Traveling with my 17-year-old granddaughter – do we each need a trip key? Thanks much, jkr
Hi jk, what's a trip key? I googled it, no results.
You each need your own pass. It works like all other similar public transport passes such as the London Oyster Card.
Check whether your intended pick-up point is actually operational. I understand that their list is not totally up to date.
I used Tripkey on my recent trip and thought it a good idea--worked well for us. Each person needs their own, but you can get more than one on a single registration--just ask for what you need when you get it. We picked it up at the Hertz counter at Schiphol on arrival, and returned it there on the way back--Hertz turned out to be near where the trains are, so it was pretty convenient once we found it on the way in. I understand there are other pickup places in Amsterdam, but for arrivals at the airport, getting it there was best since we could then use it on the train to get into the city.
Thanks to all for your help. An email to Tripkey also settled the issue- that my one registration will enable me to pick up more than one tricky under my credit card. JKR
Here is reply from Tripkey from another post

My name is Nadia and I work for TripKey. Here's how it works: you can pick-up up to 12 TripKeys on one account / registration number connected to your credit card.
So indeed, when you arrive at Schiphol airport, you only need to go to the Hertz desk, give them your unique registration number and ask for the cards for your family. They will activate them and you can start traveling.
