ABN AMRO makes sure that international students are able to pay anywhere in the Netherlands without any complications.

WERKT - Phone subscription
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 subscription from your current country, will cost international rates. To avoid this, USR 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.
