Why do I need permission to link a card?

When you link someone else's card to your OV-chip account, you have access to the cardholder's personal details. This includes contact details, travel details and an account number. These details are subject to privacy legislation.


We can only provide you with access to the cardholder's personal details if he or she gives permission for this. We therefore send a unique code to the cardholder. If the cardholder shares this code with you, you can link the card to your account.

Are you the cardholder?

In this case you will receive the link code yourself.
