Discount travel after Kids Vrij

With a Kids Vrij season ticket, children under the age of 12 can accompany you for free anywhere you wish to travel. But the season ticket expires automatically when your child reaches the age of 12. If your child travels regularly by train, consider purchasing one of the other season ticket options shown here.
