If you are 60 years or older and have a Dal Voordeel, Altijd Voordeel or a Voordeeluren season ticket, then you can travel at an extra discount for seven days per year with the Keuzedagen [Optional days]. Keuzedagen for 2nd class travel cost € 26 per contract year, and € 51 for 1st class. This price is in addition to the cost of a Dal Voordeel, Altijd Voordeel or Voordeeluren season ticket. Unfortunately, Keuzedagen are not available in combination with NS Flex.
Changes in 2021
Starting on 1 January 2021, Keuzedagen will no longer be valid during the afternoon rush hour. From 30 October 2020, you will receive a Keuzedag that is valid for 12 months. When extending your Keuzedagen after mid-2021, all Keuzedagen will receive the same validity as the Annual Keuzedag, i.e. all seven for the entire contract year.

How do I download my Keuzedagen?
Before you can use your Keuzedag, you must download it to your OV-chipkaart at an NS Ticket Machine.
When can I travel with my Keuzedagen?
There are some minor differences between the Keuzedagen for holders of a Voordeeluren season ticket and those for the Dal Voordeel or Altijd Voordeel season tickets.
Renewing, cancelling, or changing Keuzedagen
Cancelling your season ticket or switching to another season ticket may have consequences for your Keuzedagen. Your Keuzedagen will be extended and renewed automatically.
