Schiphol airport to Amsterdam Central

Recommended Posts

We will be arriving at Schiphol August 1 around 3:30 p.m. (1530).  We are interested in a taxi to take us to our hotel.  Does anyone have a recommendation on which taxi service to take?  We were there two years ago and waited over an hour for a pickup on a transfer service which accommodated persons going to many different hotels.  This time there are three of us and we are interested in a taxi for just us.

Check those options: https://www.schiphol.nl/en/page/by-taxi-to-and-from-schiphol/

or

Also Uber is available, but check where they will pick you up.

All this of course apart from the regular cabs or train.

I think the hotel shuttle is what the OP referred to in their original post; that waits until it is full and then takes people to whatever hotel they want.

Yes probably. But of course  there are also regulars cabs (check that it are the official ones outside, not those offering their serice in the terminals!).  https://schiphol-taxiamsterdamairport.nl/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwgezoBRDNARIsAGzEfe6M_ZaVY-9U_MBSSGNwkaNhdQyif_7zdAJa1uQoS_rjWpqw8eUTrxYaAsv4EALw_wcB

Thanks for your help.  I also discovered airportstaxitransfers.com.  It looks good, have you heard anything about it?

That appears to be some sort of broker site. I would always prefer to book directly with the operator who is going to provide my transfer rather than some website middle-man.

Ine, is there an English translation for either of those sites?  Unfortunately I do not understand Dutch.  Thanks

If you goi to the link of TCA, you will find the option for english at the top of the page.

Indeed I cannot find an english page for the 1st link, maybe try google tranlatre? Or check the link I gave in an earlier posting  https://www.schiphol.nl/en/page/by-taxi-to-and-from-schiphol/

We just came back from Amsterdam. There are plenty of cabs in the taxi rank outside the arrivals hall, including typically 7 passenger Mercedes vans. Our fare from Schiphol to the area near NEMO was around €60. If you go the link Ine provided in her last post, there's an option for a "Business Taxi" which can be prebooked. I just did a dummy booking for 3 people with bags and it's showing €50 to the Marriott near the Museumplein. Either way, that's about $25/person.

 

Honestly, I'm not a fan of flying out of Schiphol, but arriving, getting into a cab, and getting downtown is extremely easy. If you can manage your bags, the train to Centraal is likewise easy. There are places (LHR) where I'd book a car as my first option, but Schiphol isn't one of them. If you're spending the night in Amsterdam on your return, many hotels have flat rate deals with taxis for €45 back to Schiphol.
