What are the requirements to hire a car in Amsterdam?

There are a few driving requirements that you need to keep in mind if you wish to use cheap car hire in Amsterdam. Firstly, you need to be at least 21 years old and to have had your driver’s licence for more than one year to book a hire vehicle. Drivers below the age of 25 are subject to an additional fee, and so are those above 70 years old. Along with your driver’s licence, you must provide an additional form of photo identification, such as a national ID or a passport, and an International Driving Permit if your licence wasn’t issued in English. Make sure to also bring a valid debit or credit card at the time of your booking, as it is not possible to pay for your car hire in Amsterdam in cash.
