We're arriving into Schiphol after a long overnight flight, and I expect to be tired and a bit dis-oriented, so want to nail down how to get to Central train station from the airport.
I see where we exit into Schiphol Plaza, and look for the trains there. I assume there is an easily marked location where we can purchase tickets into town, is it with the regular train ticket booth or a separate booth? Is it manned or automated only? And can we buy our return train tickets now as well for later use?
And do we need to punch or stamp our tickets before or while boarding (like mass transit), or will there be a conductor checking tickets (like on a train)?
Thanks for the help!
