You can buy it at an NS ticketing machine or service desk. Single-use chipcards always cost 1 euro more per trip. You don’t have to charge credit to the card but you do have to check in and out. If you plan to use the train more often while staying in The Netherlands, we recommend buying an ‘anonymous OV-chipkaart’.
