Automatic top-up of pay-as-you-go credit

If you wish to ensure that you always have pay-as-you-go credit on your travelcard, you can set up automatic top-up.

How to get automatic top-up

You can buy a new travelcard with automatic top-up at our customer service centre or service points. If you already have a travelcard you may also get help with automatic top-up at Lillestrøm bus terminal.

How automatic top-up works

  1. Validate the card when travelling.
  2. If the balance drops below NOK 50, the card will be topped up.
  3. You will receive an invoice by post or in your online bank when the travelcard is topped up. Choose electronic invoice or automatic debit in your online bank, to avoid the NOK 50 invoice fee.
  4. If you wish to set up automatic top-up for a child between 15 and 18 years of age at a customer centre, the child must attend to provide consent for the processing or personal data.

Travelcard with automatic top-up will be registered, and you may create MinSide (My Page).
