The MOBIB card is an electronic chip card that is valid for 5 years. You may always consult the period of validity of your season pass with each MOBIB scanner. Press the 'Info'-button of the MOBIB scanner. The device will make a beeping noise. Hold your MOBIB card in front of the MOBIB scanner. The end date of your season pass appears on the screen.
The validity of your card is checked when you renew your travel pass. If your new travel pass starts after the date on your MOBIB card an administrative charge of €5 for the new card will automatically be added. The new MOBIB card has a validity of 5 years. Learn all about your MOBIB card.
Jan can choose 8 April 2019 as the start date of his annual travel pass. The annual travel pass is loaded onto his current MOBIB card. If he renews his annual travel pass the following year he must also buy a new MOBIB card when purchasing a new travel pass. His travel pass with start date 8 April 2020 is loaded onto the new MOBIB card and forwarded to his home address.
If he would like to have his travel pass start on 9 April 2019 then it can no longer be loaded onto his current MOBIB card. In that case he has to buy a new MOBIB card as well as a new travel pass.
Jan has a travel pass that expires on 7 June 2019. However, his MOBIB card will have expired by then. Still, he can keep using his card as long as his travel pass remains valid. The date on the card is the latest date you can have your travel pass start.
