Amsterdam train tickets

Train tickets can be purchased from counters at train stations, ticket vending machines (with coins or ATM/Credit cards) and via a website. A standard return ticket is only valid on the same day. It is possible to buy travel passes for unlimited travel with trains, buses, trams and metros over a certain period.

Note that the difference between first and second class travel in trains is negligible, although first class could be more comfortable during rush hour, when trains tend to be overcrowded.

There is a hefty fine for travelling on the train without a valid ticket.
