Rotterdam, Netherlands: Pay metro ticket according to your nationality


Hello all,
I got to know all this recently as a close relative  is a fresh full time student in Holland. It seems that non Dutch students have to pay for the tickets public transport where as the Dutch ones move free of charge … The natural implication is that students don’t have the same rights in Holland depending on their nationality.

Also in several local retail services (i.e. request credit cards issued ONLY from Dutch banks…never seen this before in Europe or elsewhere in the world!!

To me all this it does not look at all aligned to the spirit of EU…or am I wrong?
