      tram and train ticket

      Amsterdam Sep 26, 2015 at 2:35 AM

      If I go from Zeeburg P&R coach park at Zuiderzeeweg, take the tram 26 to centraal station and then the train to Sloterdijk coach park, can I do it on one ticket or do I have to get a separate ticket for train and tram?

    • Travel outside Arnhem

      Arnhem Sep 29, 2015 at 8:31 AM

      We are staying in Arnhem, but want to get to Pony-en Paardensportver "De Spreng" every day to watch the World's Dog Agility Competition in April 2016. Are their local buses available or will we have to rent a car?

    • Leiden/Amsterdam : Cards, Tickets and passes

      Amsterdam Oct 6, 2015 at 11:16 PM


      I will be visiting Netherlands next year with my wife and 6 month baby. I will be staying in Oegstgeest, outer Leiden. I am quite confused about the best and cheapest travel options including travel cards or passes and tickets. Below is my planned itinerary with costs:

      Day 1: Travel from Schiphol airport to Oegstgeest : 7 Euros per person (NS train and Bus 20/21 to Leidsebuurt), without OV Chipkaart. Sightseeing in Leiden through walking.

      Day 2: Travel from Oegstgeest to Amsterdam Centraal using train for 10 Euros per person. Sightseeing in and around Amsterdam including Heineken Experience, Dam Square, Westermarket, Flea/waterlooplein, Skinny bridge, Vondelpark, Van Gogh/Anne Frank museums, windmills etc.
      Travelling back to Oegstgeest from Amsterdam Centraal using train for 10 Euros per person.

      Day 3: Travel from bus 854 from Leiden Centraal to Keukenhof for 4 Euros per person. From there we will go to Haarlem, via Schiphol and further to Zaanse Schans via Amsterdam Centraal.
      Then Travelling back to Oegstgeest from Amsterdam Centraal using train for 10 Euros per person.

      Day 4: Travel from Oegstgeest to Amsterdam Centraal using train for 10 Euros per person for catching Thalys train to paris.

      For the above itinerary, Im planning to buy the below cards/passes:
      1) Multiday transport card - GVB for 24 hrs : 7.50 Euros each person for Day 2 around Amsterdam
      2) Amsterdam & Region Day Card for 24 hrs : 13.50 Euros each person for Day 3 around Keukenhof, Haarlem and Zaanse Schans.

      Please let me know how I can make my trip most economical or if I have opted for the correct tickets and passes. I want to spend lowest on travel and use only public transport-trains, buses, trams etc. Also the fact that Multiday card is valid on only GVB transport...for rest I will have to pay.

      As a rough calculation im spending 170-180 euros (including card prices), only for travel for 3 days. This I think is too much and I want to reduce the costs. Please suggest some alternate options so I can reduce the travelling costs around Leiden or some buses etc for to and fro journeys to Amsterdam central and back.

      Awaiting reply...

    • Transfer at Amsterdam

      Schiphol Sep 30, 2015 at 2:41 PM

      I am flying from Boston to Amsterdam with Delta and then Amsterdam to Glasgow with KLM. I have 1 hour and 40 mins between flights. My bags should be checked all the way through so I shouldn't need to pick them up and recheck. I was just wondering if I will have to go through security/passport control again before the flight to Glasgow?

    • 55 minutes between flights

      Schiphol Sep 13, 2015 at 4:21 PM

      I will be connecting from a Delta flight from Atlanta, Georgia, United States to another Delta flight to Bergen Norway thru Amsterdam. Will I make it? Do I go thru immigration or security again in Amsterdam before boarding flight to Bergen. Thanks.

    • Keukenhof from Leiden: Cheapest option?

      Keukenhof Sep 23, 2015 at 9:31 PM


      I wish to travel to keukenhof next year and will also purchase Amsterdam & Region Day card. While I will be staying in Leiden, I dont want to take the 858 bus from Schiphol. It will save me time if I directly board bus number 854 from Leiden Central. Now my question is how to purchase the ticket of this bus as its cost is not included in the region day card. Also I wont be returning back from the same route and I will further go to Haarlem, Zaanse Schans and come back via Amsterdam central on the same day. Which option will be more economical from the below and what shall be the total cost incurred:

      a) Taking one way bus ticket of 854 number from Leiden central to Keukenhof
      b) Buying combi ticket
      c) Connexxion office ticket including entrance to the Keukenhof gardens for bus 54..which is 15.50€ as written in one of the post above.

      Please inform on priority.

    • Bus Passes

      by CK5129 Online Now Jun 6, 2009 at 2:11 PM

      I'm just curious if they "punch" the bus passes when you use them or are they electronic? Is that the same for student passes?

    • Loved Brunssum (and area)

      by KisJutka Online Now May 3, 2006 at 1:28 PM

      Firstly, I just wanted to thank everyone here for all of their advice, help, and tips -- it made a big difference in knowing what to expect.

      We are moving to Brunssum and were there a while ago looking for a place to live and checking out the area. Both my husband were very impressed with the people (everybody was very nice and spoke English very well), we liked the area very much and felt good about the whole experience.

      I'm really looking forward to our move and am thinking that we will have a very positive experience living in the Netherlands.

      Thanks again for all your help!!!

    • Hotels in Brunssum?

      by KisJutka Online Now Mar 20, 2006 at 9:43 AM

      I am looking for a hotel in Brunssum or very close.

      The only place I've found is the Hotel Golf-Residentie Brunssummerheide -- it looks very nice, but is it walking distance from the city?

      I also found the Best Western Grand Hotel in Heerlen, which looks great too, but I would prefer to be right in Brunssum if that's possible.

      Thank you!!

    • Speak English in Brunssum?

      by KisJutka Online Now Dec 9, 2005 at 4:25 AM

      My husband's work hasn't 100% decided that we're coming to Brunssum, but it's looking good. :) We will know in a month or two. I've very excited! I hope that he gets the job.

      I have heard people say that everyone speaks English everywhere, including the Netherlands. I realize that English is pretty universal, but I don't like to make that kind of assumption.

      If my husband gets this job, should I learn at least some Dutch?

      Personally, I think that when you move to another country it's respectful to at least try to learn some of their language instead of expecting them to just know your language.

      Thank you in advance for your answers!

    • May be moving to Brunsum... would like some info please

      by KisJutka Online Now Oct 14, 2005 at 12:26 PM

      Hello all!

      My husband and I may be moving to Brunssum next year from Canada. I've been trying to find info on Brunssum on the web and the best information I've gotten has been from here! :)

      But I'm still curious about a few things. Moving to Europe sounds wonderful, but my concerns are more about the day to day things:

      1) Can I purchase English books and magazines easily?
      2) Is digital cable TV/satellite TV/high speed internet available in Brunssum? Can I watch TV in English?
      3) Is there a good transport system? (I know there's no train station, but is it far away?)
      4) How can we look for a houses to rent?
      5) Are there lots of things to do entertainment wise?
      6) How far is Amsterdam by bus or driving?

      Any other information would be appreciated as well.

      Thank you in advance for your help. :)
