In- en uitchecken
Uw medewerkers checken in en uit met de NS-Business Card. De kaart moet bij een incheckpaaltje of een poortje worden gehouden om in te checken voor de treinreis. Bij aankomst en het verlaten van de trein en het station doen ze hetzelfde om uit te checken. Dit moet bij elke vervoerder. Bij het reizen naar een buitenlandse bestemming is in- en uitchecken in Nederland niet nodig.
Er mogen maximaal 3 mensen met 40% korting op werkdagen na 9.00 uur en in het weekend met uw medewerker meereizen. Dit is eenvoudig te regelen bij de kaartautomaat op het station.
Het eenmalig of permanent van klasse wisselen is eenvoudig te regelen bij de kaartautomaat op het station.
What is travelling on account?
‘Travelling on account’ is the payment method used for the NS-Business Card. The services used are paid for after the event and there is therefore no need to have a credit balance on the card beforehand.
