- When you’re not dodging bicycles or swerving around pedestrians, look out for Amsterdam’s trams, the blue and white, bus-like vehicles dinging their way around the city. They have the right of way over cars at most junctions.
- With so much of Europe on your doorstep, it’s easy to get behind the wheel and zoom across to Germany or Belgium for a day trip, but beware: some car hire companies require you to pay a cross border fee if you wish to go into another country. Check with your car hire supplier before setting off.
- Few hotels in Amsterdam offer car parking; however, the city has an excellent park-and-ride system known as P+R Amsterdam. This scheme allows you to leave your motor in several secure car parks on the city’s edges where you’ll find excellent links into the centre. Note: you can only leave your car at a P+R Amsterdam car park for up to 96 hours.
