Top tips for hiring a car in Amsterdam

  • On your trip to Amsterdam, you want the freedom to explore both the city center and outskirts at your own pace. Discover traditional Dutch wonders like windmills and wooden clogs in Zaanse Schans or head to Bloemendaal aan Zee and Zandvoort aan Zee beach, only a short drive away from Amsterdam.
  • Ready to rent a car on your Amsterdam vacation? If you are flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Airport, whether you are on an international or internal flight, you will need to follow the 'Car hire' signs. You find the hire car desk and service desk in the airport's main foyer, Schiphol Plaza.
  • As a new driver in Amsterdam, you need to watch out for the narrow twisting streets at the center of the city, as well as the many cyclists that dominate the roads. It’s important to know that trams have the right of way at most junctions of the city and that traffic coming from the right has priority. When you get to the outskirts of Amsterdam, there’s a fantastic network of highways that make driving to nearby cities like Rotterdam and The Hague very enjoyable.
  • On Amsterdam’s roads, peak traffic starts to build around 7:00 and lasts until 9:00 in the morning, where driving can take 30 minutes to get into the city center during rush hour. In the evening, rush hour is from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Although the fastest way around Amsterdam is on the highway, or snelweg (which means “fast road”), try to avoid using them during rush hour -- especially the A2 road and near the airport.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Amsterdam for £24 or less
  • Book your car hire in Amsterdam at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Amsterdam are around 17% more expensive than airport locations on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Amsterdam?

Because Amsterdam is full of several public transport routes and features many narrow streets, it’s wise to rent a smaller car. The most popular car to rent is an economy one, as it’s the perfect size for parking and is the most economical choice in the event you get stuck in Amsterdam’s traffic. Plus, if you want to venture out of the city, Holland is very compact, so you won’t be doing many miles in your hire car.

What's the speed limit in Amsterdam?

Within the urban areas of Amsterdam, drivers will see a maximum speed limit of 31 mph, increasing to 50 mph as you get further away from built-up areas. The speed limit for the expressways, or autowegen, is 62 mph and 81 mph on the snelwegen. The speed limits on Dutch motorways may vary according to how busy it is and the time of day. If you see a green arrow on the matrix sign above the road, you can use this as an express lane.

How are gas prices in Amsterdam?

Due to the high taxes in the Netherlands, the cost of petrol is among the highest in the world. Amsterdam also has higher petrol prices than the national average. When you fill up your hire car, you can expect to pay around €1.70 for a liter as opposed to €1.68 in the rest of the Netherlands. This is about $7.30 per US gallon. Because petrol prices vary from station to station, you should try to fill up in the city center rather than on the snelwegen.

Where are the best places to park in Amsterdam?

Amsterdam has various parking options, depending on your budget and how central you want to be. In the city center, you can choose to make use of the digital parking system and park in a street-side space using a credit card. You can expect to be charged €5.00 ($5.67) per hour or up to €45 ($51) per day. If you want long-term and safer parking, you can find many garages located around the city. Park and Ride is another, cheaper option if you’re traveling from the outskirts of Amsterdam.
