Maastricht’s city policy is focused on a car-free city centre. Many streets in the city centre are not accessible by car. This makes bikes much more efficient than cars for most students. However, some of you may still want to own a car during your studies.
In this section you will find answers to several questions:
- What is required for me to drive in the Netherlands?
- How much does parking cost?
- Is my drivers licence valid in the Netherlands?
- Do I need car insurance?
- Are there car sharing services?
- Where can I rent a car?
- How can I book a taxi?
If you drive in Maastricht, always carry your valid driver’s licence, proof of insurance and vehicle registration documents with you.
