The rules of the road and the road systems in the Netherlands are largely similar to the rest of Europe and the US, which makes driving in the country as a visitor fairly straightforward. Some differing laws to take note of are the restrictions on horn usage (only permitted in dangerous situations) and the requirement to only use low beam headlights after dark.
To rent a car in the Netherlands, you must be at least 19 years of age. However, much like in the United States, most car rental agencies will apply a surcharge to drivers under 25. You can drive on your home country’s driver’s license in the Netherlands, but it is recommended for US nationals to obtain an international driving permit.
Petrol prices are more than twice the price that they are in the United States, due to the high taxes in the Netherlands. In the US, a gallon of petrol will cost you around 2.50 USD, while the same petrol in the Netherlands will cost around 6,50 EUR (7.30 USD) per gallon. Petrol stations are plentiful, and debit and credit cards are widely accepted, so you won’t have to worry about carrying a pocketful of euros to fill up.
The speed limits in the Netherlands are consistent with most of the speed limits in Europe, which are similar and in places slightly faster than in the US.
