    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi Dan, From <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/netherlands/amsterdam/index.html" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam</a> to <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/europe-travel-guide/belgium/brussels/index.html" rel="nofollow">Brussels</a>, there are regular InterCity (IC) trains and high-speed <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html">Thalys</a> trains. Fully assembled bikes are allowed on these InterCity trains but not the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> trains. The InterCity trains would just require that you purchase a special ticket for your bike before boarding. This would be done right at the station. You would purchase tickets for a train from <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/amsterdam-to-brussels.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/amsterdam-to-brussels.html">Amsterdam to Brussels</a> by clicking on 'Find Fares &amp; Schedules' on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>) and entering the route. When you pull up the results of your search, you can identify the InterCity trains on this route by their train number. Train numbers for the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/popular-routes/amsterdam-to-brussels.html" rel="nofollow">Amsterdam-Brussels</a> InterCity trains have 4 digits and begin with a '92'. In contrast, the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow" title="Link: https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html">Thalys</a> would be labeled. Generally, the InterCity trains can only be booked within 60 days of an intended date of departure, while the <a href="https://www.raileurope.com/european-trains/thalys/how-to-book.html" rel="nofollow">Thalys</a> trains can be booked within 90 days of an intended date of departure..
