Cheap parking in Amsterdam: just pay €1,- per 24 hours

At the so called P+R, Park and Ride areas, you can park your car for just €1,- per 24 hours! The conditions for this cheap price is only that you will arrive after 10 AM or during the weekend. If you arrive before 10 AM you still pay not so much: then you can park your car for €8,- per 24 hours. At the P+R areas you can park your car for a maximum of 4 days. The only thing that you have to do to get those rates is to travel from the P+R area by public transport (OV) to the city center.
