If you wish to reserve a taxi to either take you to Leiden train station or directly to Schiphol,

please let Auke Planjer know a bit in advance.

 

The costs of a taxi trip to Leiden Train Station is about EUR 12,50

and to Schiphol International Airport about EUR 45,- / 50,-

 

Maybe you can find 2 or 3 others to share the taxi to Schiphol with?!
