train travel within the Netherlands - confused!

Jump to last reply

We are planning a day trip from Amsterdam to The Hague. We plan to leave Amsterdam around 8 am so that we have a full day in The Hague. I see on www.ns.nl that direct trains go quite often but I'm confused about buying the tickets.

While in Amsterdam we expect to use trams only when we arrive and depart with luggage to deal with, other than that we plan to walk everywhere because we enjoy walking. Given that, we were just going to use a one hour pass each time and not get the OV-chipkaart for 7.50 euros. However, I now see that the OV-chipkaart is used for train travel also.

How does this work? Do I need to buy the OV-chipkaart to put the train tickets on it?
