  1. 1. The card marked with Mastro is ok and you can refer to: http://webdemo.ns.nl/webdemo.e2000/ . You had better buy a ticket at the counter.
    2. It’s not very convenient. You still need to bring some cash.
    3. Yes, you can.
    4. Yes, you can. International tickets to Germany and Belgium are available in the machine , and other tickets must be bought over the counter. There is no discount for international tickets on the spot, and you can get a discount if you buy early.

  2. 1.You can go to withdraw the cash at the airport or at any ATM. Then you can go to the railway station counter. (need to pay additional fees)
    2. It is better to bring the cash instead. You can draw money at any time
    3. That’s fine
    4. You can buy domestic tickets on the same day. For international tickets, it is better to book online in advance, which will be cheaper. If you buy International tickets on the same day, you should buy them at the counter.

  3. Thank you for replying me so soon. I have a few more questions.
    1. Is it easy to exchange money in the city? Where is economical to exchange money?
    2. If I just bought international tickets, would it be much cheaper to book online in advance?
    3. In addition,is there a Carrefour in the city?

  4. There are many places for exchanging in the Amsterdam city center. Some service fees are high and some are low. But if the amount is small, the fee is not so much.There is no need to go to the bank. It seems that there is no Carrefour there.

  5. Only the Netherlands MASTRO can be used at the railway station machine. Some machines can allow cash payment but in most cases, the payment are made with COINS . If you go to the counter, you will be charged a fee of 0.5 euro. If you are not familiar, it is better to go to the counter.
