You might like to consider the following four tips on cheaper travelling by train throughout the Netherlands:
1. Singles and Cheap Day Returns (Enkele reis en Dagretour)
Always rememeber that it is much cheaper to buy a Day Return than two singles.
So if you know beforehand that your return journey takes place on the same day as your outward yourney, go definitely for “Dagretour”.
2. Day Travel Card (Dagkaart) for Euro 38.70
This card allows you unlimited travel around the country in the space of one day. For 4.50 euro extra, you can use other forms of public transport too, such as the bus, metro, or tram (this is called an OV Dagkaart).
3. Weekend Return (Weekendretour)
A Weekend Return is the same as a Cheap Day Return, except that it is valid for longer. For the price of a day return you can make your journey between 7 pm on Friday evening and 4 am the following Monday morning.
4. Summer trip (Zomertoer)
However, a particularly attractive deal is this summer ticket which enables you unlimited three-day travel for two by trein anywhere within the Netherlands for only Euro 69.00. The limit is that it is available only between 1 July and 9 September, however allows you three days of train travel over a period of ten consecutive days. So, you travel with your parter, each pay Euro 34.50 and can make 3 trips there and back anywhere in the NL. Make thus for instance a lovely journey from Groningen to faraway Maastricht and back just for about Euro 11!
