Altijd Voordeel try-out during peak hours
From 17 September to 16 December, we will offer a temporary discount for Altijd Voordeel season ticket holders who travel with NS during the morning peak hours. That means you can travel with a 40% discount for an extra 1.5 hours in the morning, and during the try-out period you can travel with a 60% discount between 11:00 and 15:00. That should make it more attractive to travel outside of the busiest peak periods during the day.
What does this mean for you?
- Normally, the morning peak hours are from 06:30 to 09:00, and during this period you can travel with a 20% discount. For the rest of the day (except for the evening peak period), you receive a 40% discount on your travels with NS.
- For the try-out period, you can travel with a 20% discount from 07:30 to 08:30, and for the rest of the day (except for the evening peak period), you receive a 40% discount on your travels with NS.
- During the try-out period, you will also receive a 60% discount between 11:00 and 15:00.
- Season ticket holders need not sign up for the try-out period; your discount will be calculated automatically when you travel.
- The evening peak hours will remain unchanged. You will still receive a 20% discount between 16:00 and 18:30.
- The weekend discount of 40% will remain unchanged.
- The try-out period applies only to NS trains. The extra discount will not apply to other rail carriers.
- The Altijd Voordeel season ticket Terms and Conditions will remain unchanged.
What is the reason behind this try-out period?
Due to the number of passengers between 07:30 and 08:30, the trains are more crowded during this period. We would therefore like to know if measures such as adding extra trains or changing the rates for travel during this period would help alleviate the problem. We have therefore decided to study whether offering an extra discount will help reduce crowding on these trains.
Only for Altijd Voordeel season ticket holders with NS
This try-out period is temporarily available for anyone who travels with NS using a monthly and/or annual Altijd Voordeel season ticket. You need not sign up or download the discount at a ticket machine. The Terms and Conditions that apply to your Altijd Voordeel season ticket (the Consumer Season Ticket Product Terms and Conditions) still apply to the Altijd Voordeel season ticket.
