    Train!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since my dad and I are rather slwo in the mornings, it was decided we were to travel to Amsterdam airport the day before.
    I got a special card that gives me discount on train fare so it wasn t too big an investment.

    We had a good time and there were no major problems during the time we were in the train.

    Take the train

    by Imaniac Written Jan 2, 2004

    If you wanna go to Schiphol airport the easiest way of doing so is by going by train. The train will take you to the heart of Schiphol, so you don't need to take a bus or a taxi afterwards. Most trains come from the south or the west. For those directions you have to change trains in Duivendrecht Station (Between Amsterdam and Utrecht).

    Cheap busses and expensive taxis

    by Pavlik_NL Written Aug 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To those destinations that are not connected by train, one could choose to go to by bus. They are waiting for the passengers at the central square in front of Schiphol Plaza. Busses are comfortable and have many stops. Big chance it brings you very close to your point of intrest. Okay, they are not that fast, but ... who needs fast on a holiday!
    Taxis are available on the same place, however keep in mind that a taxi is terrible expensive in The Netherlands. The drivers are polite and know the littlest street or alley in a large range, but ... the meter is running!

    Buying traintickets to any direction

    by Pavlik_NL Written Aug 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Schiphol Plaza there are two ways in getting a trainticket. The windows at the large counters of the NS (watch for the blue-yellow colours surrounding it). Here you will be helped personally (doesn't cost anything more) and this is the best way if you need extra information.
    The other fast way is the ticketing-machines that are on the central square (see picture). In these you can find postalcodes of all destinations in The Netherlands and order a one way (enkele reis) or to-from (retour). The machines take cash as well as various pin- and credit-cards.

    Platforms underneath the airport

    by Pavlik_NL Written Aug 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the line Amsterdam to The Hague, the tracks disappear underground near Schiphol and underneath the airport the platforms are waiting for passangers that wants to travel from the airport to their main destinations somewhere in The Netherlands (or even further in Europe).
    The platforms can be reached by the automatic stairs going down the central part of the airport, called "Schiphol Plaza". Follow the signs with a train and saying "naar de sporen / to the platforms". On top of the stairs you will see flipboards informing you about the next train leaving from the platform beneath it.
    Through the URL you will find out the trainconnections of the Dutch Railways (NS = Nederlandse Spoorwegen).
    How to get tickets? See my next general tip!

    Rental car companies are centered at the Schiphol, just past the Train Station. You leave from the short term parking building.
    Schiphol lies at the A4 highway connecting Amsterdam and The Hague.

    Hello Pieter Jan,

    I found your last post on where to park at Schiphol and I have to thank you. I just came from France from amazing holidays.
    Before flying I didnt know if I should take the train with my children and wife plus the luggage, taking a taxi or park my car at the Airport. Of course parking the car for 7 days at the Schiphol parking is very expensive but then I started looking at the companies you posted and there are good prices.
    In the and I found 7 days 35 euros parking in Mercure hotel close to the airport in the last company you posted, however is not moypark but mobypark. After I park my car they took me in the shuttle for free to the airport.
    I must admit it was very convenient the price and the services . by train its a hassle with my kids and taxi was around 120 euros go and back. So the best option I found was this.

    If it helps this is the link to airport: mobypark.com/en/city/Amsterd...


    I hope is helpful for the rest of travelers.
