I am a turist coming to Amsterdam in July and I was wondering if it is possible with the Amsterdam Travel Ticket (https://www.ns.nl/producten/en/uitleg-overige-producten/p/amsterdam-travel-ticket) to go from Amsterdam Centraal to Koog-Zaandijk?
I would like to visit Zaanse Schans, but do not know if this ticket (that includes all trains, trams, metros of GVB) also includes this trip or if I need to buy it separately?
I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me with this matter!
Dank je wel!!

You can purchase an anonymous OV card for €7,50 (non-refundable), and it is valid with all operators. You have to have a positive money balance (more than €0) on your card to be able to travel in public transport, and you need a minimum of €20 on the card if you want to travel by train (although it is often cheaper to use other public transport instead, even though that might take a little longer).
If, at the end if your travels, you have balance on your card, you can get the amount-€2,50 service fee back at a service point.
