Everything you need in the Netherlands

bunq - Digital Bank Account

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

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.
Swapfiets - Bike Membership

Swapfiets - Bike Membership

You might have heard this before - the Dutch are a little crazy. Cycling is the most popular form of daily transport in the Netherlands. Not only is it convenient to quickly get around, it is also fun to go for a quick bike ride with friends. With a Swapfiets bike membership, you get your own bike for a fixed monthly fee. Service and repairs are included. Swapfiets ensures that your bike is always ready to go.

Gaiyo - Public Transport card

Gaiyo - Public Transport card

To use the extensive network of trams, metros, busses and trains in the Netherlands, you need one card that enables you to use all the different ways of public transport. With a Gaiyo Pass you ensure that you can easily access them all. This pass is also called an “OV chip card”. Next to the card you can also use the Gaiyo app to, for example, rent a scooter, for a quick ride! To get you started, Gaiyo adds €2,50 to your wallet when you download the app.
