Why not travel as the locals do and opt to rent a bike in Amsterdam? Bike shops are common and offer a cheap transport option.
Alternatively, Amsterdam is one of the most walkable cities in the world – getting to all of the tourist attractions on foot is a breeze. Public transportation is also efficient and reliable throughout the city and never far from the top places to visit if walking is not your forte.
Types of transport: GVB (Public Transport Services of Amsterdam) services Amsterdam by train, tram, metro, bus and ferry.
Paying for transport: One-hour tickets can be purchased from tram or bus drivers. GVB offers single- to seven-day passes that start at €7.50. They are valid on trams, buses and the metro. Passes can be bought throughout the city at GVB ticket and info spots, service points and metro stations. The OV-chipkaart can also be purchased but is more suitable for longer periods. Ferries are free to use.
Getting to and from the airport: The airport train will take you directly to Amsterdam Central Station which is located in the city centre. They leave every 10–15 minutes and the journey is 15–20 minutes. Buses depart from outside the main arrivals entrance and leave every 30 minutes. Take the Amsterdam Airport Express, line 197 to the city centre. It departs every 15 minutes.

Best apps for getting around: The GVB app is the official app for Amsterdam public transport. It gives travel advice based on where you are and where you want to go.
Taxi: Taxis can’t be hailed at every spot on the road. It is best to find one at a fixed taxi rank. Taxis can be booked in advance online or over the phone.
Uber: Uber is available in Amsterdam and costs €24–60 from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to the city centre.
Forget the hassle of getting to and from the airport by booking a shared or private transfer straight to your the doorstep of your accommodation.
Renting a car in Amsterdam is not recommended as streets are narrow and parking is expensive and limited.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
