A car rental in Zaltbommel is possible with Amber Cars

Concept of Amber Cars
As from February 2020, Van der Valk Hotel Zaltbommel-A2 became the 7th Valk-hotel starting a collaboration Amber Cars. Amber Cars offers an on-demand mobility with electric cars. Guests can pick up an Amber Cars at a so-called “Amber Hub” and leave the car behind on another location in The Netherlands. Hotel Zaltbommel disposes of a hub station for 2 Amber cars.

With the collaboration, Van der Valk and Amber meet the common vision on sustainable entrepreneurship and mobility of the future. With the Amber concept, cars will be used more efficiently. Above all, less cars and less parking spaces are needed, which contributes to the quality of city life and to the reduction of CO2 emissions.

Location Amber Hub Zaltbommel
You will find the Amber Cars on the electric charge station of Van der Valk Hotel Zaltbommel, which is close to the entrance of parking lot P2 Meetings & Events. Both hotel guests and regular guests with a valid driver’s license can make use of the electric car rental system.

How does it work? 
To use Amber, create an account on the Amber-website and download the Amber App. Do you use the car? Reserve an Amber car, pick it up at a chosen Amber Hub, leave your car behind on another hub and check-out your car. After check-out, the costs of your trip  will be written off automatically from your creditcard or debit card. Amber always guarantees to have a car ready at the requested time.

With Amber, you drive a 100% electric BMW i3. This is a hatchback car for 4 people. The car has an action radius of 200-300 kilometers. The cars have all-risk insurance. In case of damage, you only pay your own risk.
