Amsterdam City Center: About 18 km away, typically a 25-30 minute drive, depending on traffic.

  2. The Hague (Den Haag): Roughly 45 km, a drive of about 40-50 minutes.

  3. Rotterdam: Approximately 60 km, typically around 1 hour's drive.

  4. Utrecht: Around 45 km, which is roughly a 35-40 minute drive.

  5. Eindhoven: Approximately 125 km, about a 1.5-hour drive.

Remember, while the Netherlands is relatively compact, traffic, especially around cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Utrecht, can be heavy, particularly during rush hours. Plan your journeys accordingly. Overall, the Dutch road network is extensive, well-maintained, and well-signposted, making driving in the Netherlands quite straightforward for visitors.
