Apeldoorn is a city in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The history of Apeldoorn dates back to the year 792, when it was a city that was very suitable for growing crops. Apeldoorn is located in a municipality of the same name with approximately 160,000 inhabitants. Despite the fact that public transport in the Netherlands is quite well regulated, there is nothing nicer than being able to determine yourself where and when you are going somewhere. With a rental car you are flexible and you can organize your own day. With Driveboo you can compare different car rentals to see which one best suits your needs and wishes.
Apeldoorn is known for its 'green' character. In Apeldoorn you will find many monumental and detached houses and actually relatively few high-rise buildings, in comparison with other cities of this size.
Apeldoorn does not have an airport, but that will not be necessary either, as the distances in the Netherlands are always relatively small. However, Apeldoorn does have a train station and several bus lines. From the train station you can easily walk, take the taxi or public transport to one of the car rental companies we work with. It is best if you already rent a car prior to your visit to Apeldoorn. This is possible via our website. In the search engine you simply type in where and when you arrive in Apeldoorn and also from where and when you want to leave. Click on 'search for a rental car' and Driveboo will have listed all available rental cars with the best choice for you. But you can also use easy filters to compare, book and rent the right rental car. If you book well in advance you will see that there are more cars available for often a favorable price. The longer you wait, the more expensive it will be to rent. But no problem, should it still be the case that you unexpectedly have to visit Apeldoorn and therefore did not have the opportunity to arrange a car in time, then of course it is still possible to use Driveboo to search for available rental cars. Please note that the supply may then be less and that the prices will be higher. Are you not getting out of it? Please contact us and we will help you.
