In the Netherlands many people use a public transport card called the ‘OV-Chipkaart’. This card can be used on the train, bus, tram and metro services. There is no separate OV-Chipkaart for tourists. As a tourist you will purchase an anonymous OV-Chipkaart or a disposable OV-Chipkaart.

You can buy an OV-Chipkaart at a counter or device at airports, at stations and at newsagents or supermarkets. A disposable card can also be bought at the tram or bus.
