KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Utrecht

  • Suppose you’d like to tour Utrecht extensively. In that case, you should rent a car from one of the car rentals in Utrecht. This is because, with a rental car, you’ll be able to move from one local attraction to another directly and quickly. Some of the top destinations you can drive to while in Utrecht include Castle De Haar, a rebuilt medieval-style castle with expansive gardens; Rietveld Schröder House, a world-heritage listed house; Museum Speelklok, a museum of music-making machines; and Nationaal Militair Museum, an aviation and military history museum. Alternatively, you can take short road trips to nearby towns such as Woerden, Driebergen, De Bilt, Zeist, Houten, Bilthoven, Stichtse Vecht, Bunnik, Maarssen, and IJsselstein.
  • If you’re flying into Utrecht, you’ll alight from your flight at Schipol Airport, as this airport is the closest to the city. At this airport, you can easily rent a car, as it features counters for Utrecht car rentals such as Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Hertz, and Sixt. These agencies are found in Schipol Plaza, directly behind Arrivals 3. At the counter of your preferred car rental agency, you’ll get all the help you need to finalize your rental agreement, as the counters at this airport are manned by professional staff.
  • You will find driving your car rental in Utrecht a walk in the park. This is because this city’s roads are wide, well-tarmacked, have proper paths for pedestrians and cyclists, and feature visible road signs. However, while driving in this city, you should maintain a low speed, cut out any distractions, constantly scan your surroundings, stay patient and avoid abruptly changing lanes even behind a slow car, maintain a safe distance between you and the car ahead, and never go on the offensive. Adopting these driving techniques is relatively essential, given that not all Utrecht motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians fully adhere to traffic rules.
  • In Utrecht, one of the key challenges you’ll face is traffic. This is because a good number of this city’s residents depend on their cars to move around. In the morning, traffic usually occurs from 7:00 am to 9:00 am, while in the evening, it occurs from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. GPS navigation systems usually assist drivers to be aware of the traffic situation in the cities they are in. This being the case, if you’d like to avoid getting stuck in traffic, you should ask for a GPS navigation system to be installed when renting a car from your preferred car rental in Utrecht.

They were very accommodating with clean and new cars. Would rent again. Only thing is the location isn’t the most convenient. Don’t drop the car off past 8 on Sunday, you will find yourself stranded in the area.

Staff were great. Person in the garage explained all of the controls and the audio system of my Citroen C4 vehicle.

One of the tires of the car became flat on the highway. Had to drive the car to the repair center at the speed of 5km/h. Spent 2 hours in the repair center and was told the tires were to worn and should have been replaced long time ago. VERY VERY BAD EXPERIENCE. How could you even rent a car like this? Can't imagine what could have happened if I hadn't noticed the flat tire.
