By public transport

If you are travelling by train with either Arriva or the NS, children below the age of 4 travel for free. They also don’t need an OV-chipcard to travel. Children from the ages of 5 up to 11 can travel for free with an adult with a so called ‘Kids Vrij' ticket. For this ticket, the child needs a personal OV-chipcard. Per adult, 3 children can make use of this ticket.

If you are travelling by bus with Qbuzz, children up to the age of 3 can travel for free. Up to three children from the ages of 4 up to 11 can travel for free with one adult.
