KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Rotterdam

  • Hire a car on your visit to Rotterdam to ensure that you can explore the city and surrounds on your own timetable. After exploring Rotterdam itself, why not take a drive and visit the picturesque city of Delft, just under half an hour’s drive from Rotterdam? You could also venture further afield and go to the beach at Noordwijk, a destination you can generally be at in under an hour in your Rotterdam car hire.
  • Car hire companies at Rotterdam The Hague Airport (RTM) are situated in the public space on Floor 0 within the terminal building, and here you can hire cars from companies such as Avis, Hertz and Europcar. Once you’ve completed your paperwork, it’s easy to find your car hire in Rotterdam, as the hire car parks are located between P3 and P6, an easy 8-10min walk from the terminal.
  • You’ll be happy to know that drivers in The Netherlands are generally courteous and the roads are well maintained. When driving your Rotterdam car hire, it is important to note that they drive on the right-hand side of the road. Although lanes tend to be narrow, drivers are careful and give priority as per the rules of the road and as indicated by signs. Drivers in The Netherlands don’t make excessive use of their car horns.
  • The rush hour times in Rotterdam are when the roads are busier and congestion and delays could slow you down. Try to avoid driving during the week between 08:00 and 09:30 when commuters are trying to get to work. The evening rush hour is worse, with the peak being at around 17:00; though, it is wise to try and avoid driving between 16:30 and 18:00. The busier time of the week is on Fridays between 16:00 and 17:00, as people start to leave the city for the weekend.
  • Book your car hire in Rotterdam at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Rotterdam are around -67% cheaper than other car types, on average

City driving and short-distance journeys are best done in a compact, economy car or perhaps an intermediate sedan, as these will be easier to manoeuvre around the narrow roads and into parking spaces.

    There is no free parking in Rotterdam and you will need to pay whether you are parked on the street or in some of the multi-storey car parks that exist within the city. In the case of on-street parking, payment can only be made with a credit or debit card and the cost is based on zones, with the cheaper rate at about € 1.80 (around A$ 2.70) per hour up to roughly € 4.62 (around A$ 6.80) per hour. In addition to city centre parking, there are several park-and-ride options, such as P&R Alexander and P&R Schenkel on the outskirts of Rotterdam, where you can park your car for free if you continue on public transport; otherwise, you will pay about € 0.50 (around A$ 0.80) per 15min.

Pros:

Staff friendly and professional. Paperwork was done at a decent pace.

Cons:

Distance from port. My fault for choosing an Aygo but definately need a more powerful engine. The sluggish engines increase chances of accidents. Also, prices could be better as only hired car for 5 hours.

Cons:

I reserved a car in the evening for the next morning, only to be called that morning and told there were no cars available. I had to look for a different company on my own to get a car, which set schedule back a day. While the reservation was last minute, they shouldn't allow people to reserve cars when they have none.

I had a reservation with Budget that they refused to honor, when I arrived. I had made the reservation months earlier online. When I arrived, they actually gave me the car no problem, then it had something wrong with it, so they went to exchange it for another one. Somewhere in that process they decided that they couldn't give me a car at all for my original reservation, and refused to honor their commitment. I WAS SHOCKED. So I was standing there, stranded, with my 72-year old mother, two dogs and 5 suitcases in a country where neither of us spoke the language, and she hadn't left the US in probably 20 years. It was awful, unethical, and honestly, appalling, that they would do that. Then, they wouldn't even cancel my reservation and give me my money back! So I still need to call and ask for a refund. But it took us nearly a week to reach our destination, having to go way out of our way on trains, and rental cars... it was a nightmare. We had spent nearly $30k on this trip around the reservation we had made with Budget. I don't even want to know how much more it costs us to fix what they did in Rotterdam. Unbelievable.
