No more day ticket/unlimited travel tickets for one day?

Hello,

NS.nl used to offer a ticket for unlimited train travel within one day. I believe it was about €50.

With the compulsory OV chipkaart, have they gotten rid of the unlimited card?

I've been scouring the website and am not finding anything.

It looks like they have totally revamped the price structure. It's mentioned that various "passes" can be added to a "permanent" chipkaart, but I haven't found a list of those. This link looks most relevant regarding ticket prices: https://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/reizen/.

I hope they didn't get rid of pairing them with an anonymous card.

You can still buy a "dagkaart" and have it loaded on an anonymous OV-Chipkaart. A 2nd class day card costs € 51. It gives free train travel for a whole day (technically, until 4AM the morning after you first validate it).

You need to check-in and check-out on totems or gates when you are taking your trips, you can't just check-in early in the morning and forget about checking out until you are done for the day, this will yield you a fine for improper use. So check-in and check-out everytime you complete a journey.

The public transportation day pass that gave unlimited national-wide rides on both trains and local trams/buses/subways has been abolished.
