Important information about ordering the Rotterdam Welcome Card

Check the measures to find out which strict conditions apply when you visit Rotterdam.

Most attractions and museums require online reservations for a specific day/time. Not all attractions and museums are set up online to redeem the discount you receive with the Rotterdam Welcome Card (RWC). Everyone is currently working hard to make this possible. If reservations can be made with the RWC discount, keep in mind that these locations currently have a limited capacity, which means that time slots are filled quickly.

How does it work?

The validity of this travel card starts on the day you first check in. The RET 1 day allows you to travel on the day the card is activated until 04:00 the following morning. The RET 2 days allows you to travel on the day the card is activated and the next day. The RET 3 days allows you to travel on the day the card is activated and the next two days. Note: the RET 1 day is not a travel card for 24 hours. You cannot travel with it from 11:00 on day 1 to 11:00 on day 2. (The RET 2 days is not a travel card for 48 hours and the RET 3 days is not a travel card for 72 hours.)

You should always check in and out with your travel card, even in transfer, because otherwise you will not have a valid ticket and risk a fine.

Please note: the travel card is not valid on the Fast Ferry, in the Waterbus or with other public transport companies. Travelling by train is not included in the City Card.
