Did you just turn 18 and do you have your driver's license? And if you have saved up enough money you can buy your first car and tour around the Netherlands. Renting a car, however, is often a different story. Diks Autoverhuur (the car rental company) is happy to tell you more about it, so you know exactly what to expect when you want to rent a car in the Netherlands.
What is the minimum age to rent a car?
Did you already get your driving license at the age of 18 (or 17)? Congratulations, you're one of the early birds! With a driving license in your pocket, you can drive around safely and with enough confidence. However, renting a car is often a bit more complicated. Most rental companies in the Netherlands have a minimum age requirement, which is usually not 18 years old. For example, most car rental companies have a minimum age of 21 or 23 years. Taking your friends with you by rental car on holiday, a weekend away or to a festival, is therefore not always an option if you are under 21 (or in some cases 23).
On top of this age requirement, if you want to rent a car, you will need to have had your driving license for a while. For example, car rental companies often require that you have a valid driver's license for at least 1 to 2 years. So you should already have some driving experience on paper. Note: this may differ per country.
