Regional trains

Besides Intercity services and high-speed train connections, you can also travel across the border with domestic all-station trains. These connections are offered by domestic service providers.

All-stations train to Antwerp and Liège

You can travel from Roosendaal to Antwerp and from Maastricht to Liège once an hour with the Belgian railway service NMBS. For travelling via these connections we offer, besides the regular Flex tariff, also the following discounts:

  • Youth discount for travelers younger than 26 years that travel in 2nd class
  • Senior discount for travelers of 65 years and older that travel in 1st or 2nd class

Both discounts can be combined with your NS-subscription or RAILPLUS card, so that you receive the discount that you are entitled to with your subscription for the Dutch stretch. The tariffs can be booked online, via the NS International counter in the Service shop, by phone at the NS International Service Center or a travel agency. For the route Maastricht-Liège the so-called Euregio ticket is available, a special day ticket that allows you to travel through the entire Euregio.
