Mortsel exception:
If the traveller has a ticket (apart from a Local Multi) departing from or arriving at Mortsel, Mortsel-Liersesteenweg, Mortsel-Oude God or Mortsel-Deurnesteenweg, they may board or alight the train at one of the other aforementioned stations, with no further formalities.

However, a “Mortsel zone” does not exist and the used ticket therefore does not permit them to travel freely between these stations as they wish.
  • When your departure station and your arrival station are located in 2 different zones:

    You travel between these 2 zones (single ticket: 1 journey; return ticket: 1 outward journey and 1 return journey).
    You can get on and off at any station within these 2 zones during the day for which your ticket is valid.

  • If your departure station and your arrival station are in the same zone:

    You can get on and off at any station within that zone during the day for which your ticket is valid. To travel these routes within the same zone, it is best to choose the Standard Ticket one-way (you do not need to buy a return ticket).
  • Looking for parking close to your station? By presenting your train ticket you can take advantage of an attractive discount on the cost of parking. Information and conditions relating to SNCB parking.
