I will be traveling from Schiphol to Antwerp this Saturday 7/22 and wondering what is the best train option for me based on time, price and comfort? I will have with me a roller bag and a backpack. I am arriving at Schiphol airport at 840am, and will need to get to Antwerp by 115pm to catch a tour at 2pm. I am budgeting ~1.5h for landing, getting through customs and picking up my bag, and here are the train options I am seeing:
1008am - 1215pm (IC train, direct, 2h 7min, 33 eur);
1034am - 1130am (Thalys, direct, 56min, 73 eur);
1037am - 1215pm (IC train, 1 transit at Rotterdam, 1h 38min, 33 eur);
1108am - 115pm (IC train, direct, 2h 7min, 33 eur);
1134am - 1230pm (Thalys, direct, 56min, 73 eur);
1137am - 115pm (IC train, 1 transit in Rotterdam, 1h 38min, 33 eur)
Any advice? Or any other options I should consider? Is the transit at Rotterdam tricky?
