Public transport chip card
When you are staying in The Hague for more than 7 days it might be beneficial to buy a public transport chip card (ov chipkaart) instead of day tickets. With the public transport chipcard you only pay for the distance you actually travel, with a one way ticket you pay for the whole trip. The public transport chip card is a plastic card that lets you travel on credits. Travelling with a public transport chip card is very handy because it allows you to travel with all the carriers including the NS (Dutch railway). Customers can buy this card in our webshop for € 7,50. Customers can also load the card with credit before you arrive in The Hague.
