If you’re looking for cheap car hire in Schiphol, a small car will do the trick. The benefits of a compact vehicle are that you can drive on narrow roads with lots of traffic with ease. You will also find parking much more convenient. Even though the Netherlands is relatively flat and has exceptional roads, if you want to drive in the countryside, you might still want a vehicle such as an SUV. These offer a larger and more luxurious interior, which can be beneficial for longer journeys.
It’s important that you do not exceed the speed limit in your hired car, otherwise you risk being prosecuted. If you get a speeding ticket, then this will be charged through your car hire agency, who will also pass on your information to the local law enforcement. In urban areas you can drive at 50 km/h (31 mph), on rural roads the maximum speed is 80 km/h (50 mph), whereas on motorways you can drive no faster than 100 km/h (62 mph).
There are lots of options for you to park your vehicle in Schiphol, making your car hire experience even more convenient. At Amsterdam Airport (AMS) there are many car parks to choose from that offer both short and long-stay options. Rates start from about €12 (£10.20) for 3 hours or around €28.50 (£24.5) for 24 hours. Kersenbloesempark is also a great place for parking close to Schiphol, with it offering about 50 parking bays. This is a free car park, which is an added benefit.
Cons:How 1 staff member can destroy the positive image you had of a company! That resumes our experience when we picked up our car in Amsterdam.
Pros:Service and hassle free rental
Cons:Check in was so rude and expensive
Pros:The car was clean, comfortable and used ridiculously little petrol.
Cons:I was quoted 160 euros for two days of insurance. Thats plain usury.
8,0 Very Good
Pros:fast and efficient
Pros:Car was well specced
Cons:Check in took ages c40 mins I think and as a result was late for my meeting
Pros:The pick up and drop off processes were super fast and friendly. I am not used to driving European cars and they answered a few questions that I felt were...lets say "basic", without making me feel like an idiot. The man at the vehicle return was very nice as well and informed me where the nearest gas station was so that I could fill up and return quickly before my reservation expired and I would have to pay for the gas refill.
8,0 Very Good
Pros:Drop off was Fast
Pros:Fast and professional service. Very nice people on the floor when you actually take the car.
Cons:We picked up the rental and immediately noticed the poor condition of vehicle. I told attendant and they said there was nothing that could be done. When arriving to our hotel and the city areas we noticed it wasn't going into gear properly. The valet attendant at the hotel also mentioned to us that something was wrong. We notified the company immediately and after 4 hours of waiting for a mechanic to show we decided to go get our kids something to eat. When we got back the mechanic had come and took the car with our personal belongings. Car seat, stroller and baby carrier and bag well over $1,000 worth of things. I had to pay over $100 in cab fees and call the police to get my things back from the company. This was all on Christmas Day. No one tried to fix or make this up to us. They did not care at all. I ended up having to spend $700 more in a rental because that's all that was available with another company at short notice on Christmas. I don't understand how people can be so cold hearted and inconsiderate.
Pros:The pick up agent is slow and unfair. She charged us for 2nd driver without our consent. Also, it took her over one hour to complete the process yet our pick up time started as soon as we talked.
Cons:The pick up time should be from the time we got the key, not from the time we were at the signing desk.
Pros:nice van. Exactly what we needed.
Cons:Price for an additional day was absurdly high. Van had dents all over it.
Pros:Car was what we expected and we were able to get in and out of the Avis counter pretty quickly. At the end, we dropped off the keys in the dropbox, which was convenient. Drop-off is 24/7.
Pros:The car was good
Cons:The pickup was beyond unacceptable. 2 hour wait. Cannot do that again. Would not rent from avis
8,4 Very Good
Pros:pretty good signage, easy dropoff, friendly staff.
Cons:still not sure if the pre-existing exterior damage was considered our responsibility.
Pros:Overcharged for no reason
Cons:Overcharged for no reason
Pros:staff was helpful and flexible
Cons:not clear from website that car was too small for 3 passengers plus suitcases
Cons:When I arrived, the car I booked wasn't available. The car they replaced it with was too small for our group, so we were stuck cramped in a tight space and having to shuttle back and forth for our whole trip. I asked for full insurance coverage and only received basic coverage. Now they say there is a small scratch on the bumper and have charged 850 euros to my credit card for the damage. This has been an absolute nightmare.
