Train from Schiphol--what do kids have to pay?

Jump to last reply

Hi-- Family of 4 arriving in AMS in late August. We are planning on taking the train from Schiphol to Centraal Station. 2 things-- do kids (ages 10 and 7) have to pay? I looked at the website and it was not that clear. I saw reference to the EUR 2.50 fare for kids but it's not obvious to me what ages that includes or whether it covers journeys from the airport.

Second thing-- we would like to purchase the OV Chipkaart for the time we are there. Can someone confirm that we can purchase this at the airport (but I don't think it would cover the trip from Schiphol to Centraal) from a live person (i.e., we don't have a chip & PIN credit card)? And is it required for children (7 and 10 years)?

Thanks so much in advance.
