I had a question about the cheap train tickets that are on Vakantie Veiligen ( €20 for 2x day tickets for weekends ).
Do I need to take the fastest route from station to station or am I allowed to make a detour ?
So for example, if I start in Amsterdam and need to go to Almere. Am I allowed to make a detour through Scheveningen if I need to pick something up? Or will I get in trouble if I get checked.

You need to take a route that is shown in the journey planner when you plan a journey from Amsterdam to Almere. This means that detours are not allowed; you may only interrupt your journey at an intermediate station on a route given by the journey planner.
Note that because of that these tickets aren't called “day tickets", but rather “one way tickets”. Actual day tickets do exist, but they are more expensive, see e.g. this offer.
