Rotterdam Airport in a nutshell
Rotterdam Airport was originally called Zestienhoven Airport. It was opened in 1956 and initially it was very successful. In the 1970's, things went downhill and there was talk of closing the airport. The tide turned with the economic revival in the 1990's and a decision was made to maintain the airport at its current location near Rotterdam. It now is an important regional airport; Rotterdam Airport processes annually over a million passengers. There is no metro or train connection, but the airport is easy to reach by car or bus. There are a number of hotels near the airport, the closest one immediate in front of the entrance.
At the airport there is a shop that specialises in perfume and typically Dutch souvenirs. If you want to get a bite to eat, there are two restaurants at the ground floor and at the first floor.
There are ATM machines, and GWK Travelex has an office in Rotterdam Airport where you can exchange money. There is wireless Internet available throughout the airport. In addition, the airport is very accessible to disabled people.
In the aviation industry Rotterdam Airport is indicated by the abbreviations RTM (IATA airport code) and EHRD (ICAO airport code).

Frequently asked questions
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).
