Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 9,014 reviews

This ticket is definitely worth it to be mobile in and around Amsterdam. We always live in zandvoort and just a trip from there to Amsterdam would currently cost 14.75 euros, so it's really worth it. Apart from the fact that it is sometimes complicated to buy tickets in Holland. Swapping was also easy after we found the store. At the train station, if you exit on the Metro side, it's straight ahead. We were first on the wrong side But we said the most important thing is it's definitely worth it

Good thing to use in Amsterdam! We can travel whereever I want in the city and also from and to Airport. Accessible to trains, busses, metro trams and even ferry— it’s super helpful And help us enjoyed/explored Amsterdam more

Very good experience with the ticket. Could drive anywhere and redeem almost any connection. Very clear. Partly, however, strong bus failure.

For someone who is not directly based in Amsterdam is a great thing. We were also in Zandvoort with the ticket. You can really recommend it.

Such a great time, so many beautiful and vibrant colors
