KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Nijmegen

  • If you want to visit Nijmegen, Netherlands, consider hiring a car, as multiple car hires in Nijmegen offer readily available vehicles. Using a hire car makes moving around the city convenient as the roads are well-maintained. With a hire car, you can access various tourist destinations easily and quickly and even visit nearby cities, including Arnhem and the town of 's-Hertogenbosch. When touring Nijmegen, you can also visit attractions, including the Millingerwaard, Ooijpolder, and the Liberation Route, which are difficult to get to by public transport.
  • Amsterdam International Airport (AMS) has various Nijmegen car hire companies, including Avis, Budget, Europcar, and Hertz, from where you can hire a car when flying into the airport. The desks belonging to car hires in Nijmegen are in the Schiphol Plaza, directly behind the Arrivals 3 area. Ensure you have all the correct documents, including a passport or ID and a valid driving licence to facilitate car hire in Nijmegen. You can pick up your vehicle at the car hire area near the parking garages.
  • When driving around Nijmegen, ensure you follow the traffic rules, including speed limit signs and traffic signals, to have a smooth driving experience in the city. The city is bicycle-friendly; therefore, you will encounter many cyclists and pedestrians on the roads. Be on the lookout for pedestrians crossing, especially on busy streets, and leave ample space for cyclists. Nijmegen has several roundabouts, so ensure you follow the traffic on roundabouts and indicate when exiting. Only drive on bus lanes if authorised to drive on them. When driving in traffic, vehicles coming from the right have priority, unless the traffic markings indicate otherwise. Be keen on intersections, particularly when you are entering from a minor road.
  • Nijmegen's traffic congestion occurs from 07:30 to 09:00 and 16:30 to 18:00 hours. During rush hours, avoid roads leading to downtown Nijmegen, as they experience increased traffic. The city experiences winter, so ensure you exercise caution when driving around Nijmegen during winter, as the roads become slippery and traffic becomes slower. In this instance, make sure you hire a car suitable for winter, with winter tyres and high ground clearance, such as an SUV. You can also go for a compact vehicle with reasonable traction control.
  • Book your rental car in Nijmegen at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Nijmegen are around 46% cheaper than other car types, on average
