Types of OV-chipkaarten

  • Anonymous OV-chipkaart: you can easily purchase one from one of the points of sale on Texel (Primera Mets, de Koog or Den Helder counter). For a complete overview, please visit www.ov-chipkaart.nl/service-en-contact/servicepuntenzoeker
  • Personal OV-chipkaart: You can purchase one via www.ov-chipkaart.nl. A big advantage of this card is that it allows you to choose for automatic credit charging.  When you turn on 'automatic charging' on your OV-chipkaart, your credit will be checked during check-in and check-out. Is it too low to travel or check out with? Then your credit will be automatically recharged. Very handy! This OV-chipkaart is also required if you want a subscription.


OV-chipkaart for students

The national student subscriptions are also valid in the mini and big Texelhopper buses. You will have to check in and out to activate it.
