Experience the convenience of NS Flex!

NS Flex is the new all-in-one package for all public transport. With NS Flex you can travel on account by train, bus, tram, metro and OV-fiets. You can also pay for bicycle storage after using it. You can check in and out, and no longer need to load any balance on your OV-chipkaart.

Do you frequently travel by train? Then add one of the season tickets, which you can cancel or change on a months notice, to get more discounts. All costs will be charged by NS on a monthly basis and you pay by direct debit.

The benefits of NS Flex

  • Travel on account on all public transport, so no more topping up balance.
  • Choice of various season tickets that you can change monthly.
  • The option to change classes when boarding the train.
  • Always have insight into your travel history and costs via Mijn NS.
  • You receive a monthly bill.

How does it work?

You can choose NS Flex Basis or one of the NS Flex season tickets. With NS Flex Basis you can travel on account on all public transport and you do not have to pay any season ticket fees. You will not get a discount on your journeys. If you would you like to benefit from a discount, then you should choose an NS Flex season ticket. In addition, with NS Flex you can choose to change your season ticket monthly, or to revert back to NS Flex Basis. Simply do this in Mijn NS. Handy in if you plan to travel more or less for a month, or at different times. This way, you can make sure that your season ticket suits your current travel habits.

Simple insight into your costs

The costs for a journey can be viewed in Mijn NS one day later. This allows you to easily view and check your travel expenses. You know exactly how much you will be charged each month, so you no longer get any unwelcome surprises!

You can even upgrade to 1st class during your journey

NS Flex is set to 2nd class as standard. If you would like some rest and additional comfort after a long day, or if you see that it's just a little too busy in 2nd class, NS Flex allows you to choose to change classes even though you already boarded the train. You can change to 1st class in Mijn NS up to 15 minutes after checking in.

You can swap classes by logging in to Mijn NS. If you swap, your new class is valid until 04.00 the next day. The correct price for your chosen class will appear automatically on your monthly invoice.
