    Do I still need to check in and out with a Day return on my OV-chipkaart?

    Yes, you must always check in and out with a Day return on a single-use smart card.

    You need to do this to be eligible for a refund if you are delayed. Unless you check in and out as you should, you will not be eligible for a refund if you are delayed.

    Is a Day return cheaper than buying 2 singles?

    A return costs the same as 2 single journeys, but you pay a € 1 surcharge twice if you buy 2 single journeys on a single-use smart card, but only once if you buy a return.

    Can I travel more than once on the same day with a Day return?

    No, that is not allowed.
