On the day train tickets...

questions:

1. do we buy a 'round trip' ticket, or just buy one to leave Antwerp and then another to leave Ghent?

2. are they set to a particular train or departure time, or just any train that day?

3. for tickets we buy to go from Antwerp to Ghent - - does one 'composte' these in a cancellation machine prior to boarding?

thanks!

On weekdays, whichever you like. A round trip ticket is simply 2 one-way tickets so the cost will be the same.

At weekends, a "Weekend (round trip) Ticket" is cheaper than 2 separate one-way tickets.

< are they set to a particular train or departure time, or just any train that day? >

They are valid for any train on a particular day but you cannot interrupt your journey en route (unless the train schedule forces you to change trains on the way).

No. You do that in France, but not Belgium.
