  • Temporary one free upgrade to 1st class.

What do I get with NS Extra?

  • Special offers
    For example, last year we gave away free upgrades to 1st class, a special discount on the purchase of a Meereiskaart or day return ticket, and free treats at La Place and Julia’s.
  • The check-out alert service
    If you forget to check out at your destination, then you will automatically receive an e-mail with a link to help you fix the problem quickly and easily.
  • Benefits especially for you
    We will let you know when something changes on your regular route, or on the railway network in your area, for example.

What your fellow travellers have to say

More than 700,000 have already signed up for NS Extra. This is what they had to say about our latest offers:

  • "What a great idea! It makes me feel appreciated as a customer of NS."
  • "I'm kept informed about the route I travel often. Of course, I'd read it somewhere else before, but the reminder is very attentive."
  • "Good, cheap way to visit a friend who lives in another part of the country."

Temporary free upgrade to 1st class

Sign up for NS Extra and receive a free 1st class upgrade. You pay for a 2nd class journey, but travel in 1st-class comfort and style. The NS Extra Welcome Mail explains how to use the free upgrade.
