Use the machines rather that going to the counter where there is a 1 euro per ticket fee.

You may well be prompted by the machine to buy a Comfort (First) class ticket. If so, chose "Othet tickets" and book a standard single.

There is no difference in price between two singles and a return

If you are a first time visitor th only "must do" is a one hour canal cruise readily available as you come out of Central Station. The rest is subjective.

The ticket machines have the same fee. Only when you buy the ticket online, there is no fee.

Depending on where you need to be in Amsterdam, bus 397 could also be an option.
