  • Outward and return ticket
  • Valid on the day of vaccination
  • Valid only in 2nd class

Show your Vaccination Ticket and the confirmation of your vaccination appointment (paper, e-mail or SMS) with the date and time of your injection when the train conductor checks on board the train for the outward and/or return journey.

It is compulsory to wear a mask in the station, on the platforms and on board the train.

How to use?

Show your Vaccination Ticket and the confirmation of your vaccination appointment (paper, e-mail or SMS) with the date and time of your injection when the train conductor checks on board the train for the outward and/or return journey.
Yes, if you travel to or from Brussels Airport-Zaventem, this is also free with the Vaccination Ticket.
To travel in 1st class using your free Vaccination Ticket, you need to purchase an Upgrade.
Yes, but you must be in possession of a valid transport ticket specific to your bicycle (Bike Supplement).
Travelling with a folding bike is always free.

Please note that trains have limited capacity for accommodating bikes. The train conductor can refuse you access in case of overcrowding. That's why it is strongly recommended NOT to travel with a non-folding bike during the week at rush-hour periods (between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and between 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.)
Yes, of course. The offer of free assistance for passengers with reduced mobility can be accessed using all types of transport tickets.

Complete your request for assistance from your My SNCB account or using the online form.

In this case, you do not have a valid ticket and you must purchase an On-Board Fare ticket from the train attendant.
You can request a refund at the ticket office or by post upon presentation of your On-Board Fare ticket and your vaccination appointment, stating the date and time of your injection.

We are very sorry about any inconvenience caused by such a situation. However, the use of a free transport ticket does not provide entitlement to any compensation in case of delay or cancellation of a train.
A free transport ticket does not provide entitlement to any exchange or refund.
