From Schiphol to Rotterdam with Flixbus

If you are arriving on Schiphol and planning to visit and stay in Rotterdam, then getting a ticket to Rotterdam can be pricy. There are in general no tickets from the airport to Rotterdam. But if you want to save your self a headache, we highly recommend going with the Flixbus.

Public transport chip card

When you are staying in Rotterdam for more than 7 days it might be beneficial to buy a public transport chip card (ov chipkaart) instead of day tickets. With the public transport chipcard you only pay for the distance you actually travel, with a one way ticket you pay for the whole trip.

The public transport chip card is a card that lets you travel on credit. Travelling with a public transport chip card is very handy because it allows you to travel with all the carriers including the NS (Dutch railway). Customers can buy this card in our webshop for € 7,50.  Customers can also load the card with credit before you arrive in Rotterdam.
