Starting today, users of the new transport app Gaiyo can plan, book and pay for their train journey. During off-peak hours and weekends, users receive a 10% discount on the train ticket throughout the year.
Gaiyo is the app for planned and unplanned travel. The app combines all types of transportation (including shared transportation) to provide the best travel advice, regardless of your location. Users can easily purchase a digital train ticket via the app. The ticket appears directly on the smartphone after purchase.
Discount and contactless payment Users of the app get a 10% discount on train tickets during off-peak hours and weekends. With a digital train ticket via Gaiyo you can avoid a busy queue at the ticket machine. Also, the conductor does not have to hold the train ticket, but can scan it at a suitable distance from the cell phone.
Pay afterwards and no surcharge One can start the trip immediately and only have to pay the travel costs afterwards. A personal Gaiyo account provides an overview of the travel history and outstanding costs. Furthermore, users do not pay a € 1 surcharge as with the NS ticket machine, but only € 0.50 cents transaction costs.
