There are stories to tell about airports like Schiphol in Amsterdam. Not only stories about people wishing each other bon voyage and farewell but also stories about how comfortable flying can be if an airport knows how to do it well. Schiphol Airport offers something for every traveller and every budget. From cheap long term parking to the Excellence Parking, an airy, clean, safe and rather pleasant luxury car park (with orange accents, we are after all in Holland) connecting straight to the main terminal. From affordable and vibrant eateries inside the terminal to the Privium Lounge, a concept allowing frequent fliers to pass immigration via iris scan, using the fast lane for security and benefiting from a cosy lounge.
I do like the atmosphere on Schiphol Airport. Itâ€™s busy, yes, but there are options and choices. Get away from the madness on the first floor where you will find small cafĂ©s where itâ€™s pleasant to sit and chill. Buy Dutch tulips, great tax-free or almost any international magazine in one of the many outlets. So next time when you are transiting in Schiphol, enjoy it! (and if you are tired and too stressed, check into the Yotel in the terminal where you can get a day room as of 35 euro)
