Cheapest prepay mobile company/offer in Netherlands?

Cheapest prepay mobile company/offer in Netherlands?

I am planning a 6 week trip to Netherlands, I need some advice on the cheapest prepaid mobile offer? What company has the cheapest SIM with focus on local SMS? I am interested in sending SMS (to Dutch mobiles only). No roaming, no international, or other extras, just a few local calls, and most importantly I need to know who offers the cheapest outgoing SMS, and where to send free SMS (online)? What company do you recommend? I think the complete list is here: KPN, Telfort, Tele2, T-Mobile 24/7, UPC, Vodaphone, and I think there are several more. LowCall, and Simyo are online offers, but does that apply to me? I have a Dutch address, but no Dutch identity number (if required). Thanks for your advice.

I use these guys, but that may not apply if you use it for only a few weeks: http://www.simpel.nl/

You could also try Albert Heijn (One of the more expensive supermarkets): http://telecom.ah.nl/

Cheers,

Maybe http://www.medionmobile.nl/ is even cheaper than the one you found at Kruidvat.

Kruidvat has some interesting train ticket offers too at times (as has Blokker).

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

The Police truly are your friends.

by nyc_chef_1971

Being from NYC I was afraid to approach the police with a question. I was blitzed and needed some money. I got the nerve up, approached two police officers, asked for the location of an ATM. They were extrememly helpful. Not only did they NOT bust my chops about being ossified, but pointed us in the right direction, and as we walked away smiled, and wished us a good stay in Amsterdam. Man what a city!!!!

buying a bike, trying old...

by lutz1972

buying a bike, trying old cheese, take a cafe in the cafe de jaren, trying the brownies at gary's bagles shop, dancing in the reguliersdwaarsstraat on koningenendag, avoiding dam and leidseplein, strolling four hours through the city, shopping normal things on the Harlemerdijk ..... Let's begin a long story ...

First just remember always, originally I´m a German how moved to the Netherlands. That meens on one hand that I had little problems adapting the dutch culture nor language (speaking it within a month and loosing every accent after three month) but also on the other hand that you have to fight against a lot of prejustices and bad jokes ('where is my grandfather´s bike') .... if you are also of German nationality, don't be encouraged, these jokes will be payed back by the openess of the dutch people and is part of their humor ...

RENTING:
The most important tip in the beginning: Don't try to live in Amsterdam ! Therefore you have to have either very good connections (friends how are at least living their since 200 years) or a lot of money (somewhere about 2 MIO NLG). Otherwise you won't be able renting a flat. A girl von NY told me once that just London and NY are as expensive as A'dam in terms of renting a flat .... so be prepared living in Almere, Ijmuiden, Leiden, Hilversum, Oudekerk and being stuck in the traffic jam on the ring every morning ....

TRANSPORTATION:
You forget bringing your car with you ... leave it outside the city (best at the metro station 'Van Booshuizenstraat' as this is the last area where you don't have to pay at least around 50 NLG to park your car ... if you want to stay for a longer term, just sell it ... within a year it will be smashed three times, you will find at least five times ugly scratches from bike drives on it and will pay a fortune to park it (jsut to remember: if the police cath you without valid parking ticket you have to pay at least NLG 125 ...) Just buy a bike and use public transport if it is raining (and they tend to get really croweded than ...)

BIKES:
It's really essential to have one here ! The city is small but you need some mean of transportation to visit it ... and I swear: taking a bike your view on the city will change completely, if it is already marvellous from the ground, riding on a bike will be a unique experience ....

look around for hidden gems

by excitableone

so much for the eye to see in amsterdam, there is literally something amazing everywhere you look. a statue misplaced in a park, amazing designs on rooftops. look around you'll see a lot. i saw something new everyday i walked past the rijksmuseum which was nearly everyday. this musuem's architecture is so amazing and breathtaking!

"Window Shopping" - Along the dark alleys.

by A2002

I will describe what I know about the "window shopping". I only went there once, and will not go there at night anymore.
I saw leaflets by the police regarding the safety and some information while at the red-light district. It seems to me there's a standard flat rate charged by the prostitutes for a job done. And there are regulations about their "career" and they pay taxes.
Along the streets, you can see many many windows with chairs or beds, with different types of lighting and decorations and of course a curtain, and even "Windows for rent".
I think it works like this: The woman will stand or dance or sit at the window in not much clothings, displaying their charm to those lonely men. When there's a man interested, she will open her usually locked doors and negotiate the rate. With an agreed rate, she allows the interested man in and close the curtain... Then after that, whatever you can imagine... I dunno... But after you see a man coming out from the door, seconds later, the window will be opened again for business...
