Geleen Guide

Galeen has the reputation of being, perhaps, the most dismal of places in the Netherlands. The town itself is built upon the remains of medieval farm land. Up until the late 1970's the town's main industry was coal mining. Today, those coal mines are closed, but in their place arose chemical plants. There is one bright spot in the town of Geleen, a three day music festival known as the Pinkpop Festival.

The Pinkpop Festival was first held in Geleen in the year 1970, and has been held every year since. For this reason, the Guinness Book of World Records has listed the Pinkpop Festival as the oldest annual festival on record. Every year over 60,000 music lovers come to Galeen to hear music performed on 3 stages. In the 38 years the festival has existed, Galeen has been host to some of the world's most famous rock musicians including U2, Beck, The Foo Fighters, The Smashing Pumpkins and Fleetwood Mac.

Over the course of history, over 1.5 million people have come to Pinkpop; resulting in millions of dollars being added to the economy of Geleen. Indeed, Pinkpop is a stable of the life in Geleen via creating jobs and tourism to the area. Camp sites have been created and open just for the weekend of the Pinkpop Festival. Local delis, restaurants, and shops set up stands among the camp sites in effort to sell their products and goods. The Pinkpop Festival is so popular that it always sells out and forged tickets have become an issue. Legit tickets are sold at official ticket shops and at post offices in and around Geleen. The best way to get around and see all that Geleen has to offer is to rent a car, although public transport is good in the area also.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk 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? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
