Amsterdam Airport Taxi

Taking a taxi at Amsterdam Airport turns to be easy and convenient, especially if passengers are travelling with a lot of luggage as they offer door-to-door services.

However, this is the most expensive mode of transportation and travellers risk sitting in heavy traffic during peak hours.

The distance from Schiphol Airport to the city centre is 9 km, since it is located in Haarlemmermeer; that means an average travel time of about 20 – 25 minutes.
