Getting around

You don't really need a car to get around in Holland.

Holland is a small country and public transport will take you almost anywhere you want to go.

Consider buying a rail card; it really is worth the investment. Holland has a dense railway network that offers frequent service and is the quickest way to travel between city centres.

Bikes are everywhere

The bicycle is the cheapest and easiest way to get around, especially if you live in a city. There are special cycling lanes on almost every road and other road users are used to cyclists.

Most Dutch people, regardless of their profession or status, have a bicycle. Buy a second-hand bike rather than a new one to save money. But also be sure to buy at least one strong lock!
