Provided you like it of course. It is always a good idea to choose a car that is comfortable and in which you feel comfortable in. Perhaps you would like to drive around alone in a large, expensive car. Almost every rental company in Utrecht has such a luxury cars on offer. Do you travel a lot throughout the Netherlands and don't care where you park? Then a big car is no problem. However, if you would like to park in the city centre or as close as possible to a certain attraction, it can be more convenient to rent a smaller car that can park anywhere. In the Netherlands there is never really a need for a lot of horsepower or four-wheel drive, certainly not in and around Utrecht. Provided that the people you're with and any luggage fit in, you can choose any car you want. Please note that you most likely have to refuel Diesel.
After choosing the right rental car, you are not yet ready to go. There are extras to choose from. For example, do you want to have a GPS-system and if so, which one? How would you like to have your car insured? For example, do you go for extra passenger insurance, insurance for damage of tyres or windows and you can buy off any excess completely? Before you rent a car, it is wise to consider which car you need and which things you would like to have extra. Another tip: book the rental car in advance. It would be a pity if you arrive to rent a car, but the car you would like is already rented.
Whichever car you rent in Utrecht, don't forget to explore the area and if you have time, visit other cities, because Netherland has a lot to offer!
