How to reach Amsterdam on a budget?

All right…after months and months of really hard work, you make a calculation thinking you saved enough money for your Big Trip. But…those freaking airline tickets are so expensive that you have to work at least an extra couple of months before you can go. This was the hard reality fellow backpackers encountered in the past. But then, Thank God, some people got smart. It was Ryan air who started; they had the first notable success with low airline fares. And people copy success. These days there are plenty of providers with low fares. We are very grateful for that! To make it easy for you, we checked out the newest (from-) prices to come to our lovely city Amsterdam from the key-cities of Europe. Good luck with finding the best price for you and remember, the earlier you book, the cheaper it is.
Cya soon…
