I would like to know the CHEAPEST way to go from Amsterdam to Paris. But it don't need to be straight, only cheap.

For example, I have no problem to make a tour from Amsterdam until reach Paris.

    I would think ...Walk... now that the smart-assed answer is out of the way, how long do you intend to take? – CGCampbell Feb 4 '15 at 16:05
  • hahahaha Walking, that's sounds a fitness way. It don't "NEED" to be straight, but I'm just looking for the best option from A-B. I'll be on vacation for 20 days in Europe and I only know that I'll arrive in Amsterdam, the rest I can plan the way that get cheaper. – Max Ferreira Feb 4 '15 at 16:13

    Walking has the downside of being very slow, but you could mitigate this drawback for instance if you ran, it would still be as cheap as walking, but faster. – aestrivex Feb 4 '15 at 19:30

    Cycling is done quite often and it is only 500km, takes 3 to 10 days, depending on your condition, preferences and the weather. – Willeke Jul 27 '15 at 18:29

The cheapest way to travel from Amsterdam to Paris is by hitch-hiking.

Failing that, early-booked buses are cheapest. For example, if I search now for a Eurolines bus on a weekday late May, I find tickets as cheap as 9€. You want to search for Promo tickets, indicated in dark red in the fare calendar.

There are probably other bus companies, but probably it won't get much cheaper than that.

  • I loved that option and It have a lot of options (cities to met), really good. – Max Ferreira Feb 4 '15 at 16:33

    Now I'll look if I can find a company like this one from Paris > Zurich, or Paris > another good place to met. Thank you very much. – Max Ferreira Feb 4 '15 at 16:33

    @MaxFerreira One way to find what bus companies operate is to search for an itinerary at www.rome2rio.com, then look for possibly multiple bus options listed on the left. – gerrit Feb 4 '15 at 16:36

    @MaxFerreira you can also check out the project I'm working on for this route and others busbud.com/en/bus-schedules/Amsterdam,NorthHolland,Netherlands/… we actually have this trip from 80% cheaper (€2). – Carl Feb 4 '15 at 16:44

    @pnuts Good point, we'll investigate why that's not showing the best price. – Carl Feb 4 '15 at 18:45
