"From the UK I think the best..." Schiphol Airport Tip by eurotravels

Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam: 67 reviews and 85 photos


From the UK I think the best source of flights is the internet. There are some cheap deals about if you are prepared to travel at less popular times. Take a look at for flights from around £60 inclusive return (but if you wanted to go for queens day, i.e 30 April, the flight alone looks like around £300!)
Once you're in Holland the train service from the airport is easy and reliable. Buy your ticket then go to the station downstairs.
A lot of things are within easy walking distance but for anything else the tram is quick and easy. We found the simplest thing was to buy a strip of 15 tickets ( a strippenkaart). If there is no conductor on the tram you need to stamp it in the machine. It's two tickets for each trip. Guidebooks explain in more detail.
From what I've seen parking would be a problem, and there is no need for a car.
