Important Facts:

You can buy tickets from the yellow machines with either coins or Credit Card. The machine menus are in Dutch and English. In Dutch these cards are called “OV-chipkaart”

You can either buy a disposable paper OV-chipkaart, or a plastic reusable one. The paper version is handy if you just want to take a single trip to your destination. If you plan to travel by train more frequently during your stay, it may be more economical to choose the plastic OV-Chipkaart. If you would like to have further information please visit: https://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/home-1.htm or the official Dutch train site to plan your trip or to get information concerning the different ticket possibilities: http://www.ns.nl/en
