When can you travel with a discount, exactly?

Unlimited travel at the weekend
from 18:30 on Friday evening to 04:00 on Monday morning.

Unlimited travel on holidays
all day long.

During off-peak hours , you travel with a 40% discount
from Monday to Friday between 09:00  and 16:00 and  between 18:30  and 06:30.

If you check in during off-peak hours, but check out during peak hours , you still receive the 40% discount.

Who is this season ticket for?

If you travel at the weekend several times per month, then Weekend Vrij is often the option that saves you the most money. If you travel longer distances, then Weekend Vrij can even save you money starting from one trip per month.

If you also regularly travel during the week, then perhaps consider purchasing a Dal Vrij or Altijd Vrij season ticket.

Extra discount for 65-plus

Anyone aged 65 or older is eligible for a 30% discount off the price of a Weekend Vrij season ticket. Simply enter your date of birth when ordering the season ticket, and we will automatically calculate the correct price.

Get more out of your season ticket

Several supplements are available for the Weekend 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.
