Explore Amsterdam by an electric Hertz city scooter
Visitors to Amsterdam can now take cycling up a gear as Hertz introduces electric city scooters to its rental fleet.
Cycling has always enjoyed popularity amongst visitors to the city and now green and adventurous tourists can experience Amsterdam on two wheels - without needing to pedal. Rental rates start at €15 for 3 hours from Overtoom, Amsterdam. Hertz hopes the electric scooters would appeal to tourists and business travellers alike, touting its freedom, flexibility, ease-of-use and convenience for getting around and parking.
It also presents a new choice for environmentally-conscious travellers as the Hertz city scooter is CO2 neutral. With a maximum speed of 35 km/ph it has a total reach of 50 kilometres and can easily be re-charged by simply using an electricity socket. Hertz electric city scooters are the latest addition to the Hertz Green Collection of environmentally friendly and fuel efficient vehicles.
"Whether for business or leisure travel, consumers are increasingly interested in innovative and environmentally friendly products and services. The Hertz city scooter is such a service - allowing people the freedom to explore the city on an electric two wheeler that boasts zero carbon emissions. Hertz plans to expand the service to other Netherlands cities, such as Rotterdam, very soon," explained Henk van den Helder, General Manager Hertz Benelux.
The minimum age for renting scooters is 21 years and renters need to have had their driver's license or motoring certificate for a least one year. Helmets can also be rented. You can book directly at Hertz's downtown Amsterdam location, Overtoom, or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone +31 (0)20 612 2441.
