    Are you going to take an international trip, then your Dagproduct is valid up until the border. If you are travelling back the same day, then your Dagproduct is still valid.

    You can book your trip from the departure station in the Netherlands to your final destination with one ticket. Are you entitled to a 100% discount* on the domestic route? Please indicate this while booking:

    • Via our website: select option '100% discount in the Netherlands'.
    • Via an NS ticket machine: select the option 'NS route free'.
    *Discount does not apply on Thalys and Eurostar trains.

    Then you will receive an international ticket which includes the 100% discount.

    On the day of travel check in using your Dagproduct for the domestic part of your journey. You need to do this to validate the Dagproduct of that day. You cannot check out at the station abroad.

    If you are using a Dagproduct on your trip, you do not have to leave the international train at the first station in the Netherlands to check in. The Train Manager on the international train will only check whether you are in possession of a Dagproduct and not if it has been activated. Are you getting off somewhere in the Netherlands? Register the use of your Dagproduct in the card reader at a post or gate at the International arrival station. When changing trains to a domestic train you are required to check in with the Dagproduct.
