  3. How to reach Amsterdam from India?

    The only way to travel from India to Amsterdam is by flight. There are daily, non-stop flights that depart for Amsterdam from the airports in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Apart from these three cities, you can also book a flight to Amsterdam from other cities in India including Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Marmagao and Thiruvananthapuram.

    All these flights are connected directly or indirectly to Amsterdam’s Schiphol International Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in Europe. Several major international airlines have flights landing and taking off from this airport. The journey from India to Amsterdam takes approximately 9 hours.
  4. Do I need a VISA for Amsterdam?

    Yes, Indian nationals travelling to Amsterdam need to obtain a Schengen VISA along with their passports in order to travel to Amsterdam, which lies in the Schengen Zone of Europe. 
  5. Can I get a VISA on arrival in Amsterdam?

    There is no provision to get a VISA on arrival in Amsterdam. It usually takes around 15-30 days to process an application for a Schengen VISA that can allow you to travel to Amsterdam seamlessly. 
  6. How much time does it take to get a VISA to Amsterdam?

    It is recommended that you get your visa formalities done at least 2-3 months prior to your trip to Amsterdam, to avoid any inconvenience.
  7. What is the best time to visit Amsterdam?

    The best time to visit Amsterdam is between September and November, which is the autumn season in the city. Although people can travel to Amsterdam throughout the year, there are pros and cons of each season. 

    - Spring: Spring (March to May) is one of the most popular seasons in Amsterdams, where a lot of people come to check out the beautiful tulips in bloom, that the Netherlands is famous for. The weather is very pleasant with an average temperature of 9 degrees – 17 degrees Celsius. However, this is also the start of the tourist season, which means it can get quite crowded during this time.

    - Summer: The summers (June to August) is the peak of the tourist season, and possibly the best time to enjoy its notorious nightlife. The temperatures remain at an average 19 degrees Celsius. This is also the time when the beaches of Amsterdam are crowded with tourists looking to enjoy the bright sunlight.

    - Autumn: The best time to sign up for your Amsterdam Tours is during the autumn season (September to early November) when the summer crowds have left, and the weather is still pleasant enough to be able to tour without feeling uncomfortable. The temperature stays between 11-18 degrees Celsius and you might also experience a little rainfall occasionally. 

    - Winter: Winters in Amsterdam (November to March) are very cold, with average daily temperatures staying at 4 degrees Celsius during the day. While the museums, restaurants, cafes and clubs are still populated by tourists and locals, touring the rest of the city, especially the canals, becomes quite impossible, because of the cold and strong winds.
  8. What is the ideal duration to explore Amsterdam?

    3 days is a good enough window to explore all the famous tourist attractions in Amsterdam, including a day trip to the outskirts as well. Well-curated Amsterdam Packages will take you around all the important places in the city if you are here for 3 days. However, if you have some time on your hands, 4-5 days would be ideal to get a unique perspective of the city’s history and culture.
  9. How much does Amsterdam trip cost?

    Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but it is by no means a cheap destination. But the budget also depends on factors like the time of year, your travel style, where you’re travelling from, which places you plan to visit, etc. Expect to spend around 127 euros per day on your Amsterdam tours.

    A weeklong trip to Amsterdam might cost you somewhere around 850-890 euros per head, and about 1780 euros for two. You can expect to spend anywhere around 30 euros on food per day if you’re eating out in restaurants. If your hotel or hostel provides a complimentary breakfast and you prefer street food, expect to spend much lower. Taxis are very expensive here, so we recommend opting for public transport like the tram or a bus, for which you can get a Single Day Transit Pass at 2,60 euros per day!  

    Travelling to Amsterdam may be cheaper for you if you travel in groups. Expect your expenses to dip even if you’re staying for a longer period of time, i.e. if slow travel is your thing. Do a thorough study of the various Amsterdam Tour Packages first.
  10. How much does it cost to visit Amsterdam from India?

    A weeklong trip to Amsterdam should cost you anywhere between INR 1,50,000 to 2,00,000, including airfare. Explore the numerous Amsterdam Holiday Packages before taking a call.
  11. Is Amsterdam cheap to visit?

    Amsterdam, like many other European cities, is not a cheap travel destination. The airfare alone is enough to burn a hole in your pocket. But there are some tips that can help you make your Amsterdam Tours more affordable-

    Book your flight tickets well in advance to make sure you get good prices 
    If travelling solo, prefer staying in hostels over hotels. Besides being a budget-friendly option, this also puts you in touch with other travellers like yourself. You can share the cost of transportation with them, and so on. 
    Get a daily travel pass for the city. 
    Eat out on the streets instead of fancy restaurants.
  12. How Safe Is Amsterdam?

    Amsterdam is a great travel destination, for both backpackers and families alike. Despite the two things that Amsterdam has quite a reputation for - weed and sex - it is a perfectly safe travel destination, provided you are a little careful on some fronts. While the city is reasonably safe to explore, you want to stick to well-lit areas where there are enough people, especially at night. You might also want to avoid the Red Light District at night. Being a popular tourist spot, there have been cases of pickpocketing in Amsterdam, especially in the summer.

    Amsterdam is quite safe for female solo travellers, too, although it cannot hurt to be more cautious about things. Avoid streets that are not well lit, or don’t have many people around. Some areas to watch out for are Slotermeer in the western reaches of the city, and certain south-eastern areas, where poverty has been rampant. But apart from the above, you have nothing to worry about. Amsterdam is a perfectly safe and traveller-friendly destination. You’re in safe hands with our Amsterdam Tour Packages.
  13. What should I avoid in Amsterdam?

    Avoid buying cannabis on the street.

    It is illegal to take pictures of the women in the windows of the Red Light District. 

    Amsterdam is home to countless coffee shops, but not all of these are cafés. If you have a hankering for coffee, you want to look for a local sidewalk cafe. These other “coffee shops” serve dishes with something else - cannabis. So if you’re craving some caffeine and see a window sporting a green and white licence sticker, that’s most likely not the kind of café you want. If you want to indulge in the herb, these are the ones to approach. 

    While soft drugs like cannabis are tolerated in Amsterdam, consumption of tobacco, in any form, remains illegal. Even in joints. 

    Do not carry over 5 grams of cannabis. 

    Hard drugs are illegal in Amsterdam. 

    Back to the basics - Don’t accept cookies (or anything else) from strangers. It may be a clever ruse to rob you of your valued belongings. 

    Please do not urinate or defecate in the canals. 

    Avoid using cars. Amsterdam is more of a pedestrian-friendly and bicycle-friendly city. Not only is this a more sustainable option, but also saves you the guilt over having an extra piece of cake! Make the most of your Amsterdam tours by hiring a bike to explore the city. 
  14. How is Amsterdam weather?

    As is typical to the northern regions of Europe, Amsterdam experiences a mild climate. Amsterdam has gentle and warm summers, whereas winters see a considerable drop in temperature, with frequent bouts of rain and snow. Though most people tend to travel to Amsterdam in the spring/summer season, depending on what your preference is, you can pick any month of your choice. There are countless Amsterdam Tour Packages available throughout the year
  15. What's the currency of Amsterdam?

    The Euro is the official currency of The Netherlands, including Amsterdam. Get your currency exchanged for the Dutch Euro well in advance to your departure. The current exchange rate is INR 78.13 for 1 Dutch euro. Map out an estimate of your expenses in INR before you book your Amsterdam packages.
  16. What languages are spoken in Amsterdam?

    Dutch is the official language of The Netherlands and is widely spoken in Amsterdam. Although, you can easily get by in Amsterdam without knowing Dutch, as most of the natives are well-versed in English, considering it is an international travel hotspot. So don’t worry if you don’t know a word of Dutch. You’ll be just fine with English. 
  17. What are the essential items that one must pack while travelling to Amsterdam?

    What you will carry on your trip to Amsterdam will depend majorly on the season you’re travelling in. Amsterdam is a pleasant enough place to visit year-round, but the winters will be a lot colder than summers. Also, regardless of the month of your visit, you can expect light rainfall.

    For a spring/summer trip:
    A sturdy backpack instead of a suitcase
    Raincoat
    Comfortable shoes (considering you’ll be doing a lot of walking)
    Travel adapter
    Mosquito repellent 
    Offline maps of the city
    Official ID
    Enough cash (Visa & MasterCard don’t work here as widely as Maestro cards do)

    Add these for winters:
    Sweater/pullover 
    Down-feather jacket 
    Boots 
    Gloves

Despite its reputation, it is a quite safe and friendly place to visit, although there are a few dos and don’ts that you need to be aware of before you visit.

    Do not take photos of women here. Not only is it quite offensive, but also prohibited. If you’re caught photographing them, your phone / camera will be confiscated. Beware of pickpocketing. If you can, travel in a group rather than going solo. Be careful about what you buy, and who you buy it from. Drinking and smoking are forbidden in the coffee shops, and so are hard drugs. All in all, keep your wits about you and you’ll have nothing to worry about.
