Location information for Almere


Almere is a young city, but by now is has become the eighth largest city in the Netherlands. Originally, the city was planned as a spacious city with several cores. On second thoughts, the city has become to build on the green zones that originally separated the different parts. The 'old' city consists of the kind of residential areas designed to slow down traffic that was popular in the 1970's and 1980's. In the newer neighborhoods, there are trendy and striking houses.


In 1975, Almere had only 47 inhabitants, but by now that number has increased to 180,000. The intention was for Almere to have 400,000 inhabitants by 2030. Most of the people came from Amsterdam, although by now many inhabitants have been 'born and bred' in Almere.


The city is located in the south-west of the province of Flevoland, which consists entirely of polders: land that was reclaimed from the sea. Nearby are the beaches of the Gooimeer, which is also very popular among people who love aquatic sports. To the north of the city lies the nature area of the Oostvaardersplassen, a wetland.


Almere is a typical commuter city: the people live there, but they work elsewhere, often in Amsterdam or in one of the other cities on the 'old land'. The city tries to attract businesses that can no longer grow in the Amsterdam-Schiphol area. Whether they will be successful remains to be seen, because the limited railway and road connections with the old land prevent many companies from moving to Almere
The city is building an office center near the Centrum station, near its World Trade Center. Almere has various higher education institutes, and there are also branches of the University of Amsterdam.


The nearest airport is that of Lelystad. At the moment, the airport is used only by private and business aircraft, but there are plans to expand the airport. It is likely that within a few years regular flights will be able to use Lelystad Airport.
The national airport Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is located at about 40 kilometers from Almere.

Public transport

Almere has six city bus lines, operated by Connexxion under the name 'Maxx'. During rush hour, the buses arrive very frequently, and at other times you never have to wait more than 7.5 minutes, and after 8 pm no longer than 20 minutes.

Almere is connected to the railway network, although the line ends in Lelystad, to the north-east of Almere. For years there have been plans to extend the line to Groningen, but that will not be realized for some time to come. The city has no fewer than five railway stations, and a sixth is under construction.

Traffic and Parking

When the city planners designed Almere, they had a complete separation of the different kinds of traffic in mind. Almere has separate bus lanes and cycle paths, ensuring that slow and fast traffic don't get in each others' way. The city is accessible via the motorways A6 (from the A1 to Groningen) and A27 (from Almere to Utrecht). It is only during morning and evening rush hour that there tend to be long traffic jams, when the people commute to and from their work.

In the center of Almere parking in the street is paid. Around the center, there is a so-called blue zone, where you can only park up to one hour with a parking disk. People who live on those streets often have a special card for visitors. In addition, in Almere-Stad there are several car parks where you can park your rental car. In Almere-Muziekwijk there is a P+R area.


Although there are only two hotels, chances are that there will always be rooms available, because the city does no attract many business people or tourists (yet). Near the city there are a few campsites.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
