If your personal OV-chipkaart is lost or stolen, then you should have it blocked. Apply for a new personal or anonymous card afterward.
Refunds for loss or theft
If your OV-chipkaart or NS-Business Card with a season ticket is lost or stolen, then you can request a replacement card. If you need your season ticket, but your replacement card has not yet arrived, you can request temporary travel via Mijn NS or NS Customer Service. Temporary tickets are not available with the NS-Business Card, as you can declare all of your travel costs.
Temporary ticket and declaration
If you are waiting for a replacement OV-chipkaart with an annual season ticket, you can usually travel with a temporary variant of your season ticket for three weeks. Depending on which season ticket you have, you may be able to request a refund for the costs incurred during this period.
