Amsterdam to Brugge

Hello, i am thinking of taking regional trains from Amsterdam to Brugge, without prebooking. Can i do Amsterdam to Rotterdam to Antwerp to Brugge? How much would those regional tickets bought at the station be? I am also planning on staying a night in both Rotterdam and Antwerp along the way.

Amsterdam to Rotterdam: take any Intercity train (via either Haarlem or Schiphol airport; running every 15 mins) for € 15,40.
Rotterdam to Antwerpen: take the Intercity Brussel (running every hour) for € 22,80.
Antwerpen to Brugge: take any intercity (either direct or with a change at Gent-Sint Pieters) for € 15,40.
All these trains come without reservation. Your ticket is valid for any train on that day.

I also have a flight out of Charleroi airport at 2pm on a tuesday. I would like to leave from Brugge. Can i just buy a train ticket to Charleroi Sud station and then the bus to the airport? How much is that and what website would you suggest? Or better yet, is this easily done at the station the morning im leaving from Brugge, instead of pre booking? Thanks!

I have developed the routine to buy this kind of tickets the day (evening) before, when there won't be queues at the ticket window. According to the NMBS/SNCB website the combined train/bus ticket costs € 22,00.

You can indeed use the train from Brugge to Charleroi Airport with a change in Brussel and a TEC shuttle bus from Charleroi-Sud / South railway station to the airport. Ticket for the bus is included, but for that you have to select under “Timetable & buy tickets” and under pulldown menu Ticket: Tickets Charleroi Airport and second Ticket: Ticket to Charleroi Airport. Have done this a few times. http://www.belgianrail.be/en/Default.aspx (fill in destination Charleroi South Airport)

There is also a Flibco shuttle bus (guess) departing at the backside of the railway station in Brugge. Have no experience with that but looks like good value for the money. Nevertheless worth checking if someone has good experiences. https://www.charleroi-airport.com/en/access/shuttle-buses/index.html
