Hiring a car in the Netherlands

Hiring a car in the Netherlands with DriveNow. As one of the most liberal countries in the world, the low-lying nation of the Netherlands is often a bucket list destination for visitors both young and old. Situated between Germany and Belgium, with the North Sea to the northwest, the Netherlands is in an ideal position for a European adventure with a difference.

Of course, the capital of the Netherlands - Amsterdam - showcases the Dutch way of life perfectly. From the elaborate canal system that snakes around the 17th century architecture and infrastructure to the famed red-light district and countless food and beverage restaurants, the city of Amsterdam is a window into the country's past, present and future.

Outside of this main destination, the Netherlands' flat landscapes with spectacular tulip fields and windmills are simply straight out of a postcard. With high quality roads connecting all major Dutch cities including The Hague, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Groningen, there is no better way to explore this fascinating country than with a rental car.
