You can order these supplements together with your season ticket.

Good to know

  • Delivery time

    You will receive your new personal OV-chipkaart for free with an annual season ticket. For a monthly season ticket, you will be charged a €7.50 for a new OV-chipkaart.

    Your new OV-chipkaart (with your season ticket) will be delivered to your home within one week.

    Season ticket within one day with an existing OV-chipkaart

    If you already have your own personal OV-chipkaart (with photograph), then enter the OV-chipkaart number when ordering your season ticket. You can then download your season ticket within one working day from an NS Ticket Machine. That way, you can travel with a discount right away!

  • Season ticket term

    You may choose from an annual season ticket or a season ticket that automatically expires after one month. An annual season ticket will save you more money in the long run.

    Annual season ticket

    After the first year, you can cancel your season ticket at the end of each month. 

    You can change your route at the end of each month if necessary, even during the first year of the season ticket. You also have the option of switching to a more expensive season ticket. 

  • Payment

    You pay for your season ticket on a monthly basis. You can pay the season ticket costs for the first month quickly and securely via your own bank using iDeal. Your first payment completes the order process and confirms your banking details.

    Subscription costs for an annual season ticket are automatically deducted from your bank account each month. If you would rather pay your season ticket costs with one lump sum, then you can pay the entire amount via iDeal.

    Travel outside your route 

    The costs for travel outside of your selected route will be billed at the end of the month. If you have a monthly season ticket, you will receive a separate invoice. If you have an annual season ticket, your travel costs will be debited from your account the end of the month along with your season ticket costs.

    No iDeal

    If you do not have iDeal, but you do have a personal OV-chipkaart, you can order a season ticket by telephone. NS Customer Service is available 24 hours per day.
