Return tickets are interchangeable between the two Dutch mail companies, and passengers going by one and returning by the other line will find a pleasant diversity in the routes followed. If travelling by the Nederland Line they will see Singapore, Sabang (a charming island at the northernmost extremity of Sumatra), Colombo, the Suez Canal and Genoa, whilst the Rotterdam Lloyd calls at the beautiful Port of Padang (west coast of Sumatra), Colombo and Marseilles. If continuing oversea instead of overland, passengers by the Nederland Line visit Algiers, Tangier, Lisbon, Southampton and Amsterdam, and those by the Rotterdam Lloyd have an opportunity of seeing Gibraltar, Tangier, Lisbon, Southampton and Rotterdam. The Rotterdam Lloyd steamers call at Southampton, Lisbon and Gibraltar on the outward journey, and passengers for London on the homeward journey are provided with a free passage from Rotterdam bv either Flushing or Hook of Holland route.
