There is a direct train, and it is easy to find from the airport. You don't have to go outside. According to http://www.ns.nl/reisplanner-v2/index.shtml the one way trip will cost you €11.60. And you have two options per hour Travelling by taxi would be significantly more expensive if you take a taxi directly from the airport. I can't predict the exact ...

The fastest way (41 min from station to station, half-hourly on weekdays) is the IC Direct (high-speed train), but you need to buy an additional ticket on top of your regular ticket (€16.80 = 14.50 + 2.30). The normal train connection (60–70 min, 2 trains per half-hour) would cost you less (€14.50). You can look up times and prices and buy tickets on the NS ...

A plane is certainly not the answer, since the two airports (AMS and RTM) are only 45 km apart. I checked Kayak anyway; there are no nonstop flights. Air France will fly you AMS-RTM via London (LCY) for EUR 242 and it takes 3 hours including the layover. So that is neither faster nor cheaper than a train, not by a long shot!

The best option would be if you could get a ride from someone at the conference, but as you mention a few drinks after I'm not sure if there will be someone willing to drive. Other options to get from the Maassilo to the Europoort P&O ferry terminal are quite limited. The only regular public transport that goes directly where you want to go is the bus ...

As Bernhard managed to find, there's information on public transport on the airport's website (click the British flag in the top bar if it comes up in Dutch). It's actually even easier than the website makes out! In the baggage hall, there's a sign up explaining about the two bus options, and with directions to the bus stops. When you exit the terminal, ...

The website of Rotterdam-The Hague airport is pretty clear. According to the timetable, bus 33 is leaving every 20 minutes from the airport, to bring you to the central station in just over 20 minutes. According to the most general Dutch website on public transport, you'll pay €1.66 for a one-way trip if you use the OV-card. The public transport section of ...

I don't know whether there are any taxi companies dedicated to operating in the Europoort area, but based on the location of the Pistoolhaven, the closest town is Brielle. It appears that there are three taxi companies there. Source: http://www.telefoonboek.nl/zoeken/taxi/brielle/ The website includes phone numbers (telefoonnummer) I have no experience ...

Generally speaking, you can go to http://9292.nl/ for any itinerary with public transports in the Netherlands. One useful trick is to enter the postal code (3198 LG according to the P&O website) as point of departure or destination. In the Netherlands, a postal code corresponds to a specific street (and not a town or part of a town), so you can use it to ...

Unless paying by card (for which there are machines, with English as an option, scattered all round the concourse and even in the baggage collection area) there is a Euro 0.50 surcharge for a train fare bought at the counter (but no queues!) The platforms are below the concourse area and tickets are not available at that lower level. The trains are clean, ...

There are at least a couple of options for private tours. It implies that you may be the only ones, potentially, but at least you'd have a leader to show you around, and if you have others they could come too. Firstly, there's the Rotterdam Walking Tour: Discover the secrets of Rotterdam with a knowledgeable local guide (3hrs walk) And more ...
