Buy Dutch train tickets online
Commuters can now save some time by purchasing train tickets online.THE NETHERLANDS – Train tickets are now on sale over the internet in a trial period as of Tuesday, says the Dutch Railway.
The company says the launch of an e-ticket is brought by a considerable demand for such a service.
People who purchase an e-ticket on http://www.ns.nl/eticket/ticket will be asked to provide their name and date of birth at the time of purchase. Train conductors who check the tickets on the trains will ask for proof of identity to prevent fraud.
Dutch Railway also says it wants to encourage travellers to use more trains outside the rush hours by offering cheaper off-peak tickets.
