I just checked several flight options. EasyJet, if you do not need to bring luggage, starts from €32, a few months from now. That is including all taxes but excluding all extras you can avoid, like luggage and from Schiphol, so €2.10 for a bus ticket needs to be added. Not sure how much extra for the Belfast end, Belfast International. Eurolines London to ...

I don't know any other day ticket that would fit the bill but you can go from Sloterdijk station to many places in the city with the subway/metro or tramways and to Amsterdam Centraal with a bus. So the issue is one of commercial/administrative policy (trains are operated by another company), not merely the fact that Sloterdijk would be out of the GVB day ...

Sloterdijk was a village out of Amsterdam but has now been gulped up by the city and is part of it. Just like the villages around London are part of Greater London. It is within the city bus system area and on those buses you can use the travel passes for the city. And depending on where you want to be in Amsterdam, the bus might well be faster than going ...

Just did this today, by bike, from Amsterdam City Center. Go to the Flevopark on Amsterdam's impeccable bike lanes, then take the scenic bridge (Nesciobrug) and pedal for a few kms, mostly right along the river, in a park with bunnies (Diemerzeedijk / Waterkeringpad). You'll cross farms, sheep, friendly people. Muiden itself has a few nice cafes and is ...

With new bikes in the heigher end of budget you will need to order a bike before you arrive and have it prepared for you. Most bike shops will need a few days to a few weeks to order and prepare your bike, depending on the kind of bike and the speed the factory delivers. Cheaper bikes are often more readily available from shops that just stock on spec, but ...

According to their website, they only release some tickets online, so "Sold Out" doesn't actually mean you can't go, only that the tickets released online have been sold out. From the website they suggest their tickets may be bought out by scalpers: Resellers of our entrance tickets are active on the internet. They buy up our entrance tickets online, ...

Entering through France is definitely not a requirement. Even if you had planned to enter through the Netherlands from the get go, if you are staying in France the longest, getting a French visa is what you were supposed to do. Changing your plans compared to the itinerary you submitted with your application is not completely forbidden either but it does ...

If you want to collect your bags for the layover, then you will only check in for the first flight and only get the boarding pass for the first flight. But KLM will check you all the way through to your final destination and hold your bags during the layover. So the option is yours.

When you arrive in Amsterdam you will find (if still there) one ticket machine in the area where you collect your luggage. Which is very nice if you have to wait for your luggage to arrive, but not worth waiting any longer than you need for your luggage. When you leave the secure area you follow the signs for the train and you arrive in the main arrivals ...

Since you are using the Dutch transport service this often, you may consider buying an anonymous OV-chipcard (Dutch: "OV chipkaart"). Have it in with you and check-in once you are about to take the train. As indicated in its website its [current] price is €7,50. PROS: You can load a lot of credit once - say €50. This way, you will not have to buy the ...

Yes you can certainly buy them online on the Dutch Railways website. It's really just a train that happens to connect the airport, so you book it like any other train and print it at home before you go, make sure you carry an ID with the same name on the ticket
