Train? travel

My wife and I will finish an Avalon river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam and then travel to Koblenz where we will rent a car. What is the best (inexpensive, short, and minimum hassel) way to make that trip. We will travel the next week in the rental car.

Use the train. Advance-sale savings fares as low as 19€ for A'dam - Koblenz can be purchased from the DB website.

Find fares and itineraries for the date in question using these station names:

Amsterdam Centraal

Koblenz Hbf

Because prices go up as tickets sell, you may not find fares nearly as cheap as 19€, if your travel date is "next week." Tickets go on sale 92 days in advance.

The Middle Rhine Valley and Mosel Valley (where Koblenz lies) have frequent and dependable train service that stops in nearly every little riverside hamlet; on the Rhine, trains run up and down both sides of the river from the wee hours of the morning until near midnight. If driving and taking a river cruise, you'll likely need to use the trains to return to your car. Find train schedules at the above web page.

Train passes for two vary from about 44€ for a 3-day pass to 27€/day depending on how much of the area you plan to travel.

Just a note of amplification on Russ's advice...

If you do buy a "Savings Fare" ticket, you MUST ride the specific train(s) that you booked. Miss it, and you'll be buying a full-fare replacement ticket.
