Ne plus être piéton à Amsterdam: un défi
We do not always think about learning about transportation before an expatriation. Yet this factor is ultra-important when looking for an apartment, or when you want to know the cost of living.

Cycling in Amsterdam
And yes, who says Amsterdam, says bike! It’s a way of life there and besides the whole city is covered with bike lane. You can rent a bike for about 8 € a day but the more you ride, the less you pay. Indeed, there are long term rentals not too expensive. And then it’s still The tradition.
Taxis in Amsterdam
The trip will cost € 1.80 / km regardless of the time of day, with an option of 5% to 10% tip. However it’s like Paris, there are taxi ranks. Hail them in the street does not work well.
The car is good and practical but do not forget that parking in Amsterdam is a real challenge. In the city center is even mission impossible unless you reserve your parking space.
