I am traveling with my two teen daughters from London to Amsterdam (one way) this summer. I am trying to find the more efficient means of travel (We are staying in Islington). Cost is a consideration but convenience counts.
Flights cost about $55 pp (plus $20 for one checked bag (how strict is EasyJet?)), transport via train about $15 pp. Seems like Luton is most convenient airport. $70 sounds great as opposed to $110 for the Eurostar. However, if we take a cab to St Pancreas and hop on a train to Amsterdam, the convenience may be worth it (4 1/2 hours by train vs 1 hour to get to the airport, check in 1 1/2 hours early and fly for 1 1/2 hours). In addition, getting to Amsterdam City, which I have not yet checked out, may be easier from the train station vs the airport.
Ok, I am overwhelmed to please offer guidance!
