Loading an OV-chipkaart
There are a number of ways to load your OV-chipkaart. You can choose Automatic reload, so that you never have to think about credit. Or you can load your card using a loading device at the station. Choose the most convenient option for you.
You can choose Automatic reload on a personal OV-chipkaart. As soon as the credit drops below € 0, an amount will automatically be transferred from your bank account to your OV-chipkaart. This means you always have enough credit to travel.
