If you choose to enable automatic reload, you will always have sufficient credit on your OV-chipkaart. As soon as the credit falls below €5, an amount will automatically be loaded onto your OV-chipkaart. This will then be debited from your bank account. You can choose from €10, €20 or €50. Automatic reloading is only possible on a personal OV-chipkaart.
You can apply for automatic reloading by providing a single authorisation for your credit to be increased as soon as it drops below €5. You will then need to add automatic reloading onto your card at a pick-up device. We call this activation. Automatic reloading will begin to work from this point.
You can terminate automatic reloading at any time.
It is quick and easy to apply for automatic reload through My OV-chipkaart
