The taxy driver did not show up, so I am very disappointed.
Schiphol and its area are famous for the large number of international companies based there and for its airport. It is 18 kilometres from the centre of Holland’s capital, Amsterdam.
The private transfer from the airport to Amsterdam takes about 25 minutes in normal traffic conditions. For a tourist, one of the most important reason for choosing a private taxi service is the Dutch language,although it seems like a trivial detail, reading and pronouncing some words in this language can be quite complicated, for example: Oudezijds and Achterburgwal which are in the central area of the capital.
The average cost for a private taxi which can take up to 4 passengers, from Schiphol to Amsterdam, is around 50euros depending on the distance from the airport to destination. This service includes “meet and greet” with the driver inside the airport. The cost of the return journey, from Amsterdam to Schiphol, normally costs less because the "meet and greet" service is not necessary.

In Schiphol connections with the city are many and efficient. A typical resident tends to choose the bus or train to move around the city but for a tourist, a private direct transfer by car, from the airport to their accomodation, is much preferred.
Above all, it must be said that the majority of people in Amsterdam do respect the law, however, some fraudes do exist. For this reason it is possible to find unlicensed drivers who offer a service at a lower price, causing a subsequent risk to security level. The official body which controls and regulates transport in Amsterdam is the Gvb you are entrusting your security and well being to a complete stranger.
