Discount travel after Kids Vrij

With a Kids Vrij (Kids Free) season ticket, children under the age of 12 can accompany their parents for free anywhere you wish to travel. If your child is between the ages of 12 and 17 and regularly travels by train, then they might be able to save money with one of our NS Flex season tickets. Children cannot request a season ticket themselves, however; their parents need to do that for them. Read how below. Alternatively, you can opt for a Jongeren Dagkaart (Young Person's Day Ticket) for young people aged 12 to 18 years.

Request a season ticket for your child

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 may not request a season ticket themselves. They can only do that after they turn 18. But as a parent, you can request a season ticket for them. Since you'll be paying the monthly costs for your child's season ticket, we'll ask you for your details when you make the request.

How does it work?

  1. Select the season ticket for your child in our webshop.
  2. Click on 'Complete order'.
  3. li>In the 'Your details' tab, let us know that you're ordering a season ticket for your child by ticking the box for 'I'm ordering a season ticket for my child' at the top of the page.

Which season ticket for children aged 12 and up?

The NS season ticket that is best for your child depends on when and how often the child travels at the weekend, during peak hours, or along a selected route. We would be happy to help you find the best season ticket for your situation.

If you'd rather have your child travel on balance, then check out the Dal Voordeel op saldo (Off-peak Discount based on balance) season ticket. This is the only balance-based season ticket still available for sale.

Combined Travel Discount

If you will be travelling together with someone who has an NS season ticket or a student travel product, then your child can travel with you for a 40% discount during off-peak hours. To travel with a discount, your child must download the Samenreiskorting combined travel discount to his/her OV-chipkaart or purchase an e-ticket. The traveller with the NS season ticket or student travel product does not need to do anything extra.
