Travel Forums Europe paris to amsterdam

1. Posted by blue tiger (Budding Member 6 posts) 9y

me and my boyfiend are travelling round europe in september

we are thinking of spending most of our time in germany and buying the zone pass for germany-denmark-switzerland-austria

but we have already booked flights to paris

we are now thinking we could spend a few days in paris, travel up to amsterdam and then take germany from there

but we have no idea of train fares or flight fares that would allow us to do this,

is the plan a bad idea? should we skip amsterdam altogether and try get a flight or train stright to germany from paris??

any help on this would be much appriciated

thanks Gemma

(ps we booked the flights to paris with the impression we were going to amsterdam, but on reflection of cash we didnt want to pay for a 2 zone pass and only use it for two places.)

It's hard to say, it depends on what places you want to see, and how much time you have. As far as time is concerned I don't see a big problem. But you will need to buy p2p-tickets from Paris to Amsterdam (101 euros), and from Amsterdam to the German border.

If you feel, that moneywise, it is better to skip Amsterdam on this trip, then you will have a reason to return. I wouldn't worry to hard about it.

I think that a flight out of Paris to somewhere in Germany is a good option, or if Vienna should be on the list, maybe to Vienna, because that would be the destination, the furthest to the East. (Or maybe starting in Copenhagen (furthest North). This way you can cover distance fast and cheap, without the need to travel the same stretch twice. As I don't know how your itinerary looks, it's a bit tough to say.

thanks i was thinking of skipping amsterdam and flying to germany seen flights from 29 euros inc tax to somewhere west germany

think this is the best route to take as the money is a bit of a problem and could always have a weekend in amsterdam as there is always cheap flights over there

but will have to see when we get over there might have a deal on or something

but yeah think ur right skipping amsterdam

thanks

Hi,

If you are looking for cheap flights in and around europe try

www.ryanair.com
www.easyjet.com
www.whichbudget.com

You'll be very suprised how cheap you can get flights, I only booked free flights yesterday for my brother which means he only pays €45 for a return flight(taxes& charges).

Enjoy!
