Amsterdam Central Station to Schiphol Airport

1. If we get ourselves to the Amsterdam Central Station by 8:00 a.m. on Sat. June 9, is that enough time to get our 11:55 a.m. flight back to Canada?

2. Once in the Amsterdam Central Station, specifically how do we find the train platform to the airport? I read something about 3 tunnels and I would not want to take the wrong one.

3. Should we prebook our train ticket on line? Two seniors.

4. Is there anything confusing about activating your ticket at the card reader? Do you still activate the ticket if it is printed on line?

Thank you

Hi there,

1. Yes

2. Follow the monitors, could be 3-4 possible options.

3. Does not make much sense, if you have access to a printer you can get 2 x 1 euro discount.

4. Not at all, just tap the card reader (for a ticket from machine or counter) or hold the barcode for the glass card reader.

Exactly where are you staying in Amsterdam or arriving from as there may be better options.
