NS uses various rates for passengers. We keep you informed of changes to rates. Below, you can read more about what you can do in case of corrective fees, fines, deferred payment and paying online.

The answer to your question...

Paying without iDEAL

Are you unable or unwilling to pay for your train ticket iDEAL? In that case, you can use your credit card or call NS Customer Service.

Deferred payments

If you don't have a valid ticket in the train, the conductor or Security & Service assistant will sell you a ticket and collect the legal fine of € 50. If you cannot pay in cash on the spot, then you will be granted deferred payment if you can provide proof of identification.

Correction fee and boarding fee

If we don't know which stations you boarded or left the train, for example because you forgot to check in or out and didn't correct it in time, then we will charge you a correction fee or a boarding fee. See which situation applies to you.


Fares for the various train tickets and season tickets change every year on 1 January. The prices of train tickets will also be adjusted in 2022. See the overview for the price changes that will take effect from 1 January 2022.
