When you have a train ticket this is a commitment by the railways to get you to your destination. In your case your ticket is for Brussels to Den Haag so to Den haag the railways must get you. But it doesn’t have to be with the trains you originally intended to use. The fact that you change in Breda tells me you have a ticket for the IC train. That ticket ...

Breda is already in the Netherlands and the most common method for this kind of tight connections is that one train comes in, stops on one side of a platform, then the other train comes in on the other side of the same platform, stays for a few minutes, so every body gets out and in, last in train leaves first, first train in leaves last. So while the ...

No, you can use it to travel to countries outside the Netherlands, but not to travel to your country of origin. https://www.arnhem.nl/Inwoners/english/Identification/Refugee_passport If you have a compelling reason for wanting to do this, you should consult an Immigration lawyer with experience in refugee law in the Netherlands before you attempt to travel.

It would depend on where exactly you need to be in those places. But if staying in a hotel near Amsterdam Central Station is a must, it would probably make sense to use public transport. The public transport planner for The Netherlands is called 9292. There is a direct train to Hoofddorp, it's a 22 minute ride and costs € 5.30 per person, one way. And you ...

It seems they will come back, but when and where is still unknown. From local news site AT5 (December 3rd): Ze worden opgeknapt en daarna zullen ze rondreizen door de stad. Welke plekken ze zullen aandoen, is nog niet bekend. DeepL Translate: They will be restored and then they will travel around the city. The places they will visit are not yet known. ...

It is doable, but quite tight, especially if you have a lot of luggage. The train from Brussels will usually arrive in Breda on track 5 and the train to Den Haag will depart from track 7, which is a different platform. You will either have to take the stairs or the elevator down to a connecting corridor and then up again to reach the correct platform. ...

In NL, the process of disputing your visa refusal is called "objecting" to the decision. If you feel your application was not processed correctly, you can provide an objection in writing. The visa refusal letter that you receive has instructions on how to submit your objection and includes the mailing address where you should mail it to. Your objection ...

However, a new requirement has been added to this list in recent times and that is documentary evidence that you have sufficient reasons to return to your country. There is no such recent change to the entry conditions in the Schengen Borders Code. The legal requirement is, exactly as it was in 2017, that you "justify the purpose and conditions of the ...

However, these plans span at least one month, and I am not sure if it would be problematic to have overlapping insurance plans. In my experience, this is not a problem. It just means that, if you do need to make a claim, you should disclose all your applicable policies to each insurer so that they can sort out between themselves who's covering what; the ...

Is this something common? Or should I skip and look somewhere else? Bank transfer is the normal way of transferring money in the Netherlands. If there are any red flags in this situation, that is not among them.

I am not even sure travelling with the NS would count for the P+R ticket (edit: your link says it does, but not for the full amount), even if you did it with your own (permanent) OV chipkaart. Fortunately, there's a good alternative which certainly works: purchase a P+R GVB return ticket and take Metro 51 to Central Station (or any other destination in the ...

In general it's best to talk in terms of "Bands" rather than "Frequencies", as sometimes carriers will use multiple frequencies together to form a single band. The device you're referring to - presuming it is the EU model - supports the following bands : 3G - Bands 1, 2, 5 and 8 4G LTE - Bands 1, 3, 7, 8, 20, 28, 38, 40 and 41 T-Mobile in the US uses ...

There's a dedicated spot for bicycles at the entrance of the parking lot. During my last visit (Spring 2017, coincidentally just after the pandas arrived), it was more or less guarded, and there's a lot of traffic during the opening hours anyway, so I'd say your bikes are safe. Here is a picture of it on Google Street View. Of course, remember to bring your ...

According to this site of the public transport company in the Hague, there are three kinds of machines to charge your OV chip card. Two of them work with cash, bank cards (debit cards from banks in the Netherlands although others may work) and credit cards (which should accept most or all cards.) The third kind only works with bank cards, which is likely the ...

According to the I Amsterdam characters page of the I Amsterdam website, the characters are traveling around: Schiphol (airport) Sloterplas in Amsterdam West (free running track, hard to make a good picture) One set travelling around through events/festivals.

I entered the route in 'de Lijn', the bus search site for the Dutch speaking part of Belgium, which has an English option. The result is an hourly bus to the Brugge area. I used Breskens Veerhaven, the ferry port, as departure stop and used Brugge station as arrival location. If you define your location more precise to where you want to be, you get a more ...

The rates for licensed taxi's are regulated in the Netherlands. The regulation only sets an upper limit for metered rides, taxis are of course allowed to set lower rates and frequently you are charged (much) less for both metered trips as well as flat rate rides. Please note that the regulation allows for flat rates that may exceed those limits too. Flat ...

The page you linked to mentions AKOs at Schiphol Airport AKO is a chain of book stores, and this page on the official Airport website lists where they are, including maps: Plaza (AKO News and media), open 6am - 10pm Plaza (AKO kiosk), open 24/7 Plaza (AKO Books and travel), open 7am - 10pm

Dutch Customs has a web portal in English with a description of what is and isn't allowed to be brought in by travelers arriving from outside of the EU here with the short recommendation: What cannot be imported? Not all products can simply be brought in. Counterfeit articles, for example, or €10,000 or more, food, and animals and plants. Followed ...

Is it possible to travel to the Netherlands without the Schengen visa, my non-EU wife and myself UK/EU citizen? It's just for a 3 day trip. Regardless of the length of the trip, it is only possible if your wife has a "residence card of a family member of an EU citizen." She will not normally have this unless you live in some EU country other than the UK, ...

Yes. The D visa allows you travel through any Schengen state on the way to your destination, and also to visit them as if you had a multiple-entry C visa with the same validity period. That means you can spend up to 90 out of every 180 days in Schengen states other than the one which gave you a D visa, with the usual restrictions for a short-stay visa (no ...

Of course there is no problem specially if they already been to other countries in Europe. It’s first entry which is important but then you can travel anywhere People in Tenerife are very nice

Being Dutch and being familiar with the city of Amsterdam I might be able to answer your question: Not only some, but almost all houses (everywhere) in Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands offer non-cash payment possibilities as cash is slowly disappearing from the Dutch payment system. Having said that, the Red-light district is one of the most ...

The already provided answer is correct about wild camping in the Netherlands and in Belgium. However, when it comes to wild camping in the United Kingdom: It is legal in Scotland In England and in Wales you will need permission from the landowner in all areas except for Devon and Dartmoor, there it is also legal. In certain National Parks (like Lake ...

You should ask who issued the refugee passport. In general you cannot return in your origin country (as the answer of @traveller, and link). There are very few exceptional cases, which are discussed before you take the travel, to issuing authority. Do no count about it.

It is annoying and cumbersome that there isn't a way to access this data directly. However, I found a workaround that works well enough in most situations: On the flixbus homepage, head to the "Current Route Information" (currently under menu point "Service"). There you can either type in your departure stop and time or your destination and arrival time. ...

You can find the information and buy the tickets online nl B, most likely you can buy part of your tickets, maybe all of them, also on the day at the station in the airport. Buying on the day you can run into extra costs. There are tickets available to some places in Belgium and I can not check whether Neerpelt is one of them. If you do not manage to get ...
