If you are an expat and planning on staying in the Netherlands for a longer period of time to study or work, you will probably receive help for a few practical things, including opening a bank account for example. You will also receive tips about the Dutch housing market and moving to our country from wherever you come from. However, have Dutch people also told you about where you can rent the best and cheapest cars?

Discover the Netherlands? Rent a car!

So the move will be fine, as will things like your study. Then it is still a matter of discovering the Netherlands. Because despite the help that is offered to you, it still says nothing about what the Netherlands stands for, how the different provinces differ from each other and what the sights are here exactly. If you want to discover the Netherlands, renting a car is the best thing you can do as an expat. Rent a car and get out and about. You might even discover a place where you want to live in the future!

EasyTerra is the prove that renting a car should not be expensive

For expats that do not know: renting a car, called een auto huren in Dutch, should not be expensive. This is certainly not the case if you use the services of EasyTerra. This is a comparator of car rental companies. It works simply. On the EasyTerra platform you can indicate that you need a rental car. It does not matter where you need it. You can then indicate your personal preferences and even indicate a preferred brand of car or type of car. The comparator then presents you with a number of options. These are interesting options that stand for both quality and a very affordable price. You then choose which option you prefer and book that rental car.

Get used to the low speeds on the Dutch roads

EasyTerra proves that renting a car certainly does not always cost a lot of money, not at all. Moreover, a large, luxurious and spacious vehicle is not necessary to discover the Netherlands. Doing this is possible in a normal car as well of course. A fast car is also not necessary, because high speeds on Dutch roads are increasingly restricted. As a future resident of our country you will have to get used to that too.

Know exactly where you have ended up

Many people who have a new work environment, move within a country and especially expats really benefit from going out in their new environment right away. A car is not always something you immediately have. That is why renting a car is a perfect alternative. The Netherlands is certainly an excellent place to explore by rental car. You go very quickly from the North to the South side of the country and you can quickly get a good impression of everything that makes our country so special.
