Hertz at Schiphol Airport

With beautiful canals, cafes and art museums, Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most popular capital cities. Located just nine miles south-west of its center, Schiphol Airport is your gateway to the city and the rest of the Netherlands.

Our pickup point is in the heart of the airport, so you can quickly and conveniently get on with your trip. There are no hidden charges when you rent with us and in the unlikely event you find Hertz car rental from Schiphol Airport (AMS) for less, our best price promise means we’ll refund the difference.

You can pay for your car rental in advance or on collection and we won’t charge you if you need to change or cancel your reservation up to two days before collection.

Driving in and around Amsterdam

If you’re looking to rent a car at Schiphol Airport, you can find us behind Arrivals 3 in the Schiphol Plaza. Once you’ve picked up your keys, you’ll be ready to hit the road with Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague only a short drive away.

Amsterdam is nine miles away from the airport and takes about 20 minutes using the E19 and A10 freeways. There’s a freeway ring around the Dutch capital and the A1 route heads eastbound to the German border, while the A2 southbound connects the Netherlands with neighboring Belgium.

Parking in Amsterdam city center can sometimes be tricky with its historic canals and cycle lanes, so you may want to park at your hotel. With so many cyclists around, you’ll need to pay close attention to the dedicated lanes and traffic calming methods whenever you’re driving.

You’ll be driving on the right in the Netherlands. The usual speed limits are 130km/h (81mph) on highways (known as autosnelwegen), 100km/h (62mph) on expressways (autowegen), 80km/h (50mph) outside built-up areas and 50km/h (31mph) inside them.

A quick guide to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is famous for its laidback lifestyle, but there’s far more to the Dutch capital than meets the eye.

In the heart of the city, you’ll discover beautiful green spaces, art galleries, and historic canals. Some of Europe’s most celebrated museums are also located here, including the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank’s House, and the Rijksmuseum.

Get your bearings

Amsterdam's Old Center is the heartbeat of Amsterdam and home to the city’s Chinatown and the historic De Wallen neighborhood, which is full of quaint bookshops and cafes. Dam Square is only a quick drive along the Damrak from Centraal Station and from here you can navigate the city center with ease.

Elsewhere in the Old Center, you’ll find the Royal Palace (Koninklijk Palace), the former home of the Dutch Royal Family. Other places of note in Dam Square include Madame Tussauds, the waxworks museum, the New Church (Nieuwe Kerk), and Beurs van Berlage, the former Dutch Stock Exchange building now used for conferences and concerts.

Sunflowers and tulips

Amsterdam is home to some of Europe’s grandest art museums. One of the most famous, the Rijksmuseum, includes Rembrandt’s famous The Night Watch. You can also see some of Vermeer’s masterpieces on display.

No trip to Amsterdam can take place without a visit to the Van Gogh museum. His swirling artworks have brought joy to millions, especially his signature piece, Sunflowers.

Anne Frank’s House and the Jewish Museum offer a fascinating and touching insight into life in the Netherlands during World War II. Be sure to arrive early, as there is often a big line outside during the day. You can also pay a visit to the Tulip Museum to discover all about one of the country’s biggest exports.

Culture lovers can get the Museumjaarkaart (The Museum Card), which gives you discounted entry to many of the city’s museums.

Amsterdam’s green spaces

Amsterdam’s parks are great places to relax during the warmer months. On sunny days, it can be hard to choose which one to pick, but Amstelpark, Vondelpark, and Westerpark are all huge draws. If you decide on the Vondelpark, then you may want to head over to the Vondelcs cultural center for a spot of lunch or dinner. 

Day trips from Amsterdam

If you’re renting a car at Schiphol Airport, then you’ll be within an hour’s drive of Rotterdam via the E19 freeway. The post-industrial port is now a business center with vibrant shops and excellent art museums. The Hague is a quieter city compared to Amsterdam and Rotterdam, but it has a huge amount to offer, with its art deco architecture and boutique stores attracting visitors all-year-round.

You can get to The Hague in around 35 minutes from Schiphol, taking the A4 freeway.

Roaming Rotterdam

As a compact country with an excellent road network, you’ll find the Netherlands’ biggest cities are easily accessible by car.

The second city of Rotterdam offers an interesting contrast to Amsterdam. A lively port city, it has risen from the ashes of World War II, establishing itself as a place of striking architecture with a thriving culinary scene.

One of its biggest attractions is the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, where you’ll be able to see works from Dutch masters including Van Gogh and Rembrandt.

Rotterdam’s Cube Houses offer a potential glimpse into the future. Resembling optical illusions, these intriguing designs rest on one corner, making them appear diamond-shaped. One of them has been turned into a museum and is well worth a visit.

Car rental from Schiphol Airport allows you to head into Amsterdam and see more of the rest of the Netherlands – all at your own convenience.
