Exactly the car expected. Pickup was great. Nick in west Amsterdam was so cool, even shared our travel photos with him! Drop off at airport was a breeze.
10.0 ExcellentMay 4 2022
Line is super long at the airport, long queuing time. But staff at the counter is super friendly, and greeted me happy birthday.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2022
Do not book Sixt through Kayak! I booked it then when I called Kayak to change drop off location was told I needed to cancel and rebook. I said ok and then was told I needed to rebook via VENMO funds because Kayak workers could not process credit cards due to Covid/working at home. Further, I was informed that unless I Venmo funds as directed I would forfeit deposit on original booking. Sounded like a scam. Now contesting fraud with credit card company. Lesson: book directly with Sixt (which I did and the rental was fine — avoid problems by booking direct.
8.0 ExcellentApr 30 2022
Very long wait (over 30 minutes) in line at counter at Schiphol to pick up the car. For the rest it was fine.
2.0 MediocreApr 30 2022
We rented an electric car and they failed to provide a charge card which called all sorts of problems. Then they refused to help when we asked for it.
6.0 GoodApr 28 2022
The return of the vehicle was while the place was closed. We were told to park the vehicle on the street and pay for parking. The issue was that no parking was available within walking distance to drop off the car key. After 2 hours of driving around and wasting gas we found a spot but now had to fuel up. Due to celebrations and road closures we had to drive 5 km away to find a gas station. By the time we returned no parking spots were available again so we wasted more time and money driving around. Recommend having a dedicated parking spot or number to call to have someone show up and take possession of the vehicle.
6.0 GoodApr 25 2022
Drop off was not so clear, nobody at the office and no clear indication where to park the car. The phone line is kind of useless, spending time to linsten the automatic answers and speak with someone is difficult. The rest was good
10.0 ExcellentApr 23 2022
Was helped by Marius. What a helpful guy. Got a free upgrade to a A5 from intermediate. Car still very expensive though
8.0 ExcellentApr 21 2022
I rented a fully electric car, the service was great and i had no issues getting my car and receiving a fully charged car (I was expecting a fully charged car tho). However charging the electric car has been an issue, the car charged once but didn't want to charge anymore, I ended up with no battery and had to drop off the car 1 day earlier and call off my trip earlier.
8.0 ExcellentApr 21 2022
There were so many people at the same time waiting for the pick up that we had to wait for over 40 minutes. The staff were very friendly and helpfull but the line was too much after a flight.

For a compact car, the VW T-Cross we got had surprisingly many features, hill holder, lane assist, wireless phone charging, great navigation and parking aid. Stuff was nice. However, keep in mind that presenting a credit card is a must, debit cards are not accepted.
6.4 GoodJul 11 2019
The car was good. It ran great. No issues with it. Got me to point A to point BI had purchased the accident insurance from you Kayak. But when I arrived from the Pick up desk and told them that I had insurance already they told me if I didn’t not purchase insurance through them they were going to have to place a €1000 deposit hold on my credit card. All the money I had left.

Car was comfort and cost saving from fuel consumption point of view.I didn't get enough explanations on how to use the GPS and it took me couple of minutes, while driving to get it working. I have returned the car few min' before 7:00pm and I was told that I can drop the keys at the office but the staff already left and I needed to go to the parking

It was pricy.
4.4 OkayMay 14 2017
Being threatened by the desk guyI did like the price and the Ford Fiesta.When we picked up the car it took us 40 min. I did book the cars in Kayak.com. They have the the chance of having insurance for 9€/day. And I booked the 2 cars with the Kayak,s Insurance. When we wanted to get theses cars, there was a blond woman that insisted in havin to pay 27€ a car in terms of getting the insurance... otherwise we had to pay over 2000€. She took over 2000€ from my credit card to book 2 Ford Fiesta, but before she had been so rude to me. Telling that I might be robbed, or that she has noting to do with Kayak. She made me feel quite miserable, and she got my nerves. My escursion to Kokenhauf with my family... ruined. After that his partner took like 8 min reviewed each car to see if there was something wrong to charge me when we were back. Like 5h later and 84kms. I really though she was going to come up with something to screw me... because I didn't want to pay daily insurance twice.

Counter agent lied to me. Pushed very aggressively for me to upgrade my car despite being told no repeatedly. When I went to pick up my car, the level that I had reserved was not available. In fact, the only car available was the very one he tried so hard to get me to pay extra for. Dishonest, and not likely his own dea. I have had many issues with dishonest behavior at this rental site on Harry Banninkstraat over the years. The staff is poorly trained, and they are given incentives to churn customers for extra payments. Avoid.

10.0 ExcellentSep 27 2021
We arrived early while the location was still closed. One of the employees arrived early to open up and helped us immediately so we were able to get on our way. Great courteous service that went over and beyond: very impressed!
5.9 OkaySep 27 2021
picking up the car was great, but when we arrived to drop off the car no one was around until 8am and we didn't see a key box anywhere. We almost missed our flight because I had to run back at 8am to drop off the keys and the lady working would get me a receipt for our return.
10.0 ExcellentSep 25 2021
The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we returned the car, my mobile phone wasn’t working properly, so they allowed me to call my daughter on their phone.

Long Line + BS EZ Fuel ChargeNice new car.Waited 60 minutes in line to receive the car. Yes, they had 3 agents working there, but everyone showed up at once and they new it was the case as they now how many cars they release in a day. No line or queue setup either so it was a bit of a free for all in getting up to the front. Finally when returning the car to this location you just have to park it in the neighborhood. Which, leaves you liable for the cars damage, parking charges, and so on until they are open again and receive the car in. Then, to top it all off because I returned the car after hours and was unable to show a gas receipt (when I filled it all the way up) I was charged a flat rate EZ Fuel charge.
9.6 ExcellentAug 3 2017
Great car and easy locationThis place was very accessible, especially if you are not traveling to-and-from Amsterdam through the airport. You can walk to this location from the main train station!The service was pleasant, but we had to wait about 30 minutes at both pick-up and drop off to talk to an agent.

Fast, easy, seamless to pick up and return.When we booked the car, there was no indication that the office would close early (12pm) on our return day or that after hours return requires paying 6€ per hour for parking.

3.6 MediocreMar 16 2018
Wrong Car, Wrong Insurance, Big HeadacheWhen 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.
4.4 OkayJan 1 2018
Contract was absolutely without insurance. Personnel in office told me that and I had to pay 30 EUR more for insurance. I expected basic insurance.

Got charged for an extra day for nothingCar in good condition, no issues.Rented for one day, got charged for two :-( Booked from 9am till 9am; got the keys at around 9:40 (line + preparing the car), ***asked by a staff member to return between 9 and 10am***, returned at 9:55. Time in the receipt — 9:20 to 10:02. Support doesn't care and claims I was late according to the contract. After the second email they explicitly said, "we are unable to comment on the remark our staff member may have made", but did refund me the insurance for that extra day! I don't get the logic at all, and even more I don't get the attitude. Extremely upset.

I didn’t like the fact that kayak gives the WRONG RETURN ADDRESS ON EMAIL. When I pressed GET DIRECTIONS I expect it to be the correct address. VERY STREESFUL driving around Schiphol trying to find the correct address after searching for 30 minutes and running overtime almost. I took it up with green motion and they said they advised their move to you 12 months ago so is not their fault. PLEASE FIX KAYAK!! Unimpressed guys.

Top tips for renting a car in Amsterdam

  • On your trip to Amsterdam, you want the freedom to explore both the city center and outskirts at your own pace. Discover traditional Dutch wonders like windmills and wooden clogs in Zaanse Schans or head to Bloemendaal aan Zee and Zandvoort aan Zee beach, only a short drive away from Amsterdam.
  • Ready to rent a car on your Amsterdam vacation? If you are flying into Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Airport, whether you are on an international or internal flight, you will need to follow the 'Car Rental' signs. You find the rental car desk and service desk in the airport's main foyer, Schiphol Plaza.
  • As a new driver in Amsterdam, you need to watch out for the narrow twisting streets at the center of the city, as well as the many cyclists that dominate the roads. It’s important to know that trams have the right of way at most junctions of the city and that traffic coming from the right has priority. When you get to the outskirts of Amsterdam, there’s a fantastic network of highways that make driving to nearby cities like Rotterdam and The Hague very enjoyable.
  • On Amsterdam’s roads, peak traffic starts to build around 7:00 and lasts until 9:00 in the morning, where driving can take 30 minutes to get into the city center during rush hour. In the evening, rush hour is from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Although the fastest way around Amsterdam is on the highway, or snelweg (which means “fast road”), try to avoid using them during rush hour -- especially the A2 road and near the airport.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Amsterdam for $52 or less
  • Book your rental car in Amsterdam at least 2 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Amsterdam are around 29% cheaper than airport locations on average
