The Amsterdam Travel ticket is a paper smart card. With this ticket you will check in at the beginning and check out at the end of every trip. The ticket is valid from the first time you check in until 04:00 hours after the last valid day. With the Amsterdam Travel ticket you travel 2nd class in the train to and from Schiphol Airport to any station of Amsterdam and Amsterdam Airport Express (bus 397) and Niteliner (bus N97). The ticket is also valid on all trams, buses, metros and ferries run by GVB (Amsterdam transport company). You can recognise them by the white and blue colors.
Three versions of the Amsterdam Travel Ticket are available: 1, 2 or 3-day. The price for the 1-day ticket is 17 euros, the 2-day ticket costs 22,50 euros and the 3-day ticket is 28 euros. That amount buys you a huge amount of ease and comfort and most likely saves you money compared to individual transport tickets.
Nice to know: you will receive a handy map that explains how the card system works and shows you also all the attractions of Amsterdam!

Renting a bike in Amsterdam is straight forward and will set you back from around €10 for a day rental for a basic back-pedal single gear bike. Cheaper rates per day can be had if you rent for a longer period or rent in a group. Theft insurance is charged at around €3 per day, worth taking for peace of mind. Bikes with hand brakes and gears are a little more expensive.You will generally need to leave a form of ID, a deposit (€50-€200) or a credit card authorisation. Some rental companies mark their bikes with logos whilst others have unmarked bikes. A few companies also offer guided tours which can be a great way to discover the city/region with an experienced local guide.
The permanent exhibition takes visitors back to the forties, the period of the German occupation during World War II. A separate section tells the story of the former colony the Dutch East Indies, where the population suffered badly under the Japanese regime of terror. The exhibition covers all forms of resistance: strikes, forging of documents, helping people to go into hiding, underground newspapers, escape routes, armed resistance, espionage. You’ll see, hear en read fascinating stories about the exceptional as well as the everyday in a time of occupation in which most people were far too embroiled in day-to-day worries to even think about daring to involve themselves in any kind of resistance, and in which still others opted for collaboration.
