Travel using travel products

You can travel with your OV-chipkaart by purchasing a travel product or pass from an operator. Once you have loaded this product onto your card, you can use it to travel. If the product covers the entire cost of your journey, you will no longer need to load any credit. If it is a discount product, you will need to load credit onto your card alongside the travel product. See travel on credit.



Passes and travel products

  • Purchase pass or travel product from your operator.
  • Load the pass or travel product onto your OV-chipkaart.
  • Travel with a discount or at a fixed fare.



National travel products

The national travel products can be used with all operators. Where you can purchase the national travel product depends on the travel product.
