The Markermeer, almost a stone's throw from Almere, is a beautiful piece of nature reserve. The IJmeer and Gooimeer, near Almere, are also worth a visit. If you prefer to go into the woods, you can go to the Soesterduinen near Amersfoort or of course see the big game in the Oostvaardersplassen around Lelystad.

At Driveboo it is very simple, because we have all the car rental companies with associated conditions for you listed. Which rental car you would like to rent in Almere is of course a personal choice. Are you going for a small and economical and mostly cheap rental car, or for ultimate luxury and choose a car that is equipped with the latest gadgets. Talking about it: often you have to choose which extras you want to include in your rental car. Think, for example, of a GPS-system. When there are several people in the car a larger rental car is necessary. Don't forget to ask how much space a car has for luggage. This can be disappointing! It is wise to rent the car before you need it. That way you can be sure to drive the right type of rental car, that you prefer.
