Book in advance

Most of the train companies across Europe release their tickets around three to six months in advance, many of which can be cheaper the earlier you book. If you know the dates you want to travel, you may be able to find some cheaper train tickets from Calais to Amsterdam by booking early.§

Be flexible with your travel times

Choose a slower or connecting train
