Is there a list of which public holidays and additional days where weekend vrij is valid? For example, Good Friday is not a holiday but weekend vrij can still be used that day.

With Weekend Vrij, you can only travel for free on Saturdays, Sundays and the days that are mentioned below “Which national holidays are recognised by NS?”.

Only the Voordeeluren season ticket used to give additional discount during the months of July and August, between Christmas and New Year's day, and on the Friday after Ascension day, but as of January 1, 2021 that is no longer the case. The text should be removed to avoid confusion, since there are now no subscriptions that give additional discount during those periods.

But it’s not clear. It mentioned “ In some situations, the discount will also apply during the months of July and August, between Christmas and New Year's day, and on the Friday after Ascension day “, does it mean the whole months of July and August? 27-31 of December is not included in the bullet points, so can the sub be used then?

Thank you for the answer! I agree, part of it needs to be updated to avoid confusion.

Good Friday is an official public holiday, however most people don't have a day off. Whether you have a day off on a specific public holiday is company dependent, there is no law that makes it mandatory for employers to give their employees a day off on public holidays.

There are basically very few other holidays here in NL and also we dont do things like ´´bank holiday´. Also there is NO extra day off when a moveable holiday is a sat or sun-many other countries do.

The basics should show no surprise: 1/1, 25+26/12, 2nd Paas=Easter and Pinkster=Pentecost day (both MON and no fixed date), as you say Good Friday, which is for many dutch NOT a day-off, Hemelvaart (was yesterday, 10 days on Thursday before Pentecost) and of course Kings day=27/4-quite a surprise as NS does not accept any other special cheap tix on that day-as in normal times demand far outstretches supply-to the case that often stations are closed off for any latecomers.

The main difference in what we do NOT have here is 1/5=the international workers labour day.
