"Cash vs. credit cards at Centraal Station" Central Station & Trains Tip by steedappeal

Central Station & Trains, Amsterdam: 60 reviews and 107 photos

I was surprised that NL Railways only accepts cash or a smart-chip based credit card at their ticket windows (unlike Belgian Rail)! There is a Travelex currency exchange next door (offering lousy rates) in a pinch. ***Make sure to buy tickets in advance because the lines to purchase can be very lengthy and frustrating.

Address: Stationsplein, Amsterdam
Type: Train
