Delegate Advice:

Delegates must notify us if they have any health or special needs prior to booking the trip as there will be a lot of physical activities involved. Also, all delegates are responsible for their own travel and/or health insurance.
Please note that there will be a lot of walking and outdoor activities during this trip. The Netherlands, like the UK, can be wet and windy so please bring comfortable walking shoes, spare socks and robust weather-proof clothing and outerwear. Umbrellas are not often effective but may be handy.

Travel Information:

To/From UK to Amsterdam: There are direct flights to Amsterdam Schiphol airport from major airports around the UK. It is also possible to travel by train to Amsterdam. Routes and tickets can be found at: Please allow sufficient travel time to arrive

Travelling within the Netherlands: It is possible to purchase single tickets for all travel but this would be time consuming and expensive. Therefore, it is recommended to purchase an Anonymous OV-chipkaart at Amsterdam Schiphol station. This costs €7.50 and is non-refundable but it is valid for 4-5 years so you can reuse for future trips.

Credit the OV-chipkaart with at least €70.00 when purchased. The outstanding credit will remain valid for the duration of the card but you can also request a refund when departing the country. There is a €2.50 administration charge for refunds if you wish to keep the card, and no fee if you choose to cancel/return the card.
