Hello Bkkiam, welcome at our community,

I can not tell you when we will sell this subscription.
What do you suggest i do if i want to get a monthly subscription for the intercity direct if i can’t put it on my card?

Can i put it on another card and have the controlers scan both cards one for the flex dal vrij and one for the toeslag ?

I take the intercity direct about 8 to 10 times a week so checking it in every time would be really expensive
I'm not sure if we do allow this. I will figure this out for you and will let you know.
Because if not, what should i do ?

Yes, do this, I do exactly the same thing. Order a new card, and put the IC direct monthly supplement on this, You just give the conductor your 2 cards, should work without a problem.

I still wonder why a conductor on the train could NOT see an ICd subscription on your card, instead of loading it on another (other than that useless) sepsrate/extra ov-chipcard 🤔

Basically the same as traveling 1st class with a 2nd class (Flex) subscription. They will look into the system and if there is no direct/visible match, make a notice so the system can work that out afterwards.

And don't you get the "correctietarief" that way? Because that's automated and the system recognize that you travel on the Intercity Direct line?

Don’t expect them to be specific, all these people do is throwing random non specific sentences around.
I don't know if Erryt received an update yet but he is out of office until the beginning of January. Hopefully he'll be back with good news 🙂.
I didn't receive an update while I was away. I did send a reminder.
I'd also like to know when it will be possible to add ICD to NS Flex
I still didn't receive an update. I hope I can give you an update next week.

Can my answer (marked as best) please be revoked then? Open question still!

I relied/trusted on info that @Sivan NS posted earlier in another topic.

Of course, 2019 is still fresh.. but if nobody knows by now, I really don't want to be the 'messenger' of bad news... 🙄
I've removed the best answer Robert B.
I did send a reminder. I'm sorry that it takes so long.
You can travel with a NS Intercity Direct monthly subscription and a NS Flex subscription if you load them separately on 2 OV-chipcards.
