Holland uses the Euro. Schiphol Airport and downtown Amsterdam have plenty Currency Exchange offices, and ATMs can be found across the land.
There’s an extensive public transport system. A one-hour trip on the train (depending on the route), generally costs about n12 (R170). Within Amsterdam, the GVB controls the trains, trams, buses, metros and ferries. Visitors can buy onehour tickets, (multi) day-passes, and payas-you-go passes. These are available from the conductor, at GVB vending machines at stations, or at many newsstands and supermarkets. Day passes start at n7.50 (R100). A great way to save is by getting the Amsterdam City Card, as it includes a city map, unlimited use of public transport and free access to Amsterdam’s top museums and attractions, plus discounts.
For a central 3-star hotel in Amsterdam, one pays between R950 – R1 200 a night.
A meal at a standard restaurant in Holland, including a drink and coffee, will cost about n30 per person (R400).
