Benefits of an NS season ticket

  • Free copy of Spoor magazine 5x per year  with interesting offers.

  • Manage your season ticket with a single, convenient overview in Mijn NS.  Find your journeys in your travel history, and request refunds for delays or when you forget to check out.

For whom?

You travel on a variety of routes during rush hour.

  • Do you travel on a fixed route, for example when commuting, and does a one-way journey take more than 45 minutes? Then Altijd Vrij will probably be cheaper for you than Traject Vrij.
  • Are you able to travel during off-peak hours? With Dal Vrij you get unlimited travel during off-peak hours and on weekends. This can help you to save money on your travel expenses.

Get more out of your season ticket

Several supplements are available for the Altijd Vrij season ticket, offering you even more NS services. Store your bicycle on account, without separate season ticket expenses; rent an OV-fiets bicycle at more than 300 locations in the Netherlands; or travel without a supplement on the Intercity Direct between Rotterdam Centraal and Schiphol. 

You can order these supplements together with your season ticket.

Good to know

  • Delivery time

    You will receive your new personal OV-chipkaart for free with an annual season ticket. For a monthly season ticket, you will be charged a €7.50 for a new OV-chipkaart.

    Your new OV-chipkaart (with your season ticket) will be delivered to your home within one week.

    Season ticket within one day with an existing OV-chipkaart

    If you already have your own personal OV-chipkaart (with photograph), then enter the OV-chipkaart number when ordering your season ticket. You can then download your season ticket within one working day from an NS Ticket Machine. That way, you can travel with a discount right away!

  • Season ticket term

    You may choose from an annual season ticket or a season ticket that automatically expires after one month. An annual season ticket will save you more money in the long run.

    Annual season ticket

    After the first year, you can cancel your season ticket at the end of each month. We will then refund any amount you have remaining on your account. 

    You also have the option of switching to a more expensive season ticket during the first year. 

  • Payment

    You pay for your season ticket on a monthly basis. You can pay the season ticket costs for the first month quickly and securely via your own bank using iDeal. Your first payment completes the order process and confirms your banking details. The remaining season ticket costs will automatically be debited from your bank account each month.

    If you would rather pay your season ticket costs with one lump sum, then you can pay the entire amount via iDeal.

    No iDeal

    If you do not have iDeal, but you do have a personal OV-chipkaart, you can order a season ticket by telephone. NS Customer Service is available 24 hours per day.
