Amsterdam to Paris - Car Rental Cost for 2 days 1 night ?

by karprasad

Hi,

I plan to rent a car (along with a driver) from Amsterdam to Paris for 2 days and one night (24th July departure and 25th evening arrival in Amsterdam), we would need to know where can we get some cheap but good cars for rent, the driver should be cooperative and we would need the car for entire two days, how much could that cost all in all approximately, we are 5 adults (ofcourse plus the driver).

It would be helpful if you can give some pointers.

Regards
KPrasad

A car and driver for two entire days plus overnight and such a distance will cost an arm and a leg and your first-born. Besides, with five adults plus driver you cannot use a normal car, you need a van. You must be rich... Sorry but this is far above the budget and travel style of most of us here.

Have you considered taking the train?

There are more reasons why you should not take a car:

- even with a normal train, travel time will be shorter
- you will not encounter any traffic jams
- with a high speed train, you can be there in just over 3 hours
- Paris is not a city for driving (you can, but again you'll lose valuable time sitting in traffic jams and waiting for lights, not to speak of Parisian drivers being less 'calm' than in the northern countries)
- not to mention parking fees (though a lesser problem if you're spending a fortune on a driver and car already)

Most important:
- Paris is a city to explore on foot and much use of the metro that takes you everywhere.
- If you do want to explore by car, you could as well take a taxi in Paris and ask the driver to drive you around for as long as you want and can afford.

Finally, one of the websites to book train tickets:

Student chauffeurs offer their services and you can ask for a quotation (offerte) here:

http://www.studentenchauffeurs.nl/Contact/Contact/Offerteaanvragen.aspx

Most of the form is pretty straightforward.
In the field "Omschrijving opdracht" you can fill out a description of your requirements, dates, etc. Filling it out in English should be no problem.

You could also phone them: 088 - 233 33 33 (country number: 00 31)

If you do fill it out and receive a quotation, we'd be most interested to know the outcome!

Ok thanks! for all your comments..and guidelines, how much do you think one needs to spend on a paris trip (2days over the weekend) from amsterdam if he or she is taking a train, per head what could be the all in all expenses (like a decent hotel stay overnight and a two and fro ticket plus a few bucks for travelling within Paris), an approximate estimation would do (per person).

Thanks in adv.. This community rocks! for sure..

Travel Tips for Amsterdam

Information Centers

by Robin922

These little information offices can be found through out the country. While they can offer some good services, they do differ from some of their counter parts in other countries. They can/will give you basic verbal information for free, and sell passes and local maps as well as other basic written information material.

This system appears to have be redesigned several years ago, and now must finically support its self.

The one shown is just outside of Central Station, and one of the busiest ones I’ve seen. With long lines being common, I would suggest trying to use an alternate system for simple information. Many hotels have free maps and along with written information, and a person on staff to answer basic questions. This can be a much more efficient method.

However I have found that it can serve some other unique purposes. First it makes a great meeting place, since it’s easy to find. It also has a nice little internet café attached to it. The computers are a little old and funky, but do work. Coffee is good too. There is also a small restaurant, however I haven’t tried it.

Well, one has to take one of...

Well, one has to take one of the ubiquitous canal cruises (they were about 6 Euros). They last about an hour and they give you a feel for the city. Quite relaxing too. Everybody spoke English and I found the Dutch to be (in general) polite and pleasant. I didn't even try to speak the local lingo.

Lean to the Left, Lean to the Right...

by JetlagCity

Be sure to take a good look at how much the houses and buildings in Amsterdam lean. Lots of them are either leaning forward, like the ones in this picture, or to one side or the other to a significant degree. I just couldn't seem to get over it, and was constantly stopping and exclaiming over it.

map of modern Amsterdam

by tompt

The map of the modern Amsterdam is in the center just like it was centuries ago.
The city was started at a dam in the river Amstel. And every time it wanted to get bigger a new canal was dug at the outside. And you still seee the canals in a round patern. The semi circles getting bigger and bigger.

Amsterdam Conservatory - 2008

by yooperprof

Amsterdam's waterfront has witnessed some dramatic and exciting new construction in recent years. A very new addition to the burgeoning area to the east of the Centraal Station is the brand-spanking new Amsterdam Conservatory - the Conservatorium van Amsterdam - which in April 2008 opened its new building on Oosterdokskade.

The architect, contemporary Dutchman Frits von Dongen, employs a Japanese aesthetic here: note how the hallways are on the exterior of the building, while the classrooms, practice rooms and performing spaces are on the interior.

Underground parking and access is a nice touch, too.
