Two cities of art

Snapdam is the only cross-university trip for photography, film and art lovers. We take you to Rotterdam, a modern city that is home to the national photography museum, and Amsterdam, home to the national galleries and the Van Gogh museum.

Capture the city at its best

Both Rotterdam and Amsterdam are beautiful and offer the chance to take some really incredible photos. Rotterdam is home to the Nederlands Fotomuseum, the leading national museum of photography in the Nehterlands, so you'll get the chance to see the work of some of the best photographers in the country (entry included in your ticket). In both cities we will also provide you with self-guided golden hour photography tours.

The best opportunity to meet new people

Snapdam is the perfect chance to meet like minded people from other universities. We have a super friendly hostel, specific coffeeshops and bars that we recommend, and free entry to the Nederlands Fotomuseum, so you will be running into awesome Snapdammers constantly. We're also running a bar crawl on the first night to really kick off the socialising.

Grab your bag, meet at your university's pick-up point and jump on the coach! You'll be able to kick back in our super comfy coaches as we head off overnight to Rotterdam.


We'll be arriving in Rotterdam early in the morning and you'll have the morning to explore the city. We'll give you lots of tips and fab places to go to make sure you get in the best bits of the city! If the afternoon we'll meet at the National Photography museum, the Nederlands Fotomuseum where you can see over 5.5 million photos, from all genresof photography, from documentary to experimental! After the museum, join us for a legendary bar crawl around Rotterdam, where we'll take you to the best bars and clubs in the city.


Join us for a whole day trip to Amsterdam! The city is seriously beautiful and well worth a visit for any aspiring photographer. It's about an hour away from Rotterdam on the coach and when you get there you can enjoy the many museums, cruise the canals or even brave a walk into the red-light district! Again, we'll show you the best places to go and see so you'll get the most of the day.


Enjoy breakfast in the hostel and you'll have the morning to squeeze in some more of the attractions that Rotterdam has to offer. You'll have some tie to grab your lunch before heading back to the hostel to grab your bags and jump back on the coach to London.


ROOM Hostel

In the centre of Rotterdam sits ROOM Hostel, a one of a kind 'themed hostel'. Every room in this historic art deco building is different, so it is the perfect place to get inspired (and even snap some photos).

More than just a hostel

ROOM Hostel will be our base, but it is so much more than just a hostel. Everyone gets free breakfast, and the Dutch like their breakfast sweet (eg. a national dish is chocolate sprinkles on toast), so just go nuts and get some cavities.

As the day turns into night, the hostel bar becomes the centre for our Snapdam nightlife and is the ideally start location for our bar crawl.

Excellent, we're going to do everything we can to facilitate that.

It is really important that we know as early as possible, ideally before booking. Please note that if we need to arrange alternate arrangements there may be additional costs associated, but we will let you know if that is the case.

Absolutely. It's important you let us know as early as possible (ideally 28 days), however we will attempt to facilitate name changes after this time (it all depends on whether our suppliers will let us change your name at a late date).

We charge a £10 name change fee, which reflect our costs in changing your name with our suppliers.

It always costs less to find someone to take your place (please see other answer), however if that's not possible we have the following cancellation policy.

We have a cancellation fee that is charged based on how many days before travel you decide to cancel:

  1. Less than 28 days before departure: the entire paid balance will be charged (100%).
  2. 28 days to 56 days before departure: the deposit, plus 50% of any paid balance will be charged (a refund of the remainder will be given).
  3. 56 days before departure: only the deposit will be charged, and a refund on the remaining balance will be given.

You will need to pay the remainder of the trip balance by Jun 11, 2019.

Yes. If you would like to join this trip we recommend placing a deposit as soon as possible.

As a small company, we take a double layered approach to ensure our clients are protected, giving us the strongest protection available within the travel industry. You are welcome to contact either of the companies below to verify our customer protection mechanisms.

In the first instance, all client funds are paid into a trust account held by Serenity Travel Trusts; this is an account that is legally separate from our business - run and regulated by solicitors - that holds client funds so that they can be reimbursed to our customers in the event that our business goes insolvent.

On top of this protection, we have a form of insurance called Financial Failure Insurance with Affirma Insurance. This acts a top up in the event that extra money is needed to reimburse customers or to repatriate customers in the event of our financial failure (insolvency).

Lastly, you are of course protected by your payment card issuer, and could obtain a full refund through them if any other form of reimbursement failed.

We want everyone to feel safe when booking on an experience provided by AwesomeTrip, so please contact us if you have any questions!

You should go ahead and book on the trip. If an exam conflicts with the trip dates or if an exam is after the trip dates, you can contact us and we will issue a full refund.

No problem, if your exam will conflict with the trip, or if the exam is after the trip, just let us know and we will issue you with a full refund.
