  • How to buy
  • You purchase a Holland Travel Ticket as a single-use smartcard from an NS ticket machine or an NS Tickets & Service Desk at the station.
  • Smart Ticket
  • Smart ticket: OV-chipkaart

    The ticket is a single-use smart ticket (called an OV-chipkaart). Use it to check in at the start of your journey, and to check out at the end of every trip. 

    Checking in and out

    Hold your card up to the free-standing pole or gate to check in for your train journey; then repeat the process to check out again when you reach your destination. You need to check in and out with each operator, i.e. if you change to bus, tram or metro. You must also check out at an NS card reader before checking in with another operator. If you are travelling out of the country, you do not need to check in or out in the Netherlands.

  • Frequently asked questions
  • Who is the Holland Travel Ticket for?

    The Holland Travel Ticket is intended for foreign tourists, but anybody can use one (i.e. Dutch people might use it as well).

    Is a Holland Travel Ticket also valid in Intercity direct, Thalys and/or ICE?

    The same rules apply to a Holland Travel Ticket as to an ordinary NS day return. It is not valid on Thalys and can only be used on the Intercity direct and ICE if you purchase a supplement.

    How do I use a Holland Travel Ticket to travel?

    Travelling with a Holland Travel Ticket is the same as travelling with an ordinary single-use smartcard. You check in and out with each separate carrier.
