Discounted City Public Transport for Children and Oldsters in Netherlands

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to figure out the city public transport pricing (not the trains) in the Netherlands. I am cross-eyed from reading all the various websites.

From what I can tell, if I want discounted travel for my 9-year-old-daughter and 80-year-old parents-in-law, I have to buy hourly tickets. The OV chipcards do not offer discounts unless you buy the personal ones - which don't work for tourists.

Can we buy discounted hourly tickets from the tram driver? Are the 1-day tickets also discounted? The GVB website says there is a discount, but doesn't say how much. Can we pay with a non-chipped credit card on the tram? Do we have to have exact change if not? Can we buy several hourly tickets at one time to use throughout the week?

Thanks in advance for any info.
