  80. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">How to buy a ticket</h2>
  81. <p style="text-align: justify;">You can buy Hop-On Hop-Off tickets in Amsterdam either on the spot at one of the stops, or on the official website, or through aggregator sites. The price on the official website and on aggregators is often the same, but buying on the website will be more profitable for two reasons:</p>
  82. <p style="text-align: justify;">You can take advantage of the invitation discount if you are not yet registered on the site.</p>
  83. <figure id="attachment_598" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-598" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-598 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building.jpg" alt="amsterdam old building" width="640" height="427" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building-300x200.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building-600x400.jpg 600w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building-455x304.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/amsterdam-old-building-267x178.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-598" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Frans Ruiter on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  84. <p style="text-align: justify;">Some sites allow you to pay for tickets in many currencies directly without conversion. On the official website, payment is only possible in euros, i.e. your bank will additionally charge you a commission for paying in a foreign currency.</p>
  85. <p style="text-align: justify;">There are four types of Hop-On Hop-Off passes:</p>
  86. <ul style="text-align: justify;">
  87. <li>combo tickets for bus + boat for 24 hours;</li>
  88. <li>combo bus + boat tickets for 48 hours;</li>
  89. <li>bus ticket for 24 hours;</li>
  90. <li>boat ticket for 24 hours.</li>
  91. </ul>
  92. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Bus schedule City Sightseeing Amsterdam</h2>
  93. <p style="text-align: justify;">The bus moves along the red route, boats – along the blue and green routes (in winter, only the green route is valid). The interval between buses is 15-20 minutes, for boats on the green line &#8211; ~35 minutes, for boats on the blue line &#8211; 20-25 minutes.</p>
  94. <p style="text-align: justify;">Do not deny yourself the pleasure of exploring the city of your dreams from a beautiful and comfortable place, which is also a very profitable way to spend your excursion.</p>

  107. <p style="text-align: justify;">Tourist cards are being created for many popular tourist destinations, which provide many discounts, as well as more favourable conditions when buying tickets to museums or attractions and public transport. All this is created for the convenience of tourists during the trip. Such cards save time and money, besides their registration takes place online, so you can do it in advance. If you happen to be in Rotterdam, then be sure to think about buying this card, especially if you have children.</p>
  108. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">What is the Rotterdam city card?</h2>
  109. <p style="text-align: justify;">The <u><a href="https://www.rotterdamcard.net/en/">Rotterdam Card</a></u> is a tourist card that allows you to visit the museums and attractions included in the list. In addition, you can use it as a travel card, that is, you do not have to deal with the local transport system and purchase tickets for a particular public transport. All this is already included in the price of this city card.</p>
  110. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">What are the advantages?</h2>
  111. <p style="text-align: justify;">This card is popular. And this is not for nothing, because it has so many advantages. Not only will you have access to many famous attractions, but also various exclusive offers that are not available to those who are not the owner of the city card. You will also have priority access to some attractions, or various free services in institutions.</p>
  112. <figure id="attachment_590" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-590" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-590 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam.jpg" alt="park in rotterdam" width="640" height="480" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam-300x225.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam-533x400.jpg 533w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam-413x310.jpg 413w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/park-in-rotterdam-267x200.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-590" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Jurriaan on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  113. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Saving money</h2>
  114. <p style="text-align: justify;">If you are worried about whether the diet card will pay off or not, then you can be sure of it. If you spend money on a couple of tickets to a museum, cinema, buy some goodies, then you will realize that this is already enough to buy this card, because with it you can buy more tickets, tickets for public transport and various food. This way you will save money for other entertainment.</p>
  115. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Comfortable with children</h2>
  116. <p style="text-align: justify;">If you are traveling with children, then even more discounts open for you, for example, to the zoo, an amusement park. In addition, if your child is of a certain age, then he does not need to buy a separate card, thereby huge savings are obtained, while leisure time is provided for your children.</p>
  117. <figure id="attachment_591" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-591" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-591 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building.jpg" alt="rotterdam building" width="640" height="424" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building-300x199.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building-604x400.jpg 604w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building-455x301.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/rotterdam-building-267x177.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-591" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Mike van den Bos on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  118. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Where can it be used?</h2>
  119. <p style="text-align: justify;">You can use this card in those museums and attractions that are listed on the website where you can issue this tourist card. It is better to familiarize yourself with this list in advance and make a route so as not to get into a force majeure situation and not waste time on the spot.</p>
  120. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Admissibility</h2>
  121. <p style="text-align: justify;">When you issue this card, be sure to check the date of your trip and the validity of this card. It will be sad if you buy a card, but you will not be able to use it for the entire period of its validity.</p>
  122. <p style="text-align: justify;">As you can understand from all the advantages of this tourist card, it really is that mandatory element of any tourist in Rotterdam. Therefore, determine for yourself whether it is profitable for you and then you can safely register it online.</p>

  157. <p style="text-align: justify;">Together with the card, you will receive a booklet with a detailed indication of those places (including cafes and shops) that can be visited for free or a discount is provided.</p>
  158. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Is it profitable?</h2>
  159. <p style="text-align: justify;">Now let&#8217;s calculate and find out whether it is profitable to travel around Amsterdam with this card.</p>
  160. <p style="text-align: justify;">Definitely, you should not buy a card only for 1 day. Even with all your desire, you are unlikely to be able to recoup the cost of a daily card – from 60 euros.</p>
  161. <p style="text-align: justify;">Let&#8217;s assume that your plan for the 1st day in Amsterdam is as follows: a walk along the canals + the Van Gogh Museum + a visit to the Oudekerk Church + a day of free transportation (which you can not use at all). It turns out about 55 euros, which is a little short of the cost of the card. At the same time, it is worth noting that, taking into account the inspection of other, free, attractions in the centre of Amsterdam, it will be quite difficult to fulfil such a plan. And the possibility of free transportation is a rather dubious event at all. There are many interesting places in the historical centre of the city that are within walking distance of each other, so it&#8217;s pointless to travel here by tram.</p>
  162. <p style="text-align: justify;">Let&#8217;s estimate the approximate use of the card for 3 days: a walk along the canals + the Van Gogh Museum + the Diamond Museum + a visit to the Oudekerk Church + NEMO Museum + Zoo + Botanical Garden + 3 days of free travel + Heineken Museum (with 25% discount). Total – about 125 euros. Free transportation in this case is already quite a useful thing that will make you much more mobile within 3 days. In addition, it is worth considering various pleasant little things in stores and discounts in cafes, some of which you can quite manage to get in 3 days. As you can see, the benefits are obvious.</p>
  163. <figure id="attachment_586" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-586" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-586 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam.jpg" alt="aerial view on amsterdam" width="640" height="427" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam-300x200.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam-600x400.jpg 600w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam-455x304.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/11/aerial-view-on-amsterdam-267x178.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-586" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Bart Ros on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  164. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Conclusion</h2>
  165. <p style="text-align: justify;">There remains only one question: is such a rich cultural program included in your plans? You have to answer it yourself, and if the answer is &#8220;yes&#8221;, then having an I Amsterdam City Card will certainly play into your hands.</p>

  178. <p style="text-align: justify;">When it comes to European real estate, two cities often dominate the conversation: London and Amsterdam. Both cities have their unique charm and investment opportunities, but they cater to different tastes and budgets. So, where should you invest in a flat? Let&#8217;s break it down.</p>
  179. <h2 style="text-align: justify;"><strong>London: The Pros and Cons</strong></h2>
  180. <p style="text-align: justify;">London, the UK&#8217;s bustling capital, offers a diverse range of properties. From new build homes in up-and-coming areas like East London to luxurious apartments in the city centre, the choices are endless. The city&#8217;s real estate market is robust, with consistent growth in property values over the years. However, London&#8217;s high cost of living and competitive property market can make investments here a hefty financial commitment.</p>
  181. <p style="text-align: justify;">When it comes to European real estate, London and Amsterdam are often the top contenders. Both cities offer a range of properties, from modern apartments to traditional houses, but they cater to different markets and investment strategies. So, where&#8217;s the best place to buy a flat? Let&#8217;s delve into the pros and cons of each city&#8217;s real estate market to help you make an informed decision.</p>
  182. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Pros:</h3>
  183. <ol style="text-align: justify;">
  184. <li>Diverse Range of Properties: London offers everything from new build homes in East London to luxurious apartments in the city center. The diversity allows for various investment strategies.</li>
  185. <li>Strong Rental Market: With a high population density and a constant influx of new residents, the demand for rental properties, especially flats and apartments, is robust.</li>
  186. <li>Capital Growth: London&#8217;s real estate market has shown consistent growth over the years, making it a potentially lucrative long-term investment.</li>
  187. </ol>
  188. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="aligncenter wp-image-566 size-large" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-1024x771.png" alt="investition" width="960" height="723" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-1024x771.png 1024w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-300x226.png 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-768x578.png 768w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-531x400.png 531w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-412x310.png 412w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition-267x201.png 267w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/investition.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 960px) 100vw, 960px" /></p>
  189. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Cons:</h3>
  190. <ol style="text-align: justify;">
  191. <li>High Entry Costs: The initial investment for buying a <u><a href="https://1newhomes.com">property in London</a></u> can be steep, especially in prime locations.</li>
  192. <li>Competitive Market: High demand often leads to bidding wars, making it a seller&#8217;s market.</li>
  193. <li>Cost of Living: London&#8217;s high cost of living can affect your rental income, as tenants are likely to negotiate hard on prices.</li>
  194. </ol>
  195. <h2 style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Amsterdam: The Pros and Cons</strong></h2>
  196. <p style="text-align: justify;">Amsterdam, on the other hand, offers a different kind of allure. Known for its picturesque canals and historic architecture, the city has a more laid-back vibe compared to London. The real estate market here is less volatile, making it a safer bet for those looking to invest in flats or houses. However, Amsterdam&#8217;s property market is smaller and less diverse, which could limit your investment options.</p>
  197. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Pros:</h3>
  198. <ol style="text-align: justify;">
  199. <li>Stable Market: Amsterdam&#8217;s real estate market is less volatile compared to London, making it a safer bet for conservative investors.</li>
  200. <li>Lower Entry Costs: The initial investment for properties, especially flats and houses, is generally lower than in London.</li>
  201. <li>Quality of Life: Known for its picturesque canals and laid-back lifestyle, Amsterdam offers a unique living experience, making it attractive to potential tenants.</li>
  202. </ol>
  203. <p><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="aligncenter wp-image-568 size-large" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-1024x771.png" alt="london" width="960" height="723" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-1024x771.png 1024w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-300x226.png 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-768x578.png 768w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-531x400.png 531w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-412x310.png 412w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london-267x201.png 267w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/london.png 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 960px) 100vw, 960px" /></p>
  204. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Cons:</h3>
  205. <ol style="text-align: justify;">
  206. <li>Smaller Market: Amsterdam&#8217;s property market is less diverse, offering fewer investment options.</li>
  207. <li>Lower Rental Yields: While the city has a strong rental market, the yields are generally lower compared to London.</li>
  208. <li>Tax Implications: The Netherlands has different property tax regulations, which could impact your ROI.</li>
  209. </ol>
  210. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Financial Considerations: London vs. Amsterdam</h2>
  211. <p style="text-align: justify;">Let&#8217;s talk numbers, shall we? Both London and Amsterdam offer promising real estate investment opportunities, but they come with different financial implications. London&#8217;s property market, especially when it comes to new build homes, is generally more expensive. However, the city offers higher rental yields, making it an attractive option for those looking to invest in apartments or flats for rental income.</p>
  212. <p style="text-align: justify;">Amsterdam, while more affordable upfront, has lower rental yields. The city&#8217;s property market is also subject to different tax regulations, which could impact your long-term investment strategy. However, Amsterdam offers a more stable market, with less fluctuation in property values, making it a safer but potentially less lucrative investment.</p>
  213. <p style="text-align: justify;">If you don&#8217;t have the funds for a big investment in an expensive city, some investors resort to mortgages. Take any <u><a href="https://1newhomes.com/mortgage-payment-calculator">mortgage calculator</a></u> and calculate your budget accurately.</p>

  297. <p style="text-align: justify;">Dubai is not just a city. Dubai is a brand, a legend and a trademark of all the most progressive and luxurious. This is the &#8220;city of records&#8221;, which in a little more than 50 years has turned from a point in a lifeless desert into the most dynamic and rapidly developing metropolis. This is the city of everything: the tallest tower in the world, the largest shopping mall in the world, the most expensive hotel in the world, the most stable economy and currency in the world, the safest city in the world.</p>
  298. <p style="text-align: justify;">Dubai is considered one of the most progressive cities with a multinational population. Since the government of the country conducts a fairly loyal tax and foreign economic policy, many people want to purchase real estate on its territory as a successful investment. Apartments in <u><a href="https://dubai.etagi.com/en-us/zastr/">new buildings</a></u>, which have already been commissioned and are fully ready for finishing work and subsequent settlement, are considered especially popular.</p>
  299. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">The main advantages of buying a home in a ready-made house</h2>
  300. <p style="text-align: justify;">Deciding to buy an apartment in a ready-made house in Dubai, each client can get a significant benefit. It is noteworthy that this type of housing provides many advantages for buyers:</p>
  301. <ol style="text-align: justify;">
  302. <li>The house territory is completely paved and ready for further use. There are convenient Parking lots and beautiful landscaping on its territory.</li>
  303. <li>All rooms have electrical wiring made of copper cable, as well as sockets, switches and cartridges.</li>
  304. <li>The apartments have a shell condition, which provides for the implementation of a concrete screed, the wiring of the pipeline system in the bathroom, smooth walls.</li>
  305. </ol>
  306. <figure id="attachment_537" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-537" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-537 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai.jpg" alt="high building in dubai" width="640" height="427" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai-300x200.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai-600x400.jpg 600w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai-455x304.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/high-building-in-dubai-267x178.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-537" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Agnieszka Stankiewicz on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  307. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">What ready-made new buildings are offered in Dubai?</h2>
  308. <p style="text-align: justify;">New buildings are located in the city centre, residential areas or on the outskirts. In addition, you can choose apartments in houses built of different materials, for example, block, brick, reinforced concrete, monolithic. The company&#8217;s website provides a detailed description of the residential complex, which makes it much easier and faster to choose the best option.</p>
  309. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Why else is it profitable to invest in Dubai real estate?</h2>
  310. <h4 style="text-align: justify;">Growing market</h4>
  311. <p style="text-align: justify;">Real estate prices in Dubai are steadily rising. Demand is especially noticeably ahead of supply in the premium segment. Buying and reselling an apartment after a couple of years with 10-15% profit turned into a win-win strategy.</p>
  312. <h4 style="text-align: justify;">Residence permit</h4>
  313. <p style="text-align: justify;">Having bought a property for more than $ 205 thousand, investors and their families are entitled to the status of residents of the UAE. You will be able to open personal and corporate accounts in local banks, as well as stay in the country all year round.</p>
  314. <figure id="attachment_536" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-536" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-536 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai.jpg" alt="night dubai" width="640" height="427" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai-300x200.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai-600x400.jpg 600w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai-455x304.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/night-dubai-267x178.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-536" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Andreas M on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  315. <h4 style="text-align: justify;">In-demand rental</h4>
  316. <p style="text-align: justify;">Renting an apartment for short-term rent can bring up to 12-15% per annum without taking into account the increase in the cost of the object itself. Even if we forget about tourists, the vast majority of Dubai&#8217;s population are expats. They also need to rent a house.</p>
  317. <h4 style="text-align: justify;">Resort paradise</h4>
  318. <p style="text-align: justify;">Dubai is a city of sea, sun and eternal summer. Investors can once and for all decide the issue of housing for a holiday resort, if they choose a property near the beach. By the way, such objects never lose in value.</p>
  319. <h4 style="text-align: justify;">Neutral status</h4>
  320. <p style="text-align: justify;">The UAE is a neutral country. In Dubai, Russians are not limited in any way in buying, selling or renting housing compared to representatives of other states. Developers accept transfers from many banks.</p>
  321. <p style="text-align: justify;">Welcome to the Dubai Real Estate market!</p>

  334. <p style="text-align: justify;">You are unlikely to get miles and cashback for a flight on a private plane. But by jet, you can get to places where regular flights do not fly — or absolutely fly away, even if there are no more tickets left.</p>
  335. <p style="text-align: justify;">Tickets may not remain for those destinations that are popular among tourists. Amsterdam also belongs to them. If you rent a <a href="https://private-jets.co.uk/destinations/amsterdam/">private jet Amsterdam</a>, then you will have no problems visiting this city.</p>
  336. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Procedure of actions</h2>
  337. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Step 1. Select the aircraft</h3>
  338. <p style="text-align: justify;">First you need to contact the air broker, inform the date and desired time of departure of the private jet, as well as provide documents. It is better to book options in advance and be sure to conclude an agreement with a broker company that organizes the flight.</p>
  339. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Step 2. Prepare for the flight</h3>
  340. <p style="text-align: justify;">It makes no sense to arrive at the airport much in advance — because you will pass passport and baggage control at the business aviation terminal. Firstly, everything goes very quickly, and secondly, it is a great option to maintain confidentiality. You don&#8217;t need a ticket for such a flight. There are no delays either.</p>
  341. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Step 3. Fly to where you need to go</h3>
  342. <figure id="attachment_420" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-420" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-420 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains.jpg" alt="madeira mountains" width="640" height="422" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains-300x198.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains-607x400.jpg 607w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains-455x300.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/madeira-mountains-267x176.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-420" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Tim Roosjen on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  343. <h2 style="text-align: justify;">Types of rentals</h2>
  344. <p style="text-align: justify;">Everyone dreams of flying on a private plane and drinking sparkling wine only in the company of a flight attendant and a pilot. But if the main thing is just to fly somewhere, other options will do. They happen.</p>
  345. <h3>Charter</h3>
  346. <p style="text-align: justify;">You can rent a separate plane only for yourself and your loved ones. Private board is selected according to your preferences and any budget, if necessary, the organizers can think over the escort and transfer. They also help with the paperwork for your pets.</p>
  347. <h3>Group charter</h3>
  348. <p style="text-align: justify;">This service is often used by corporate companies, which need to organize a comfortable transportation of their employees to another city or country.</p>
  349. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Empty-Leg</h3>
  350. <p style="text-align: justify;">This is a section of the air route along which a private plane follows empty, and therefore it can be handed over to other passengers in advance at a low price. That is, you share the route with someone else and this greatly reduces the cost of the trip, so you can rent a private plane with a discount of up to 50%.</p>
  351. <figure id="attachment_421" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-421" style="width: 640px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img loading="lazy" decoding="async" class="wp-image-421 size-full" src="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet.jpg" alt="grey private jet" width="640" height="427" srcset="https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet.jpg 640w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet-300x200.jpg 300w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet-600x400.jpg 600w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet-455x304.jpg 455w, https://triptoamsterdam.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/grey-private-jet-267x178.jpg 267w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" /><figcaption id="caption-attachment-421" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by Trac Vu on Unsplash</figcaption></figure>
  352. <h3>Deals</h3>
  353. <p style="text-align: justify;">The flight according to such a system is fully adjusted to the main customer (date, direction, time), and is also agreed at each stage (price, number of seats for sale). This allows you to reduce the cost of renting a board by selling half or part of the seats for an already confirmed and paid flight.</p>
  354. <h3 style="text-align: justify;">Jet Sharing</h3>
  355. <p style="text-align: justify;">You buy a separate seat in a jet, enjoy all the advantages of business aviation, and share the cost of the flight with the rest of the passengers.</p>
  356. <p style="text-align: justify;">Such flights gained popularity during the pandemic — when there were no regular flights. They still perfectly replace them to this day. And with this method, you can see the real number of reserved and available seats in real time.</p>
  357. <p style="text-align: justify;">Thus, you can fly to places where flights are not so frequent, at any time, besides with comfort.</p>

  399. <description><![CDATA[Are you seeking to escape the cold, enjoy some outdoor recreation or shop guilt-free gifts? Amsterdam has it all. Take advantage of its temperate weather, warm temperatures and sunny skies to take in all that this vibrant city has to offer. Start your explorations at Museumplein, Amsterdam&#8217;s most beloved square. Here you&#8217;ll find most of the country&#8217;s major museums such as Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk Museum. Winter Amsterdam has something special for visitors all year round, but the winter months are especially rewarding. Here you can take in its one-of-a kind art pieces, picturesque canals, unique historic sites and more in unparalleled beauty.

The first written mention of it dates back to 1275 when Count Floris V granted residents near the dam freedom to navigate without paying tolls on the IJ. At this time, Amsterdam became a major global trading center. Ships from Amsterdam would sail to North America, Indonesia, Brazil and Africa forming the foundations of an extensive global trading network. But the town was rapidly growing and needed space to expand. Therefore, in the 17th century, a series of canals were constructed. These canals were the basis of Amsterdam&#8217;s Golden Age and opened up new trade opportunities by transporting goods between its new port and financial centers across Europe. Furthermore, these canals allowed ships to transport goods between them as well as within Amsterdam itself, creating a vibrant financial center.
