Car hire in Amsterdam
Hiring a car in Amsterdam
There is nowhere quite like Amsterdam, which is why it has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. With canals lined by beautiful houses, over 40 museums, plenty of entertainment and a thriving coffee shop scene, it's easy to see why people return to this city in Holland time and time again.
Amsterdam is filled to the brim with culture and has attractions all over the place so it is a good idea to hire a car in order to see as much as possible. Driving in Amsterdam can be a bit of a challenge, as the city centre is full of narrow streets, pedestrians and cyclists. However, car hire allows you to get around the city and the wider area in an easy way once you get used to it.
What you need to know
There are around a dozen different car hire companies operating in Amsterdam, with the choices available depending on where you are collecting your vehicle from. All the companies are rated as either 'excellent' or 'very good' so you know you're in safe hands no matter which company you choose.
You can make it easier to find the right car to suit your needs by using Holiday Autos' booking tool. This will show you what vehicles are available for the dates of your trip and ensures there are no hidden charges. You'll also benefit from 24/7 support and free cancellation.
Where to pick up your car
One of the easiest options in terms of where to collect your car is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (AMS). You'll find car hire desks at Schiphol Plaza behind Arrivals Three, making it simple to arrange your collection once you have picked up your luggage.
You can also collect your car from Amsterdam Central Train Station, with several car hire companies having offices close by. This will place you right in the heart of Amsterdam and is ideal if you've already arranged a train journey from the airport to the city.
Some companies have offices elsewhere in the city, so it is worth checking to see what option is most convenient for you prior to booking.
