To cut your expenditure on trains
, which can be quite expansive in the Netherlands, check out the website
, which contains information about all discounts on train tickets and chain stores (Hema, Kruidvat, Albert Heijn, Blokker etc.) that sell them. A daily train ticket with unlimited number of rides will cost you more than 50 euros at its full price. If you manage to use one of the discounts, though, it is possible to get the same ticket for only 15-20 euros. Within one day you can easily visit a few cities that you find pleasant and even go to the seaside after the tour without hurting your wallet too much.
Another useful website would be Goedkooptreinkaartj
. This website is in Dutch, so you might need to use the automatic translation function in Google. There you have an option to choose any discount you like and purchase a voucher. You can then exchange the voucher for a ticket on Dutch railroad website NS.nl
and download the ticket onto your phone.
Though, if you feel comfortable riding a bike, then it is undoubtedly the best way to travel between and in Dutch cities.
