Hi can you get from aiport to Amsterdam with an ov card?

Tanja November 20, 2016 - 13:21

Hi. You need to charge the OV card first. Then you can take a train to Central Station. The trains are down the stairs, near the exit. You ‘check in’ with the OV Chipcard and when you arrive at C.S check out, so the amount is taken from the card. There are many trains to Amsterdam, so make sure you get one to CENTRAL STATION. But I wouldn’t worry, cause usually they have special people to guide you to right train. There is also an information stand. It’s easy. Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip! -Tanja
