    How do I buy a Railrunner?

    You can buy a Railrunner as an individual ticket on a personal or anonymous OV-chipkaart or as a single-use OV-chipkaart at any NS ticket machine or service counter. You can also order an e-ticket online. Download and print the e-ticket, and take it with you on board the train.

    Is a Railrunner valid on international trains too?

    Your child can travel with a Railrunner without paying a supplement on journeys by Intercity Berlin and ICE International in the Netherlands, and likewise on Intercity direct. Railrunner tickets are not valid on Thalys.

    How can I buy a personal or anonymous OV-chipkaart?

    You can order a personal OV-chipkaart online, put money on it and individual products, including a Railrunners. Personal OV-chipkaarten are personal and non-transferable. If lost or stolen, your balance will be protected within 24 hours and you will get your balance back.

    You can buy anonymous OV-chipkaarten at all NS service points and all OV-chipkaart outlets. Use the address finder to find out where all your local outlets are.

    Anonymous OV-chipkaarten cannot be blocked. You can put money on them and individual products like a Railrunner, for example.

    I’d like to see my child onto the train at a station where the gates are closed. Can I do that?

    Yes, even if the access gates are in use. Check in with your OV-chipkaart; if you then check out again within one hour, the boarding fare will be refunded.

    Can I alter my e-ticket?

    No, after completing your purchase it is unfortunately no longer possible to alter your e-ticket. So do be careful to enter the correct personal and journey details. E-tickets are issued personally, and only valid in combination with a valid proof of identity.
