Schipol hotel shuttle to hotel and back

Has anyone used this shuttle service? Would the cost - 17 Euro one way, cost about the same as taking the train to Amsterdam Centraal and then a taxi to Dam Square? I think I'll have too much luggage to take a tram - one suitcase a little bit bigger than than a carry on, a wheeled tote that sits on top of the suitcase and a large tote over the shoulder.

I will also need to get to the airport around 7:30am. What would be most reliable? I lean towards a taxi and the train.

Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I paid 18 euro for a private taxi by booking well in advance.

Another vote for Tinker. You meet a nice employee at a designated meeting point by Burger King and they take your bags and escort you to your car.

I read one review that a couple who booked with Tinker waited a very long time for the driver to arrive at the airport. Have you found them to be reliable to go to the airport?

I have used the shuttle a lot. Going from and coming back to the airport. I like them. They have never failed me.

But there are other methods such as tinker taxi that have come on the scene more recently that may work as well or better.

I've used tinker three times now and all were flawless. The driver arrived early to pick up in town to go to the airport. Which is more than can be said about the airport shuttle.
