Discount off your season travel pass
<Voeg een paragraaftitel toe>
Are you a new travel pass holder or do you want to extend your travel pass? Then check whether you are eligible for a discount.
1. Family discount (only for Buzzy Pazz)
If you purchase several annual travel passes with the same start date for the same family, the second child in the family will receive a 20% discount. For a third annual travel pass and on you will only be charged 53 euro. On travel passes for 1 or 3 months respectively with the same start date, you will be given 20% discount from the second travel pass.
Do you want to benefit from the family discount? Then you must provide us with a a recent family composition attestation (maximum 2 months old). You can contact the Population department of your municipality for this. It is important that this is a valid family composition attestation, i.e. with a municipal stamp on it. By family we mean all family members that officially live at the same address.
You do not have to submit a family composition attestation if you buy the travel pass online. Attention: If you want to enjoy the family discount and buy your travel passes online, then you must order all the travel passes at the same time. Only then will the family discount be awarded.
If you want to apply for another travel pass later and want to benefit from the correct family discount, you must apply at a Lijnwinkel or via the Travel pass department. In both cases you must give us a family composition attestation.
Expansion of family discount for joint custody families
Since 1 July 2008 joint custody families have the right to a family discount for the Buzzy Pazz. That means that you, as the applicant, can buy Buzzy Pazzes with the family discount for all children resident with you (classic application of the family discount) and for your own "natural" children who are not resident with you.
How to request the discount?
- a Buzzy Pazz application form
- a family composition attestation (children in your family)
- a birth certificate, proof of adoption or ‘legitimization certificate’ for your natural children that are not resident with you, together with the correct address of these children.
All these documents must be in Dutch. Documents in a foreign langugage must be translated by a sworn translator.
The Travel Pass Department of De Lijn will send the bank transfer form by post. Once we receive your payment we will send the travel passes to you. You can also take the bank transfer form to a Lijnwinkel. If you pay cash (cash or bank card) you will receive the travel passes right away.
Consult our General Conditions of Travel for detailed regulations about the family discount on the Buzzy Pazz ("Tickets for Travel chapter, section on "Non-magnetic travel passes", subsection "Discounted Travel Passes" and subsection "Sales Channels")).

2. Employer contribution
Do you use your travel passes for home-work travel? The normal employer contribution is 72% of the travel pass price. Some employers reimburse an even greater share of the travel pass price. Ask your employer about this.
3. Third party payer discount
Many cities and municipalities pay part of the cost of a travel pass via the third party payer system.
