How the Amsterdam Pass Works

The Amsterdam Pass by Leisure Pass Group is designed to function as an all-digital pass providing you entry into the city’s most popular attractions. You simply get your pass scanned at the attraction and go.

The Amsterdam Pass is available for either 1, 2, 3, or 5 days. With the Amsterdam Pass in hand, you’ll have your pick of approximately 50 different attractions to choose from.

As an all-digital product, the Amsterdam Pass doesn’t require anything except a smartphone. Simply purchase your Amsterdam Pass, download it to your smartphone, and you’re off. There’s no need to wait around for your tickets to arrive in the mail.

If you purchase a multi-day Amsterdam Pass, it will be valid for consecutive days from the time of activation (which is defined as the first time you use the pass). This means if you start using your 3-day Amsterdam Pass on a Thursday, you’ll need to use it on that Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

What’s Good?

The Amsterdam Pass works without any paper tickets or booklets. All you need to use it is your smartphone, which makes it both quite efficient and rather environmentally friendly.

The Amsterdam Pass is also super convenient. Since you can download the Amsterdam Pass directly to your smartphone just moments after you purchase it, you don’t even need to plan ahead at all in order to use it.

This means the Amsterdam Pass is perfect for that spontaneous moment or vacation getaway. Also, because the Amsterdam Pass is valid for up to 1 year from the time of purchase, you can wait to buy the pass and stalk it until it goes on sale. Throughout the year you’ll frequently find it available at a real discount price.

When you buy your Amsterdam Pass, you receive a free guidebook. This informative document may be downloaded to the device of your choice. It comes loaded with helpful details like local maps, attraction details (addresses, hours, etc.), and more.

What Could Get Better?

A paper version of the Amsterdam Pass is available, but home delivery of the pass is not. If you want your Amsterdam Pass in paper format, you’ll need to print it out at home before you depart. Or, if you don’t want to worry about transporting it safely, you’ll need to print out your e-mail confirmation voucher and bring it to one of the Amsterdam Pass “Redemption Centers” located in Amsterdam itself.

Amsterdam is home to many glorious museums, and your Amsterdam Pass is a terrific way to see them all. However, it’s likely that in touring great attractions you’ll encounter a special exhibit or two that will pique your interest. More likely than not, any such special exhibits will be counted as “extra add-ons” and not be covered by your Amsterdam Pass. If you want to experience them, you’ll need to pay out of pocket.

Some visitors find the consecutive-days policy of the Amsterdam Pass to be a bit restrictive. If you’re only in Amsterdam for two days, it’s probably not as big of a deal to have to use your Amsterdam Pass on consecutive days. However, if you want to purchase a 5-day Amsterdam Pass, you are potentially sacrificing some scheduling flexibility. However, you should note that the price per day drops dramatically when buying longer duration passes.

From time to time, the Amsterdam Pass will freshen up its attractions list. This can be a cool development if an attraction in which you’re already interested gets added to the mix. However, it’s also possible an attraction you’re planning on touring gets dropped right before your visit. This doesn’t happen all that often—and the most popular attractions are more than likely to never get dropped—but still, it’s a good idea to check their website right before your trip to make certain you have the most up-to-date attraction list.

Get Your Money’s Worth with an Amsterdam Pass

The Amsterdam Pass bills itself as saving you approximately 50%. They base this figure on the total price you’d pay if you added up the admission fees for every one of their offered attractions compared to the single flat-rate fee you pay for your Amsterdam Pass.

If you don’t trust your math skills, make a point of checking out the Amsterdam Pass website for more details. If you click on their “Save Money” tab you’ll find a helpful demonstration of just how much you’ll save by using the Amsterdam Pass at the city’s ten most popular attractions.

As a general rule, remember that the more attractions you visit while using your Amsterdam Pass, the more money you’ll save. The best way to go about accomplishing this, of course, is to start your days as early as possible. If you have a multi-day Amsterdam Pass, this is especially important on the first day. Your Amsterdam Pass is activated once you begin using it.

Insider Amsterdam Pass Tips

Many of Amsterdam’s most popular attractions have free or heavily discounted admission for children. If you’ll be traveling with kids, make sure to look into how many of the sites you want to visit feature this deal—it might just influence how many Amsterdam Passes you want to buy, as well as affect the length of pass your family will want to purchase.

While the majority of Amsterdam’s most famous attractions are open year-round, there are a few available to you as part of the Amsterdam Pass that have limited seasonal availability. It’s something important to keep in mind as you plan your trip.

Other attractions, like the guided tour of Johan Cruyff Arena, have irregular hours that depend on the schedule of AFC Ajax. You’ll need to be in direct contact with the site itself to ensure availability.

A great additional perk of the Amsterdam Pass is that it provides you fast-track entry at a number of attractions. Check the Amsterdam Pass website in advance of your visit to figure out which attractions might be offering you this special access. It’s possible, especially during peak season, that this could save you a lot of time and energy.

When in doubt, visit those attractions that have the most expensive admission prices first. Then, if you run out of time on your Amsterdam Pass—but you still want to visit certain attractions—you’ll be stuck paying out of pocket for only the cheapest attractions.

Where to Buy the Amsterdam Pass

The Amsterdam Pass is sold by many online vendors as well as many concierges in Amsterdam but they will all sell it for full price. You can get a nice discount if you buy it at the official site and wait for a sale online.
