Amsterdam Holland Pass Questions

My flight will arrive in Amsterdam at 11:20 am and international flight will departure in noon next day, so I will stay in Amsterdam about 24 hours.

I would like to buy an Amsterdam Holland Pass 2 (2 free tickets + City Transit). I'm wondering the city transit is valid for 24 hours from the time validate or based on the date to use (day pass only).

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure it starts when you first activate it. Here is the explanation from Amsterdaminfo.com

"Amsterdam Holland Pass assures you 24 hours free public transport in Amsterdam, which is a handy way to start your stay in the city, before you are able to purchase the public transport chip card. A special public transport Blue ticket goes with all types of Amsterdam Holland Pass. Before using this feature, you are requested to exchange this ticket for GVB Day Chip Card (value € 7.50) at the GVB (public transport) or GWK Travelex (money services) office."

Be aware however that this card does not cover your transfer to and from the airport.

Yes, Brianc is correct, you must get into the city first before using the card - but the train only costs 3.90e each way and it only takes 20 mins.

Have a good trip.

I read that Holland Pass 2 has 24-hr public transportation included. I am trying to determine if I can use the "bus" from Schiphol to my hotel as part of my Holland Pass 2. I know that the train from Schiphol to Amsterdam is not included and an extra fee. Do you know? Thanks. Departing soon.
