comment What is a reliable and safe method of obtaining cash in Madagascar?
Maestro is the de facto standard debit card in NL and a Visa debit card is hard to come by. Meanwhile, in Madagascar it seems Visa is the default accepted card (credit and debit?!), though Mastercard (credit) seems to be accepted by some banks nowadays. Charges for cash withdrawal with debit cards are usually much lower than for credit cards, so it is relevant which debit cards are accepted. So perhaps it is worthwhile getting Visa cards (credit and/or debit). Might it be worthwhile to get input from recent travellers, rather than just the bank website?

comment Can I use the OV-chipkaart to get from Schiphol to the center by train?
And make sure you have the direct train to Amsterdam Central, and not one of the trains to another Amsterdam station which may not stop at Amsterdam Central. This is a frequent source of confusion.
