Corrective fees

If you do not check in or do not check out with a Traject Vrij or NS-Business Card, we are unable to determine the journey price. We then charge you a corrective fee.


Corrective fees can vary between season tickets and are always charged on the invoice. See below in which situations and for which season tickets corrective fees apply.

Corrective fee OV-chipkaart with a Traject Vrij season ticket

Have you forgotten to check out with your OV-chipkaart with a Traject Vrij season ticket? Then you will be charged a fine in the form of a € 10 corrective fee. 

Requesting a refund of a corrective fee with an NS-Business Card

Have you paid a corrective fee because you forgot to check in or out? Then you can correct this 3 x per calendar year via Mijn NS Zakelijk from the 9th day after the travel date, because we do not have the journey details until then. Please make sure you do this within 6 months. The difference between the corrective fee and the actual journey price is then corrected in the next invoice.
