Buying tickets in Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

I will arrive in Amsterdam at Centraal Station from Schiphol Airport. Can someone tell me if the GVB multi day pass can be paid for by US credit card if purchased at the GVB office across from Centraal Station. Also heard that ticket machines take coins only and NO credit cards, Is that true?

And for purchasing tickets for the train from Schiphol to Centraal Station, Do they accept US credit cards? Can you use US credit cards In the machines? or do you have to go to the ticket counter? Or do they only accept European credit cards with chip/pin. I do understand there is slight charge to go to a live person.
