Hi and TIA for all replies.
We're going to be taking the train from Bruges to Amsterdam in September and I just wanted some feedback.
It looks like we need to take the IC from Bruges to Antwerp and then we take either the IC or the Thalys to Amsterdam. From looking at the time tables it looks like Thalys cuts about 1:15 from the time. My question is... right now Thalys is around 42 euro. How much could that go up if we wait and buy on the day of travel?
My second question is... we are considering spending part of the day either looking around Ghent or looking around Antwerp. My guess is the logistics would probably be easier to stop in Antwerp and look around there, since the train will stop there anyway. It's also occurred to me there may be nowhere to store luggage at the Ghent station, while hopefully the Antwerp station will have luggage lockers. Anyway... any thoughts on this? Part of why we are thinking of waiting to buy tickets is simply because were not sure how long we would like to look around.
