Rates will vary based on the dates you are traveling, how long you will need the car for and what type of model. Make sure that you pick a car with a transmission that you know how to drive, as most cars in Europe are manual. There may be an additional charge for drivers under the age of 25. Also, if you're planning to travel outside the Netherlands, make sure there are no restrictions on driving to any of your destinations.

In most cases, you will need a credit card to make a reservation. You can also rent a car directly from rental agencies at the Eindhoven airport or in various downtown locations.

Check to see that your reservation details match what the rental agency has at the pickup location. Confirm the return date, time and location and ask for directions if you need them.
Step 4
Follow all of the traffic laws when driving the rental car. If this is your first time driving in the Netherlands, make sure to review the signs and regulations before you get behind the wheel (see Resources below).
