Voice of Travelers to Netherlands
My Historical Netherlands Tour
I have always been fascinated with the history of the Netherlands, so I was very excited when my university paid for my ticket to go to the Netherlands and study. It was an economy class ticket to the Netherlands from London on British Airways, but the service was still very good. The pilot told us about the amazing dams in the Netherlands as we flew over them. I went on many historical tours in the Netherlands with tickets that were paid for by my university. I learned a lot about the history of the Netherlands during my trip, but there is so much more to learn that I cannot wait to get my next ticket to visit the Netherlands and learn even more.
The Netherlands Is a Great Place to Party
Me and my friends from Germany were looking for a great place to party for our spring break, and one of my friends said that there were a bunch of cheap tickets to the Netherlands available on a Lufthansa flight over the weekend. We each bought a ticket to the Netherlands, and then quickly packed our stuff and headed to the airport. Our Lufthansa tickets to the Netherlands were really great. The flight to the Netherlands was short and the food was amazing, especially for the low price that we paid for our tickets. As soon as we landed in the Netherlands, we started to party and enjoy beers that are made in the Netherlands. We bought bus tour tickets and traveled all over the major cities in the Netherlands, drinking, eating and meeting the locals. It was so sad when we had to leave the Netherlands, but we will all go back the next time there are cheap tickets to the Netherlands available.
Our Company Getaway in the Netherlands
Our company had been planning a getaway for the staff in the Netherlands for a long time. We work in Paris, so it is a short and cheap ticket over to the Netherlands for a weekend. We all left for the Netherlands after work on a Friday with tickets that were paid for by the company. Our tickets to the Netherlands were for Ryanair, which I had always heard good things about. The service for our tickets to the Netherlands was great, and we got there quickly and with no problems. We spent our weekend in the Netherlands doing fun events with the whole company, which I really enjoyed. The ticket to happy employees is a vacation in the Netherlands.
