You can buy a rail pas for 76 euro at almost any train station. They have vending machines. Anyone can buy it. You don’t have to have the Belgian nationality.
On the ticket you see ten lines. You can fill in this lines with a pen. The point is to pick any two Belgian train stations and you can travel between them for 7,6 euro. So you can travel from Oostende near the coast all the way to some village in the Ardennes. Several people can use the same ticket. So theoretically a group of ten people can make the same journey with this one ticket.
If you are younger than 26 it’s even cheaper. It’s at least 20 euro cheaper then. So one trip between any two Belgian stations will set you back only about 5 euro. When you use the ticket for people younger than 26 they will ask you to show some identification to check if you are really younger than 26.
If you pay the normal price it will be A LOT more expensive -unless it’s a very short trip, like less than 40 kms -, so buying a rail pas really pays off.
The ticket is valid for one year.
You can see an example in the picture.
Treat us to a cup of coffee
It's a great joy and honor to be able to create content for our readers. It's nothing short of a calling and if it would not be rewarding we would of course not be doing it. That being said it's also true that it sure doesn't come easy. Thousands and thousands of hours go into providing this website for you. Countless hours of research, reading, studying, discussions, brainstorms, some heated arguments between the driving forces behind this site about the content offered. Honestly, this website costs blood, sweat and tears. Ok, maybe not blood, but plenty of sweat and tears. It’s not cheap either. It’s safe to say that this site is like a full-time job on top of our regular jobs. So what we are asking is this: If you’ve had some fun on our site, you could spread some joy of your own and support us. We are hell bent on improving the quality of this site. If you treat us to just one (hopefully more than one) cup of coffee (3€) we will feel energized to raise the bar. Every donation will strictly be used to improve this website. So no, we won’t actually buy coffee. Thank you very much! PS Yes, this is a picture of Zuzi.
