Car rentals at Schiphol Airport

Almost all of the major car rental companies have representation at Schiphol.

Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Europcar, Go! Rent A Car, Hertz and Sixt

All cars can be picked up at the Car Rental and Service Desk  in Schiphol Plaza, the airport's main foyer. Just follow the 'Car Rental' signs. The desk staff will direct you to the nearby pick-up point.

Tip Get away from the airport

Note that car rental costs, on average, are higher at Schiphol Airport than in Amsterdam City or at an off-site rental agency. Try to get off-site for much better prices. The further you get from the airport, the cheaper your rental will be.
