Eth0:2015 Winter train
By using NS groepsretour we can manage to keep significant amounts of money out of the hands of the NS and in your wallet.
This reduces the price from €22,-* to €7,- up to €13,75 † per person. There are no restrictions on your plans, except date and arrival station.
As the tickets are officially returntrips 'retourtjes' it is also possible to use another 'groepsticket' to get home from a common departure point, by only using the return trip portion ‡ .
