KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Groningen

  • Get your adventurous spirit ready for good times on the road with cheap car hire in Groningen in the Netherlands. This compact city is a fantastic cultural hub, filled with monuments, universities and art. With a high number of students in the city, you will find the nightlife and dining out options to be as diverse as they are buzzing. With the towns of the Netherlands being quite close to one another, Groningen car hire can take you to several historical and interesting places quite easily. Try visiting Leek, based just 14km (8 miles) away and see the wooded estate land of Landgoed Nienoord. Here, you can enjoy Leekstermeer, a beautiful lake that offers excellent sailing and swimming in summer.
  • When you arrive in the city of Groningen, you might arrive at Schiphol Airport, just outside Amsterdam. It is about two hours away by car, so organising cheap car hire as you land is a great idea as you won't need to arrange transfers to and from the airport. Schiphol Airport has several agencies servicing car rental needs, including National, Hertz, Thrifty, GREEN MOTION, Alamo, Dollar and more.
  • When it’s time to drive your hire car in Groningen, you will have a pleasant driving experience, with excellent motorways such as the A7 and A28 being your main access to the surrounding areas. Groningen often has road signs in English, as the student population is highly international, so navigation should be easy. In Holland, there is an 0.05% alcohol blood limit, and you will be driving on the right-hand side of the road. Seat belt use is mandatory for all passengers, and mobile phone use is strictly forbidden when behind the wheel.
  • While driving your hire car in Groningen, you'll want to take note of a few local driving conditions. You will not be able to drive in the pedestrian area of the city between 12 and 5:00 p.m. Th pedestrian zone is in the inner city close to the university. The Netherlands is crazy about bicycle usage, and you will see more bicycles on the road than in most other places, so always keep an eye out for them on the cycle paths and be careful not to veer into their lane. Another important factor is that some roads may be relatively narrow, so hire a smaller car so you can enjoy every part of Groningen with ease.
  • Book your rental car in Groningen at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Groningen are around 5% cheaper than other car types, on average

KAYAK

Cons:

I ordered the car rental for Gronigen Airport at a fee of £60. Kayak booking system then failed to confirm car rental at airport. Which required me to catch a taxi into the city at a cost of £40. Furthermore, I did not receive a booking confirmation for 7 days which also failed to precisely specify the car hire location as confirmed by Sixt. What originally had been a good deal ended up being more expensive, time consuming and hassle than had I taken the most expensive option. I will not again use Kayak to book car hire.
