Combined Travel Discount with NS Flex

Do you have NS Flex without a season ticket (NS Flex Basis), NS Flex Weekend Voordeel or NS Flex Weekend Vrij without off-peak discount, and would you like to travel with a discount during off-peak hours? You can, if you travel together with someone who has an NS season ticket. To do so, you need to activate the Samenreiskorting in the NS app or Mijn NS. Please note: The Samenreiskorting is only valid if you travel together with someone who has an NS season ticket (with the exception of KidsVrij) or a Student Travel Product.

Travelling together with someone else

You can activate the Samenreiskorting discount via the NS-app (App Store or Google Play) or via Mijn NS.

Activating the Samenreiskorting via Mijn NS

  1. Log in with your Mijn NS account
  2. Go to 'My travel preferences'
  3. Select 'On' for Samenreiskorting
  4. Click on 'Confirm'

Activating the Samenreiskorting via the NS-app

  1. Open the NS-app and click on 'More'
  2. Log in with your Mijn NS account
  3. Select the OV-chipkaart that has NS Flex
  4. Scroll down to Samenreiskorting and select 'Activate'
  5. Click on 'Confirm'

Please note: if you do not have NS Flex and would like to accompany someone else on your journey, then you must download the Samenreiskorting to your OV-chipkaart at the NS Ticket Machine, as you cannot arrange it via the NS app or Mijn NS.

Out together, home together

NS Flex is based on the principle of out together, home together. If you check in before 06:30, between 09:00 and 16:00, or after 18:30, you will automatically receive a 40% discount on your journey. The discount will remain valid until 04:00 the next morning. The Samenreiskorting is also valid all day on holidays and at the weekend.

Travelling back alone?

If you travel back to your destination alone, then you must deactivate the Samenreiskorting for the return journey via the NS app or Mijn NS.

Letting someone accompany you when you travel

If you have an NS Flex season ticket or another NS season ticket, and would like to have someone travel with you who has an OV-chipkaart without a season ticket, then you're in luck! You can bring along up to 3 other people for a 40% discount during off-peak hours. All you have to do is have your travel companions download the Samenreiskorting to their OV-chipkaart. Read how to do that here.
