Surcharges and ticket supplements
A surcharge applies to ICE International on the route between Amsterdam and Arnhem if you are not in the possession of a subscription for travelling with NS. The ticket supplement can be purchased with the yellow self-service ticket machines. The same applies for a surcharge for travelling with Albatros.
Please note: There is also a surcharge for Fyra. You can also buy the supplement ticket at the self-service ticket machines at the stations. You can recognise Fyra trains by their exterior, which is pink, purple and white and on which the word 'Fyra' is written.

Non-residents of the Netherlands
The self-service ticket machines only accepts Dutch debit cards or chipknip (an electronic cash system in the Netherlands). For non-residents of the Netherlands it is therefore only possible to pay using euro coins.
We therefore advise tourists and foreign business travellers who want to purchase tickets at the stations to use a Tickets & Service Office, which are only found at the larger train stations.
