The answer to your question...

Paying without iDEAL

Are you unable or unwilling to pay for a train ticket via iDEAL? Then 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.

Corrective fees

If you forget to check in or out with your Traject Vrij season ticket or NS-Business Card, we cannot calculate the price of your journey. In this case, we will charge a corrective fee, which may differ per season ticket. All corrective fees are billed via the invoice.
