Emmeloord is the administrative centre of the reclaimed lands in the northeast Netherlands known as Noordoostpolder - which translates as 'north east polder' referring to the location of some of the country's largest surface area of land reclaimed from the sea, thus keeping it populated to the tune of some 25, residents.
Hire a car in Emmeloord and You'll be able to visit the circle of villages which cropped up around the town in order to discover the key sites which have made the region one of the elite UNESCO World Heritage sites due to its agricultural and natural significance.
The Noordoostpolder stands as a remarkable feat of Dutch engineering known as the Zuiderzee Works which has operated since the 1920 to close off major waterways and keep the low-lying ground safe from floods, thus freeing it up for the settlement of and development in places like Emmeloord.
Hiring a car in Emmeloord allows you to get around and see the other villages like Marknesse and Ens quickly and at your own convenience. Although the main mode of transportation in the region is by bicycle - Emmeloord does not have a train station - car hire in Emmeloord exists to help you save time and precious energy!
Thanks to the smallish size of the Netherlands, hiring a car in Emmeloord or any one of the many car hire branches in the region allows for quick and easy transport to any of the country's major cities. Emmeloord's careful planning also places it close to two motorways - the A6 and the N50 - which pass through many other Dutch destinations.
Take the A6 and you will arrive in Amsterdam in an hour flat, while the N50 will get you to Zwolle in under 30 minutes. We recommend taking up car hire in Emmeloord to check out the local scenery and discover how it came to be, before soaking up the culture of the nearby big cities.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
