Van der Valk locations
At the following locations you have the possibility to start Ambering:
- Amsterdam – Amstel
- Stein – Urmond
- Uden – Veghel
Hubs are nothing more than places where you can pick up and drop off the Ambers. So for example: you can reserve an Amber in Eindhoven for a day trip to Amsterdam and choose to go back by train. Just leave the Amber at a hub. By doing this, you avoid traffic jams or are able to have a nice drink. The hubs are located at the Van der Valk locations in Eindhoven, Hilversum, Amsterdam – Amstel, Stein – Urmond and Ridderkerk. For the exact locations of the Amber hubs please visit driveamber.com/hubs.
What are the costs?
Amber is pay-as-you-go. You pay for what you use. The rates for cars are: €0.25 per driving minute and €0.10 per parking minute (outside a hub). Parking at a hub is always free. Electricity and insurance are included. Everything is arranged for you and there are no fixed costs. From 22:00 to 08:00 parking outside a hub is completely free.
How does it work?
After registering, you can book a car using the Amber app. The app will assign you to one of the Amber cars parked in front of the building. When you arrive at the car, you can open it using the app on your smartphone and simply drive away! Thanks to the artificial intelligence embedded in the Amber software, we are able to provide you with a car whenever you need one.
