bunq - Digital Bank Account
As you might know, you need a Dutch debit card to be able to pay everywhere in the Netherlands. Bunq makes sure that international students are able to pay anywhere in the Netherlands without any complications. This debit card will also enable you to place orders online via iDeal and pay through Tikkie, the Dutch way of paying in one click.
KPN - Mobile Sim-only
According to the EU fair trade policy, if you are in another country more than you are in your home country, you will get charged above your normal rate. If you’re from outside the EU, any use of your mobile phone number from your current country, will cost international rates. To avoid this, KPN mobile offers different sim-only options that meet all of your personal needs, so that you can stay connected with your friends and family at home.

Service and repairs are included. Swapfiets ensures that your bike is always ready to go.
