I'm planning to go from the Eindhoven Centraal to the Den Haag Centraal on a sunday (6th February). I was searching for the train ticket price and I found a site that said a discount fare ticket was 28€. Is that true? Is there a cheapest way to go from Eindhoven to Den Haag? I think 28€ is just to much.
Thank you :)
What site did you look on? The Dutch railways do not have such a thing as a "discount fare".
According to www.ns.nl (the railway's website) the price of a single ticket from Eindhoven to Den Haag is 18,40 euro. You can get it cheaper if you have a "voordeeluren kaart" and travel outside of the peak hours. But I asume you don't have such a card.
This ticket you just buy from a ticket machine at the station before boarding the train.
According to the Dutch Railways website www.ns.nl a single fare ticket second class is € 18,00 (from a ticket machine).
For a discounted fare you do need a so called "Voordeelurenkkaart"(Off peak discount pass):
@GyuriFT: My understanding was that Railplus reduction was only given on true international tickets, ie. tickets that cross a border (or from border points), but not on domestic tickets, even if they are calculated with the TCV tariff.
Thank you very much, that was such a big help!
By the way, can you tell me the price of a train ticket from Den Haag Centraal to Amsterdam Centraal?
One way full fare: € 10,10
According to the Dutch Railways website www.ns.nl a single fare ticket second class from Den Haag Centraal to Amsterdam Centraal is € 10,20 (from a ticket machine).
The best way to find accurate fares is to look at the official railway website for any particular European country. All have English pages.
In this case you should be looking at:
ns.nl/reisplanner-v2/index.s... (the English version of the site mentioned above).
where you will also find fares (none of which are anywhere near 28 euro...have you been using another site such as Raileurope, perhaps?)
