Recently graduated? Congratulations, and good luck with the journey ahead of you! NS has a gift for you: you can request our Dal Voordeel (Off-peak discount) season ticket for free. This will enable you to travel for a year at a 40% discount off-peak, during the weekends and on public holidays.

Graduate discount: find out how to apply

You can take the following steps to receive a discount after you have completed your studies:

  1. Stop your Studentenreisproduct [Student travel product] at the ticket machine.
  2. Request your free Dal Voordeel [Off-peak discount] subscription within six months after you have stopped your Studentenreisproduct.
  3. Use the following promotional code:
    • For ex-students: fill in the word 'exstudent', followed by the 16 digits of your OV-chipkaart, e.g.: EXSTUDENT1234123412341234.
    • For long-term students: fill in the word 'student', followed by the 16 digits of your OV-chipkaart, e.g.: STUDENT1234123412341234.
    • For young entrepreneurs: fill in the word 'zakelijk', followed by the 16 digits of your OV-chipkaart, e.g.: ZAKELIJK1234123412341234.
      Request your business subscription.

Please note: in the online shop, you can only fill in your promotional code at a later point in the ordering process. For ex-students or long-term students, this is on the page ‘Overzicht van uw bestelling’ (Overview of your order). If you opt for a business subscription, it's on the 'Controleren' (Check) page.

Using your OV-chipkaart number, the Regisseur Studenten Reisrecht will check whether a Studentenreisproduct has been listed under that number, and when you stopped using public transport as a student.
