OV chip card for public transport
Dutch public transport requires a so-called OV-chipkaart, a smart card that can be used for bus, tram, train and metro services.
To travel with local transport it is also possible to use the Tranzer app. Individual tickets are a little bit more expensive than with a OV-card but you don’t have to buy the OV-card but can pay with your credit card.

When traveling by public transport in the Netherlands, you can use the so-called OV-chip card. This is a kind of credit card used to pay for bus, tram, train and metro. Since there is no separate card for tourists, it is best to use an 'anonymous' OV-chip card. It is also still possible to travel with a train ticket. If you would like to buy a ticket at one of the NS-ticket machines, the payment methods are cash (only coins), PIN (only certain European debit cards) and sometimes a credit card (only MasterCard & VISA).
You can rent a bike for € 7.50 and € 15 per day (€ 50 deposit and by showing your passport) at Delft Central Station T+31 15 21 43 033 or bike rentals in the city centre; ask at the reception desk of your hotel.
