KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Leiden

  • Leiden is a city nearby the west coast of the Netherlands, with many lovely scenes of surrounding farmlands and loads of attractions in the city itself. When you choose to use services like car hire in Leiden, you have access to all of these options, and have the choice to take a meander through the Dutch countryside instead of taking a train. Some of the sites you should pay a visit to with your rented vehicle include Katwijk aan Zee Beach, which is around 7 miles from the centre of Leiden. The beach is particularly lovely in the summer months and in warmer weather.
  • Rotterdam Airport (RTM) is located only 19 miles away from Leiden town centre, making it ideal for your Leiden car hire company. Although the public transport system in the Netherlands is exceptional, the convenience of having a car at your disposal is second to none. The car hire offices are located at the Arrivals terminal, where a staff member will take you to your hire car. Having a car from a car hire in Leiden means you can enjoy your trip to the Netherlands relaxed, allowing you to take in more of the scenery than you'd be able to see from a train or a bus.
  • When driving in Leiden, caution should be exercised as it is popular for people to cycle in the city, especially to local destinations. Therefore, the inner city driving practise is slow and relaxed to yield to cyclists. The quality of the roads in Leiden is of a high standard, so navigating the roadways in the city is not a problem. There are no rough roads which may damage your vehicle, making driving an easy undertaking in Leiden.
  • As Leiden is a slightly older town, the roads are inevitably narrower than in other, more modern cities. There are also many bicycles in the city, so extra caution is advised when driving in the city centre. When you’re driving on the city's outskirts or on the highways between towns, it becomes a lot easier, and you will be able to take in the scenes of the surrounding rural farmlands.
