Using the trains at the airport you can get to Amsterdam Central Station, Amsterdam Zuid (Trade Center) and Rai (Conference Center) in about 25 minutes. You can buy a ticket from the kiosks at the train station. Or you can buy an OV-chipkaart, which is a smartcard for fare payment that is used for public transportation methods throughout the entire city.

Rental Cars

If you are going to use a car during your trip in Amsterdam we recommend renting one. You can rent whatever type of vehicle you want from the car rental agencies located at the airport. There are many car rental agencies located at the airport, such as Alamo, AVIS, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Sixt.

You can purchase one of these cards at the station, with tram drivers, kiosks, or tourist offices. Every time you use the OV card you have to swipe as you enter and exit; if you don’t swipe your card as you exit it loses its validity. The I amsterdam City Card provides unlimited access to public transportation systems in the city for 1, 2, 3 or 4 days as well as free or discounted entry to museums and other attractions.

Cyclists always have the right of way so if you’re driving make sure to pay attention to these rules. You can rent a bike for daily use, weekly use, or for a specific length of time.

Tram

While there is a metro network in Amsterdam it is generally used for transportation to and from locations outside of the city. Since there is a parking problem in the city and because parking is very expensive biking or taking the tram are more preferable modes of transportation.
