When can I travel with my Keuzedagen?

Keuzedagen (Optional days) for season ticket holders aged with a Voordeelurenabonnement (Off-peak discount season ticket), Dal Voordeel (Off-peak discount) or Altijd Voordeel (Continual discount) are valid on weekdays during off-peak hours, and all day on the weekend and on public holidays.


Keuzedagen are valid during off-peak hours. The off-peak hours are:

  • weekdays between 09:00 and 16:00 and between 18:30 and 06:30.
  • At the weekend and on holidays, Keuzedagen are valid all day long

The moment you check in determines whether or not you are travelling with a Keuzedag. If you check in during off-peak hours, then check out during peak hours, then you are still using your Keuzedag. If you check in during peak hours and check out during off-peak hours, then you are travelling on your card balance.  
If you switch to a train operated by a different carrier, then you must first check out from NS and then check in with the other carrier, or vice versa. If you check in during off-peak hours and switch to another carrier during peak hours, this means that your journey continues on your card balance.

All Keuzedagen are valid for 1 year

Good to know

  • If you travel with the Intercity direct, then you must pay a supplement for the section between Rotterdam and Schiphol.
  • If you do not use a Keuzedag, it will expire after the expiration date.
