An OV-chipkaart is valid for five years. After that you can no longer travel with it. You can renew a personal card online for €7.50 via your OV-chip account. You will then receive a new card containing your subscriptions and products. Don't need a new card? You can also only request a refund of your balance. Anonymous cards cannot be renewed: you use up the balance or request it back.

Personal OV-chipkaart

You can renew the card via your account from six weeks before your card expires until one year after the end date. You will receive the remaining balance within 15 days after the end date of your card. If you don't need a new card, you can also just reclaim the balance. You will then receive the remaining balance immediately.
