Trams Tips (4)

Amsterdam' s rip off transport

Beware if you want to travel by bus or trams, the system is a rip off, one has to put the pre paid tkt next to the detector each time your on and off the tram or bus , if you forget once , your tkt is invalid.
The transport organization or company whatever the entity is very clever to think that the tourist will have to pay again, but not in our case for if we ever have to return to Amsterdam again we will not even consider buying a tkt as long as the system remains.

Don't buy your tickets on the tram

Travelling through Amsterdam by tram is a very convenient way to do.
Don’t buy your tickets on the tram and pay the full price of €1,60. The day pass €7,00 is also a bad deal.
A trip ticket (strippen kaart), at €7,30 for 15 strips (most trips require two strips) menas rides cost 95 cents for most trips. This includes an hour of free transferring and everyone can share the same ticket. Buy the strip ticket at Albert Heijn grocery stores and newsstands.

Unique Suggestions Buy the stip ticket at the grocery or newsstands or train station.

Fun Alternatives buy a 24 hour card, where you have also discount at various museums.
cost €38,00

Just warning you guys: make...

Just warning you guys: make sure you pay your ticket for public transport! There are often ticket inspectors who are standing spontainiously in front of you. If you don't have one it'll cost you 30 euros!

Even worse is not to pay for your parking ticket. It can bring you a wheel clamp. And it'll cost you a lot of money and time to let it remove. Make sure you take a good look around to see signs or payingmachines. It's payed parking almost everywhere in Amsterdam.
