Money, money, money..
Our currency is the euro (EUR). Cash and Maestro debit cards, called ‘pin cards’, are the most common form of payment for goods and services. Credit cards are not commonly used in the Netherlands for smaller purchases like car parks and train tickets, so it’s a good idea to carry some cash and coins with you.
Plug it in
The Netherlands uses the Type F electrical plug. This plug has two round pins, spaced about 2cm apart, and is the same as those used in many countries in Continental Europe. The standard voltage is 230-volts.
Holland is a country well known for things such as windmills and wooden shoes. But there is so much more to Europe’s most densely populated country than just cheese and bikes.
The Dutch culture is warm, friendly and welcoming to foreign influences. People are friendly and most can speak other languages in addition to their native Dutch language. Above all the Dutch are open-minded, tolerant by nature and almost always happy to figure out a way to communicate with you – whether your English is perfect or not.
You like bicycles? If the answer is yes, you came to the right place! We have almost as many bicycles as people. The Dutch like to cycle, really like to cycle, especially in urban areas. One warning though, please be careful in the big cities when cycling there as a tourist, the Dutch are experts at cycling and the other traffic expects them to be – there’s a lot of accidents involving inexperienced tourists on bikes, please don’t get hurt! The Dutch are, so to speak, born with a bike between their legs...
