What you should know about the Day Tickets
The day ticket gives you unlimited access to the Dutch train system for one day. You use the day ticket to check in before entering the train, and to check out after getting off. Not only does the ticket give you access to the trains of Dutch Railways, you can also make use of other Dutch operators like Arriva, Blauwnet, Breng and Connexxion. However, you cannot use the day ticket outside of the Netherlands or for the Thalys. From Monday to Friday, the day ticket is only valid in off-peak hours. This means you cannot use the day ticket between 6:30 and 9:00 or between 16:00 and 18:30. The time of your check in is decisive. In the weekend, you can use the day tickets the entire day.
Are you planning to use the ICE or Intercity Direct train?
If you wish to use the ICE train or the Intercity Direct train, there might be additional costs. The ICE is the German high-speed train. If you wish to use this train within the Netherlands, you are required to pay a small fee. Normally, this is also the case for the Intercity Direct train between Schiphol Airport and Rotterdam. However, until the 8th of April, the Intercity Direct train is free of additional charges in the weekend. During the week, the Intercity Direct train is only free of additional charges in the off-peak hours (9:30 to 19:00).
