Car Hire Netherlands

Flat as a pancake, but a whole lot more interesting, the Netherlands is a small country, with a very distinct character.

A Selection Box Of Attractions

Heavily urbanized and densely populated, the Netherlands offers a variety of places to visit, crammed into a small geographic area. The countryside, lying largely below sea level, is gridded with canals and vital drainage ditches. Visit in the spring and summer and you will be greeted with a riot of color in the bulb fields.

The country is scattered with towns and villages, each with their own identity and accent, while the west and north coastlines boasts wide stretches of beautiful sandy beaches.

Explore The Netherlands By Car

Travelling by car is a versatile way of exploring the Netherlands. There are so many different experiences to be found in towns and villages, along the beaches, and deep in the countryside, which are much easier to reach by car.
