NS Group tickets extended until 31st March 2014

As the clock struck midnight last night I had wondered what the fate of the NS Group ticket would be.

NS group ticket

As it turns out, NS have extended purchases until 31st March 2014 and tickets must be used by 31st May 2014. There is the exception that it cannot be used on 26th April 2014, which is King's Day (a national holiday in The Netherlands).

Credit to them that they haven't raised the price of the ticket either, as they made a unilateral price hike on other tickets for the new year.

Updated terms and conditions (with the help of Google Translate) below, and tickets can be bought here:

– NS Group Return on weekdays valid after 9:00 am and weekends (Saturday and Sunday) throughout the day. On King's Day (26 April 2014) the Group Return is not valid.

  1. Hi there!

    This is Shawn from Singapore and I have chanced upon this excellent deal for the NS group return ticket. I am interested in travelling from Eindhoven to Amsterdam central for 16 people on the 4th of April. Is there any way I can take advantage of it since I am a foreigner?

    Thank you so much!
