    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.

    Ik wil mijn kind begeleiden richting de trein op een station waar de poortjes gesloten zijn, kan dat?

    Dat kan, ook als de poortjes in gebruik zijn. U checkt in met uw OV-chipkaart en als u binnen een uur weer uitcheckt, ontvangt u het instaptarief terug.
