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.


Voordeelurenabonnement with digital Keuzedagen

  • You can check in on Mondays to Fridays between 04:00 and 06:30, and after 09:00 in the morning. Please note: you must check in with NS, not with another transporter. So if you check in with another transporter before 06:30, and transfer to NS during peak hours, then the Keuzedag ticket will not be valid.
  • The Keuzedag is valid all day during the following periods (including before 09:00 in the morning):
    • at the weekend;
    • on holidays;
    • during the summer months of July and August;
    • in the period from Christmas Day up to and including New Year's Day.

As of 2021

The new conditions will take effect as of 1 January 2021. These new conditions are: 

  • Keuzedagen will no longer be valid in morning peak hours, but will be valid in off-peak hours. Off-peak hours are weekdays from 09:00 to 16:00 and from 18:30 to 06:30.
  • All Keuzedagen will be valid for 1 year rather than 2 months.
