Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 88 reviews

It would make sense to set up personal contact options at central points. The only personal information I received from Rotterdam Centraal was from two very friendly employees who had already finished their service.

Absolutely great card, easy to use for public transportation, discount in Museum. I use every type of public transport with this card, except trains and water taxis but they worth. Love Rotterdam ❤️

Sometimes points are missing for the questions that are asked, such as in the Rotterdam city hall, an element is missing. Otherwise a great trip and fun to do

You will be helped very well at Rotterdam Central and this card is super handy because you can go where you want and when.
