How do I download my Keuzedagen?

Before you can use a Keuzedag, you must download it to your OV-chipkaart at an NS Ticket Machine.


How to download Keuzedagen

  1. Bring your OV-chipkaart to an NS Ticket Machine at the station.
  2. Hold the OV-chipkaart against the card reader to the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Select ‘download Keuzedag’.
  4. Select ‘agree’.
  5. Hold the OV-chipkaart against the card reader again, until confirmation that the product has been downloaded to the card.

Please note: the next journey you make will be considered as a Keuzedag. Due to the extended use-by date for Keuzedagen, there may be more than one Keuzedag available at the NS Ticket Machine. Checking in and out is also required for Keuzedagen.  

  • Would you like to check whether your Keuzedag has been downloaded?

    Hold the OV-chipkaart against the card reader to see if your Keuzedag has been downloaded to the OV-chipkaart. If the Keuzedag has not been downloaded, and you have checked in to travel on balance, please hold the OV-chipkaart against the card reader again to cancel the check-in. You can then download the Keuzedagen to the chipkaart at an NS Ticket Machine by following the instructions above.

  • Would you like to travel 1st class with your Keuzedagen?

    If you'd rather travel in 1st class, you can purchase a 2-1 supplement for € 5 from an NS Ticket machine. Make sure to download your Keuzedag before purchasing the 2-1 supplement.

    Purchasing the 2-1 supplement:

    1. Place your OV-chipkaart against the card reader of an NS Ticket machine.
    2. First select 'change class', before selecting '2-1 supplements.'
    3. Select your preferred travel date and pay for the supplement.
    4. Place your OV-chipkaart against the card reader again.
    5. Your 2-1 supplement has now been charged to your card for the selected day (valid until 04:00 on the following day).

    Please note: when you check in, you will see 2nd class on the display, but the conductor will be able to see that you purchased a 1st class supplement.
