planning an amsterdam trip but im on a budget.
Posted 26 August 2009 - 07:49 AM
how hard would it be to do a trip to amsterdam on that or say even $2500?
how do i get a passport? how much will it cost? when will i get it?
how much should a plane ticket (round trip) cost if i fly out of Denver Co, or Wichita Ks?
whats a cheap (CLEAN!) hotel in the city? is it close to the airport? is it close to a coffee shop?
is there a city taxi service i can use to get around or will i have to get a map and ride the bus?
how should i handle my vacation money? travelers checks? prepaid visas?
keep in mind this would be my very first overseas trip and i'd like to stay for about a week. any usefull info you guys have just post it here.

Try Orbitz, Expedia or Travelocity for plane tickets.
you'll find cheaper tickets there everytime.

so do you know if i'd run into any problems taking prepaid visas? most i can load up on em is 500 per card.
I had a visa with $500 on it, but if you can just bring your debit card there are ATMs in a lot of places
But there's a lot of useless shit I regret buying
$2500 is plenty for one person on a budget (for 4/5 days or so). Your money will go fast there, but if you're careful you can do it.
There is also a very good tram service. Or you can rent a bike. It's not a city for driving or taking cabs.
The tram is cheap and it is a great way to move around, also I had only $1000 when I went and I did run out. Stoned impulse buys are really hard to overcome there.
