# A Dutch phone number
It is helpful to have a local phone number. If you have a different EU number that will work for a while, but you'll want to eventually get a local number as it is cheaper for people to call
you. You can either get a contract or pre-paid. Pre-paid is very easy, just go in and pay about 20 Euro for a sim card and activation and you are done, no need for anything else. If you want a
contract you'll need your passport and a Dutch bank account.

<https://www.pararius.com/english> or <http://funda.nl/en> are good places to start. Often times contacting agents there will result in them directing you to their own websites to find information
on rentals. Most apartment viewings will need to be scheduled during working hours(9:00-17:00), most clients and Olindata are flexible with this in the first few weeks. Before going to a viewing get
a model employee document from Olindata which states your contract length and salary as most places require proof of income.

You'll need a public transport card, known as OV-chipkaart. There are 3 types available, a personal one(requires BSN and Dutch bank account), an anonymous one, and a business one. OlinData provides a business one, but you'll likely want to get an anonymous one right away and then a personal one once you have a BSN and bank account.
