Travelling in the Netherlands

Post Posted: Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:33 pm

I moved to the Netherlands about 2 years ago and I have to say it is an awesome country that has surpassed my expectations in many ways.

Compared to my home country it is not too expensive in most cases but one thing that I continuously find expensive is travel.

I tend to have to travel about 2 hours by train every other day to get to work, and it adds up. I recently found great websites like offersonline.nl/ and goedkoop-treinkaartje.nl that offer day tickets for the trein for about 19 euros which is a huge help. But I am wondering is it more economical to invest in a car and drive. Ive heard driving can be just as exepensive with parking etc.

Just want to know how true that statement is.

Looking to get your opinions.

Thanks!
Regards,
-RoamingExpat
