Single train tickets
Fares & public transport
Going by train only once in a while?
To travel by train you can use your OV-chipkaart or you can use a paper ticket for the train.
Pay with your OV-chipkaart
With the OV-chipkaart you can pay for public transport. You can credit your card with a balance in euros, or with a travel product such as a season ticket.
Your OV-chipkaart has to be activated for travelling by train, before the first time it is used. One of the reasons is that you have to indicate whether you are travelling first class or second class. This can be don at the self-service ticket machine.
A paper ticket
You can still buy a paper ticket for the train at the self-service ticket machine.
If you travel up and down the same route on the same day, you have to purchase a return ticket. If you will not return the same day, you need to buy a one-way ticket product. If you visit several places on the same day, you should buy a ticket stating via which destination(s) you will be travelling.
For a maximum of three children aged 4 to 11 accompanied by an adult. It can also be loaded on the personal OV-chipkaart of the child. Price per child
