Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between NS Flex and the NS-Business Card?
NS Flex
NS Flex is our subscription for consumers. You travel on account and therefore do not need to add any balance to your card. You check in and out with your OV-chipkaart.
Read all about NS Flex
NS-Business Card
The NS-Business Card is our mobility card for business travellers. Also with the NS-Business Card you travel on account and do not need to add any balance to your card. You can place various business subscriptions on your NS-Business Card.
Here are four key benefits of an NS Business Card
  • Invoicing including VAT
  • Flexible payment term of 30 days to suit your organisation
  • You travel door-to-door with one card. Simply switch from bus to train, from metro to OV-bike, and from tram to shared car. Or use your NS-Business Card to park your car at a P+R car park and continue your journey by public transport. All costs appear afterwards on a invoice.

Traveling with the free NS-Business Card. How does it work?
You order and use an NS-Business Card for free. You pay nothing for the card. And if you do not travel (and therefore do not use the card), you pay nothing either.
With our card you can travel by train, bus, tram and metro. And - if your employer gives permission - you can use our other door-to-door services, such as a Greenwheels shared car, OV-fiets or Check's electric scooter.
You travel on account, so you do not have to pay anything up front. Your employer will receive a monthly invoice for your travel.
More on the NS-Business Card
Which business subscriptions can I choose from?
Go to our subscriptions overview page.
Do I need to add balance on my NS-Business Card?
No, in contrast to the OV-chipkaart you do not need to top up your balance on an NS-Business Card. Your organisation will receive an invoice every month for your travel.
Please do not try to add any balance to your NS-Business Card. It could render your card unusable.
What are the benefits of a Dal subscription for me?
During off-peak hours you get a 40% discount on your train journeys. Do you, like 90% of all business travellers, sometimes travel outside peak hours or at the weekend? You'll save money with only 1 trip per month!
Example
Suppose you travel once a month from The Hague CS to Amersfoort and back during off-peak hours. You will save €8.28 with the Dal subscription.
Without the Dal subscription
  • € 32.40 for the ticket
  • € 0.00 fixed monthly costs
  • € 32.40 total monthly costs
With the Dal subscription
  • € 19.44 for the ticket
  • € 4.68 fixed monthly costs
  • € 24.12 total monthly cost

Deducting VAT on business, commuting or private travel expenses
Business travel expenses
You can always deduct VAT on business expenses such as business transportation and business travel.
Commuting expenses
You cannot always reclaim VAT on your commuting expenses, as transportation plans and subscriptions are considered benefits in kind. You can reclaim VAT on subscriptions with a maximum price of € 227 per year. This is lower than the average price of a subscription. This is all governed by the Input Tax Deduction (Exclusion) Decree. It always pays to discuss your situation with your tax advisor.
Private travel expenses
This includes public transport tickets and employees using their private vehicles. Employees using company vehicles for private purposes are subject to VAT rules. For more information, visit the website of the Dutch Tax & Customs Administration or consult your tax advisor.
