The Dutch drive on the right-hand side of the road and passing is forbidden on roads with a continuous white line. Speed limits in the Netherlands are as follows: City 50km per hour and highways 130km per hour. The 130km speed limit does not always apply to every highway, so please check the signs.

Cheese, windmills, famous painters and wooden shoes have attracted visitors from all over the world for centuries and with a rental car, you'll be able to take your visit to the next level. The Netherlands is a small country, and with almost 18 million residents the Dutch are forced to be creative. Explore the very flat countryside, stolen back from the ocean with the use of 'Dykes' or get lost in one of the many colourful tulip fields.
Not all of the Netherlands was once part of the North Sea. Go to the east and find yourself in the romantic 'Veluwe' nature reserve. Be amazed by the wildlife bridges and tunnels, designed to keep wildlife such as deer and squirrels off the road, or go down south to the province of North-Brabant, where the people are friendly and the architecture goes back to the 15th century. If you're into sailing and water sports, check out the north, especially the province of Friesland.

If you plan on visiting multiple countries in Europe, there are a few things to bear in mind. You will need to inform us of the countries you intend to visit at the time of booking and when you pick up your rental car. In general, travel across borders is permitted between west and central European nations. Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel into certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place. Fees may also be payable to the supplier, the main reason for this is to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area you are travelling to, and locally at border crossings.
