Destination? The Netherlands!
It happened! You’re planning a trip to the Netherlands. It’s time to choose the best transport option. But not to worry. The good news is that the great popularity of the route Poland – the Netherlands means that you can choose from the offers of many bus operators.
Passenger transport from Poland is extremely popular and Poles are increasingly travelling to the country of tulips and windmills. No wonder that company owners are responding to market demand with a very high frequency of services. So, which means of transport is the best option for a trip to the Netherlands? You will find the answer in the following text.
Transport to the Netherlands: safe, comfortable and increasingly popular
The transport options are truly numerous. You can travel to the Netherlands by plane, private car, train, coach or bus. However, our Employees most often choose the comfortable and relatively cheap option, which is to travel by bus. Why are buses to the Netherlands so popular?
Competitive prices and almost everyday transport
Consider as well the fact that bus operators reach many cities located in the Netherlands almost every single day. So you don’t have to worry if your destination is a less popular place or a small town. You will be driven to your final destination.
In addition, the special discounts offered by our Ready Steady Go agency make this a convenient and relatively cheap transport option.
Saving money not only on the ticket price
When planning your trip to the Netherlands, you also need to consider other aspects of your transport. Remember that travelling by air generates additional baggage costs, which increase the ticket price significantly.
If you travel by bus, you can take up to two suitcases or bags, as well as hand luggage and… basically nothing to worry about. All this is included in the price of your ticket. The buses usually go directly to small towns and cities, which means a great deal of convenience for the traveller. Here you also benefit because you don’t pay extra for any taxis or buses. This is also a huge advantage for people who are going to the Netherlands for the first time and are stressed about possible communication difficulties.
Guaranteed transport from and to the address you specify
You should know that buses to the Netherlands reach all corners of the country, and not just the most popular destinations. A noteworthy feature is the ‘door-to-door’ service, which involves transportation to an address that you specify in advance. This means that you will be picked up by a bus at the indicated place and transported to a specific point of the map in the Netherlands!
This is a great advantage and comfort for travellers. No wonder our Employees usually choose this transport option. Do you want to travel to or from a specific address, but do not have the option of travelling by car? Ask about our door-to-door offer!

High fuel costs in the Netherlands
Be aware of the high cost of refuelling in the Netherlands. Currently, petrol prices in the Netherlands are considered to be the highest in the whole of Europe. If you come to the Netherlands in a car equipped with an LPG system, you will also need to remember about the special adapter that will allow you to fill up with gas. However, fuel prices are not everything. You also have to consider the so-called road tax. What is this tax and what costs does it generate?
Road tax in the Netherlands also known as MRB
When you come to the Netherlands with your own car, you need to know that you will have to pay a special tax for it, from which the roads are maintained. Unfortunately, this also includes foreigners who come to the Netherlands. If you are registered outside the Netherlands, this tax does not apply to you for 6 months. Unfortunately, after this time, you are obliged to pay road tax. What costs does the MRB generate?
The amount of tax depends on the weight of the car and its intended use. For example, for a passenger car over two tonnes, you will have to pay over €2,000 per year! Unfortunately, these are not low costs, so consider coming in your own car if you decide to stay in the Netherlands for a long time.
Transport in the Netherlands without a car? You can!
