Business rates

You can find the rates for NS business products for 2017 here. These rates are also available in the NS Travel Planner.


Price increases for 2017

Starting on 1 January 2017, NS will adjust the rates for one-way tickets, return tickets, day tickets and season tickets. The rates will be increased to compensate for the projected rate of inflation. In 2017, NS will pay less compensation to ProRail for the use of the railway network. This decrease will also be calculated into the price increase, so the increase will be lower than the rate of inflation.

A price increase of 0.39% will go into effect for the following products on NS routes as of 1 January 2017:
