I want my Keuzedagen on a single-use, paper OV-chipkaart
Starting on 1 March 2022, NS stopped offering paper Keuzedagen (Optional Days). It is therefore no longer possible to order new Keuzedagen with your former Off-peak discount season ticket. if you already had paper Keuzedagen before 1 March 2022, then you can keep these and they will be extended automatically.
