Travelling with the NS-Business Card

The NS-Business Card is an excellent alternative for people with a visual impairment who have to travel for work.


With the NS-Business Card you pay your travel expenses and any season ticket charges using direct debit. The service and the direct debit is carried out by the Serviceloket OV Blinden & Slechtzienden. You will be charged on a monthly basis, approximately 1.5 months after the end of the month in which the journeys were made.

How does the NS-Business Card work?

With the NS-Business Card, you are required to check in and out when you travel. If you cannot do so, or if something goes wrong, then the OV Service Desk for the Visually Impaired will correct the problem for you. You will then be refunded for the extra amount paid over what you owed for the ticket.
