We used the travel card to get from the airport to where we were staying and to and from Amsterdam each day. Good value for money and very easy to use.

2 broken machines at schipol airport, so had to queue to collect anyway 😔

It made getting around very easy and was good value for money too!

It’s really convenient! Its easy to get the ticket the airport.

I liked the flexibility of it and how easy it was to use.
