im wondering how i can buy an unlimited rail ticket with which we can travel freely by train for one day.
when i travelled in holland last year, my friend living in holland at that time bought two for me.
he said he bought it at a supermarket called HEMA and also said that its not always on sale.
im really interested in it coz my friend & i r gonna travel around in holland by train this time.
if smone has information for next sale of that train ticket, plz let me share ur info!!!
i do hope i can buy it online if its available.
The shops that are still selling so-called "dagkaart" are HEMA, Albert Heyn Supermarker (AH), Kruidvat and Blokker. From time to time they all have different actions.
I think the latest is a dagkaart only valid in the weekend for a certain period.
Let me check.
Yes KRUIDVAT is the shop that is offering now:
Travel period: Feb 9 - May 26 2013
Valid at: One day in the weekend; so only on a Saturday or a Sunday!
Website: http://www.kruidvat.nl/ (Treinkaartjes actie)
oh my gosh!!!
this is gonna be big help for us coz we r gonna use it on weekend!!!
if the ticket is valid on weekdays as well, itd be just fantastic!!!
ill be waiting for ur kind research result.
oh my gooooooooooooosh!!!
THANKS A LOT!
ill go to their website right after this!
THANKS ONE MORE TIME!!! :)))
sorry to disturb u again, but can we buy a ticket online?
i could go to the website u gave me and saw the offer they r giving us now, but no icon for purchase, or did i miss finding it?
is it only available at shops???
is the no. of tickets limited???
It's no on-line sales.
And the tickets are very popular. Sometimes I have to visit several shops if I don't buy them at the first days. Better tell your friend in Holland to buy 2 tickets. Be aware: Only valid for 1 day; only in the weekend (the KRUIDVAT oones).
I still have some tickets I bought at BLOKKER, but they last only a month from now, but you can travel with those on weekdays after 9AM too. As far as I can see, those are sold out :(
thats really sad to hear.
i do hope its gonna be more open for foreigners outside of holland in the near future too :)
but thank u for ur big help.
even if i cant get it, ur info is meaningful for us.
really kind of u, thanks one more time :)
You could also consider just to buy the tickets at the train station for the trip that you're gonna do....
ANY Dutch person knows Marktplaats-thats a 2nd hd goods sell-on online market and there all the tickets are for sale at a small mark up. BUT you have to deal in Dutch or (but then again it seems bad english is what the asker only knows), pay advance and trust that the ticket comes over. Many of the other tickets like Hema/Jumbo are NO tickets but secret codes, with which you have to selfprint the actual ticket-this avoids postage. ALL these tickets are NEVER valid before 9.00 weekdays
aha, i see. my friend living in holland bought 2 tickest for me to travel around, but he left holland & now living in us.... i just have vague info about it but it was a printed out version as u said, with my name & date of birth, or the date when i used it, etc... it would be great if that amazing opportunity were open for foreigners too, but unfortunately seems not now :(
but thanks for letting me share the info :)
It is very difficult to find such tickets online on direct bargains, there is only a changes that you can find it to the stores near a railways or some ticketing agencies. Hope this helps!! Cheers!
