Getting Around Town the Dutch Way

Travelling the Lowlands is so easy to do. The country boasts one of the best public transport networks in Europe; not to mention the modern roads and bicycle paths connecting virtually every point on the map. You can easily get around by boarding a train, metro, bus, tram, or hopping on a rental scooter or bike. Or easily rent a car at our rental provider partner. So, which do you choose?

Travel social with public transport

If you are keen on sustainability, you might want to take advantage of the efficient public transport system. You can easily and reliably travel almost everywhere. Well, besides maybe some small, forgotten villages… for that, you might need a car. You can purchase your OV chipcard at major train stations, Albert Heijn (the local monopoly supermarket), or online here. Good to know - in some cases you can use OVpay, which means that it is possible to travel by public transport by checking in and out using your Smartphone, Debit Card or Credit Card! Plan out your route using the travel app 9292 and… you’re off!

Jump on a bicycle or scooter

Want to get the full Dutch experience? Why not rent a bike and travel like a local? Get the most out of the city views while getting your daily workout. The benefit of cycling is that you can pull over literally wherever you please and explore! The country is lined with bicycle paths, also connecting to the outskirts and intercity. So, you can rent an omafiets (just type bike rental Amsterdam in Google) and travel virtually anywhere. If you prefer getting around faster, why not rent a scooter at Felyx or Check? Or, if you’re feeling crazy enough – a segway. Such a fun way to get around town. They are so simple to use… you just need to download their app and follow the instructions. Easy peasy!
