Help! My OV-chipkaart is lost, stolen, broken or expired

  • My OV-chipkaart doesn’t work and is blocked.

    It’s very annoying if your OV-chipkaart doesn’t work when you want to travel. This may occur because of several reasons.

    • Is your OV-chipkaart defect or visible broken? Then order a replacement card at OV-chipkaart.nl
    • Is your travel balance negative? Then top this up to a minimum balance of € 0. You can then travel again. Student travel product does not work if you balance if negative.
    • Missed your check out? If you forget to check out 12 times or more your OV-chipkaart gets blocked. You can remove this block at the counter of the public transport company where you last checked in.
