  • What is the insurance cover on shared bicycles?

    All e-bicycles are insured against third-party damage and theft through ENRA insurers. We do not apply an excess in the event of non-attributable damage or loss. Please contact your employer for more information on the insurance policy.

  • What’s the insurance cover on shared cars?

    Insurance includes accident insurance for passengers. The insurance is valid for the number of people who can wear a safety belt in the shared car. Please contact your employer for more information on any loss and damage waiver.

  • What type phone do I need for the Reisbalans app?

    The Reisbalans app is under continuous development to ensure optimal performance on the three most recent versions of both iOS and Android. You can download the Reisbalans app on an iPhone running iOS 9 or higher or a phone running Android version 5 or higher. This minimum support will be adjusted as versions become obsolete. You can find the app in Google Play and App Store.

  • How does trip registration via GPS tracker work?

    When you switch on the trip registration, the Reisbalans app records the route and distance you travel. These journeys are enriched as much as possible, for example with a mode of transport.

    Approximately one hour after completing the journey, the journey data will appear in your Reisbalans account. Sometimes this takes a little longer. Journey logging is a learning system that becomes more accurate the longer you use it.

    Please note! Public transport journeys that you make using the mobility card are automatically visible in your Reisbalans portal. You don’t have to register them manually or via GPS. These journeys do not need to be confirmed and can be deleted in your Reisbalans account.

    Is there anything else I should do with this data?

    Yes: for each journey, you must register the purpose of travel (e.g. business) and means of travel (e.g. car). Reisbalans provides suggestions based on your preferred settings. You then confirm the journey.

    The GPS tracker uses a lot of battery power

    To reduce battery consumption, the app is in ‘sleep mode’ until you move around. You can also choose to switch on the GPS tracker per journey. After your journey, GPS will switch off automatically.

    Who can see my GPS data?

    GPS data is stored anonymously on a secure server. This data is visible to you in your Reisbalans account. You can specify for each journey whether to confirm or delete it.

    Only journeys that you have confirmed are visible to your employer. If indicated that a journey was private, the information will NOT be visible to your employer.

  • What should I do if I forget the PIN number for refuelling?

    During your registration, you have chosen your four-digit PIN number. If you have forgotten your PIN number, please contact Customer Service. Your mobility card will be temporarily blocked for refuelling if the incorrect PIN number has been entered three times. After 24 hours, you can make payments again using the correct pin code.

  • How does it work if I have private expenses deducted through my own bank account?

    If you pay through your own bank account, Reisbalans will collect your private use through a monthly direct debit. You issue the automatic authorisation via your Reisbalans account. . The collection of fees is performed by our payment partner Twikey.

    You are then allowed to use the services your employer offers through Reisbalans privately. You need to give these transactions the destination ‘Private’, to ensure the expenses are settled via your bank account. Don’t forget to confirm these journeys.

    Please note! If you click ‘Confirm’, you cannot undo this action, and your journey cannot be changed. Please check carefully that all details are correct. Are you still in doubt? Then click ‘Cancel’.

  • Why is my GPS journey not recorded?

    This could be caused by several issues. Here are some tips that might help:

    • Make sure you have installed the latest version of the app
    • Check if you are logged in
    • Check if GPS tracker is switched on
    • Check if ‘location features’ on your phone is activated
    • Check if ‘background app refresh’ is enabled (for iPhone users)
    • Have you tried the above? Then close the app and open it again.

    Android has specific power-saving apps and battery-saving settings in the phone. They prompt a user to put the app into a power-saving mode if it is using too much battery power. This option is also available for the Reisbalans app. However, if you choose to enable this option, it cancels background tracking of our app and no longer records any journeys. Therefore, ensure Reisbalans is not in power-saving mode.

    Please contact Reisbalans Customer Service if you are still experiencing difficulties. We are available 24/7 on working days via telephone number 088-934 34 56 or at klantenservice@reisbalans.nl.

  • What phone do I need for the Reisbalans app?

    The Reisbalans app is under continuous development to ensure optimal performance on the three most recent versions of both iOS and Android. You can download the Reisbalans app on an iPhone running iOS 9 or higher or a phone running Android version 5 or higher. This minimum support will be adjusted as versions become obsolete. You can find the app in Google Play and App Store.

  • What do I use ‘Navigation’ for?

    It allows you to schedule the route to your (favourite) destination using Google Maps.

  • How do I install the Reisbalans app?

    You can find the app in Google Play for Android and App Store for iPhone. Click on ‘Install’ and log in with your Reisbalans account.

  • What do I use ‘Locations’ for?

    It will inform you how many OV-fietsen are available at various locations. Additional services will be added in the future.

  • Why does the app ask for certain permissions?

    When you install the Reisbalans app on your smartphone and you access specific features, you get a notification that the Reisbalans app wants to access certain resources on your phone. Reisbalans does NOT have access to these resources; it is only for your own convenience. Once issued, the permission can always be withdrawn in the settings of your phone (also accessible through the settings in the app).
    Specifically, the following sources:

    Camera

    Some organisations use the expense claim function or the option of logging in via QR code within Reisbalans. You can photograph a receipt and upload it into the app or read the login QR code from another screen.

    GPS location

    This is required to be able to use the GPS tracker when using the app. Journeys are therefore only recorded if you have activated this functionality in the app. Location determination also has a function when registering a journey and other screens where a location can be chosen; you can choose to schedule a journey from or to your ‘current location’.

    GPS location in the background

    This is required to be able to use the GPS tracker when the app is closed. Journeys are recorded in the background. The actual recording only takes place when journey registration is activated on the start screen of the app.

    Physical activity

    When the Reisbalans app accesses movement data on your phone, this can be used to carry out accurate measurements (such as speed) in order to provide an optimal recoding of your route.

    Bluetooth

    Some organisations use a booking system for shared cars that can be opened and closed via the app. Reisbalans communicates with these cars via Bluetooth and cannot open or close the cars without permission.

    Notifications

    When there are time-sensitive updates, for example about booking a taxi or shared vehicle, push notifications can be sent from the app to your phone.

  • What do I use ‘Cards’ for?

    Cards gives an overview of your mobility card(s).

    Please report here if your mobility card has been lost or stolen. You can also terminate your card (check with your employer whether this also applies to you) here.

  • How do I log in to the Reisbalans app?

    Once you have installed the app, you can log in with your Reisbalans account. Don’t have an account yet? Please contact your employer.

    Does your employer use Single Sign On (SSO)? Then you must log in via a QR code. The QR code is available in the Reisbalans portal. Go through the following steps:

    1. Go to the Reisbalans portal and log in.
    2. Go to your Profile on the top right of your account.
    3. Click on ‘Log in with your QR code’.
    4. Once you are in your Reisbalans app, you can choose to log in using a QR code.
    5. Scan the QR code in your Reisbalans portal and you are automatically logged into the app.
  • How does the GPS tracker work?

    When you switch on the GPS tracker, the Reisbalans app records the route and distance you travel. These journeys are enriched as much as possible, for example with a mode of transport.

    Approximately one hour after completing the journey, the journey data will appear in your Reisbalans account. Sometimes this takes a little longer. Journey logging is a learning system that becomes more accurate the longer you use it.

    Attention! Public transport journeys that you make using the mobility card are automatically visible in your Reisbalans portal. You don’t have to register them manually or via GPS. These journeys do not need to be confirmed and can be deleted in your Reisbalans account.

    Is there anything else I should do with this data?

    Yes: for each journey, you must register the purpose of travel (e.g. business) and means of travel (e.g. car). Reisbalans provides suggestions based on your preferred settings. You then confirm the journey.

    The GPS tracker uses a lot of battery power

    To reduce battery consumption, the app is in ‘sleep mode’ until you move around. You can also choose to switch on the GPS tracker per journey. After your journey, GPS will switch off automatically.

    Who can see my GPS data?

    GPS data is stored anonymously on a secure server. This data is visible to you in your Reisbalans account. You decide for each journey whether to confirm or delete it.

    Only journeys that you have confirmed are visible to your employer. If indicated that a journey was private, your employer will NOT see this information.

  • What do I see in ‘Overview’?

    All your journeys and expense claims registered with your mobility card or with the GPS tracker of the app (provided it is switched on) are registered here.

    Is the GPS tracker switched off or do you want to register a different journey? You can easily add it here yourself.

  • What do I use ‘Registered Vehicles’ for?

    You will find an overview modes of transport you are allowed to use. You can also add a car, enabling you to claim the relevant mileage.

    To add a car, click on the green plus sign at the bottom right.

    You can enter the license plate of your car, which will calculate the CO2 emissions and energy label. If you do not want this, you can choose to only add a reference, for example ‘Private’ or ‘My vehicle’.

  • What do I use ‘Transport’ for?

    If your employer uses shared transport, you can make and change bookings here. If your employer facilitates the use of taxies, you can book a taxi here.

  • What do I use ‘Parking’ for?

    If your employer enabled the use of parking (street or car park), you will find your Yellowbrick customer number here. You can use the customer number to log in to your Yellowbrick account and use the parking function.

  • How long may I park my bicycle in the secure bicycle parking facility?

    You may leave your bicycle in a secure bicycle parking facility at the station for a maximum of 28 consecutive days.

  • How do I take my bicycle on the train?

    If you want to bring a bicycle onto the train, you must make a booking and purchase an ‘Off-peak Bicycle Ticket’. The booking can be made via Treinwijzer, ns.nl, the NS app, a ticket counter or the NS Customer Service.

  • Why do I see an amount when I check in with my card?

    Public transport companies in the Netherlands use a so-called boarding fee. This boarding fee may differ per carrier. When you check in, the boarding fee will be deducted from your balance. This is the amount visible when you check in with your mobility card.

    When you check out, the fare for the journey will be calculated and the rest of the amount will be refunded to your card. When you check out, you see the amount you have paid and the amount remaining on your mobility card.

    If you forget to check in or out, you are charged the boarding fee of the carrier concerned. You can get a refund via www.uitcheckgemist.nl.

  • What should I do if I’m delayed on the train?

    You can request a refund here.

  • What should I do if I forget to check in or out?

    Depending on your employer’s choice, Reisbalans will either facilitate the refund application process or you need to apply for a refund yourself.

    1. If Reisbalans requests a refund, we will establish the missing station based on your travel history and ask the carrier concerned for a refund. We will then let you know whether or not the request is honoured by the carrier


    Please note:
    This service applies to a forgotten check-out on a train.
    In case of a forgotten check-in at the train or a forgotten check-out in a bus, tram or metro, you need to request a refund personally. See the explanation under point 2.

    1. If you need to claim refunds yourself, you can do so onuitcheckgemist.nl. It might take a while before a journey is visible on uitcheckgemist.nl. In most cases, this is within 14 days, but at the latest within 62 days. You can see immediately on your screen whether you are entitled to a refund, and if so, how much. At the bottom of the page, you can email this confirmation to yourself.

     

    In both cases, if a refund request is granted, the amount to be refunded must be collected. Collection takes place automatically at your next check-in with NS. If you do not travel with NS, you can collect the amount from one of the OV-chipkaart service points. After payment, the refund will appear as a positive transaction in your transaction overview.

    Exception: NS-Business Card
    In case you are travelling using a NS-Business Card, a refund can be applied for using your personal NS-portal. Click here for more information. Any incomplete journeys will NOT be visible in your Reisbalans

  • Can I have the mobility card sent to an address outside the Netherlands?

    No, you cannot have the card sent to an address abroad. The card will be sent to the (home) address registered in our system.

  • How can I use the bicycle parking at a train station?

    Your mobility card includes ’Storage on account’. This allows you to park your own bicycle in the secure railway station bicycle parking facilities. At some bicycle parking facilities, only your mobility card is scanned (at pick-up and drop-off). At other bicycle parking facilities, you also receive a (one-time) sticker with a barcode on your bicycle. Most parking facilities are free of charge the first 24 hours.

    More information about ’Storage on account’ and connected parking facilities is available here.

  • How do I rent an OV-fiets?

    You can rent an OV-bike using your mobility card, for example for the last leg of your journey. You only need to have your mobility card scanned by an employee at the bicycle parking facility and you can leave immediately. You can view the journey later in your Reisbalans account.

    At an unmanned storage facility, it works a little differently.


    More information about the OV-fietscan be found here : www.ov-fiets.nl.

  • How do I use the mobility card?

    How do I travel on public transport (OV)?

    When changing buses or trams, you need to check in and out of the relevant vehicle.

    If you change buses or trams, you must need to check in and out in the relevant vehicle.

    If you change trains or metros, you must check in at your departure station and check out at your arrival station. Are you switching to a different carrier (for example, from NS to Arriva)? Check out at one carrier and check in at the next.

    Your public transport journeys will usually be visible in your account within 24-48 hours

    How do I change from first to second class or vice versa?

    You can change your class at an NS machine at the station. Hold up your card in front of the OV-chipkaart reader and select ‘Change class’. Follow the on-screen instructions and don’t forget to check in before you take the train.

  • I committed a traffic violation with a shared car

    You are liable for the charges below if you commit a traffic violation and receive a fine. Reisbalans is authorised to report to the employer which employee reserved the vehicle at the time the traffic violation was committed.

  • How should I charge a shared electric bicycle?

    How do I charge the e-bike?

    The electric bicycle, or e-bicycle/e-bike, has a removable battery. This battery can be charged using a plug with a regular 230V connection. More information can be provided on site.

    How long does it take for the e-bike to charge?

    How long it takes for your e-bike to be charged depends on the type of charger. An overview is given in the table below.

    Type of charger 50% charged 100% charged
    Compact charger 2.5 hours 6.5 hours
    Standard charger 1.5 hours 3.5 hours
    Fast charger 1 hour 2.5 hours

     

    Should I charge the battery each time before use?

    In principle, this is not necessary. Even after long periods of storage, the e-bike can be used again without having to recharge the battery. Bosch recommends storing the e-bike with a charge level of approx. 30 to 60%.

    How can I increase battery life?

    • Reduce strain on battery
    • Storage of battery pack at a temperature between 0 and 20 ⁰C
    • Storage in an approx. 30 to 60% charged condition
    • Parking the e-bike in the shade or cool environment

  • How should I charge a shared electric car?

    Do I always have to put the car on the charger when returning it?
    Yes. It is nice to have a car at your disposal with sufficient battery capacity. Once the battery is fully charged, it stops using power. It is no big deal if the car is on the charging point longer than necessary while parked at your own shared car spot.

    Where can I recharge?
    The Reisbalans shared cars always have a “home location”. This is where you pick up and return the shared car. When on the road, we recommend you always park at a charging point so you can recharge the car in between stops. You can find the nearest and available charging points via:

    www.oplaadpalen.nl
    www.oplaadpunten.nl
    www.fastnedcharging.com

    Can I charge the car at any charging point?
    Yes, this is possible at all public charging points. In the car’s glove compartment, you will find a key ring with the charge tag on it. This charge tag contains a chip that allows you to start charging at any public charging point in the Netherlands.

    How long does it take to charge the Volkswagen e-Golf?
    Charging a completely empty battery takes about 4.5 hours. However, in practice, the battery will never be completely empty. Rapid-charging takes about fifteen minutes to half an hour.

    Type of charging point Charging time
    Rapid-charger 80% in 43 minutes
    Socket (230V) 15 hours and 36 minutes
    3,7 kW charging point 9 hours and 42 minutes
    11 kW charging point 4 hours and 54 minutes
    22 kW charging point 4 hours and 54 minutes


    How do I start charging?

    At the end of the journey, or when you make a stopover, the car must be connected to a charging point. You can activate the charging function by:

    1. Open the charging cover (rear, right) manually by pressing it
    2. Take the charging cable out of the boot
    3. Plug the charging cable into the charging point and the car
    4. Take the charge tag from the glove compartment
    5. Hold the charge tag near the display of the charging point. When the light on the charging point turns BLUE, the battery is charging.
    6. Not working? Ensure the cables are plugged in properly. Hold the charge tag near the display of the charging point again.
    7. Check if the car has started charging on the dashboard of the car
      and put the charge tag back in the glove compartment.

    Charging doesn’t start, what should I do?
    There are several possibilities:

    • Charge cord is not plugged in properly; plug in tightly and hold up the charge tag again.
    • Engine is still on; check the car is switched off and then hold up the charge tag again.
    • Charge tag is not read properly; follow the instructions of the charging point, hold up the charge tag long enough and check charging is started on the car display.


    How do I stop the charging process?
    Disconnecting the charging point works as follows:

    1. Hold the charge tag (from the glove compartment) at the charging point display to stop the charging process
    2. If the light on the charging point turns GREEN, the charging cable is unlocked.
      Not working? Hold the charge tag up to the display of the charging point again to stop the charging process.
    3. Unlock the charging cable by pressing the open lock button twice (on the driver’s side door)
    4. Remove the charging cable from the car and the charging point
    5. Close the charging cover (rear, right) manually
    6. Store the charging cable in the boot

  • What is shared transport?

    Shared transport refers to different people taking turns using one or more transport modes or vehicles. For example, a shared car or shared bicycle. In order to avoid the complexity of handing over keys, shared vehicles are opened and closed using an app instead of a traditional key.

    At Reisbalans, we offer both ‘private’ shared transport (parked at your employer’s premises and only to be used by you and your colleagues) and shared transport via partners (Greenwheels, Amber, etc.).

  • What should I do with an ‘incomplete’ journey in my overview?

    Suppose you forgot to check out. Or, when checking out, you realize you forgot to check in. Or the equipment is not working properly, so you could not check in or out. This means that of a specific journey, only one ‘check moment’ is known. This is classed as an ‘incomplete journey’. The information provided by the carrier is visible in Reisbalans. We CANNOT change these details. Nor can we check whether the equipment, for example at a station, is working correctly. We are also unable to change the rate charged by the carrier (correction fee).

    What to do
    First of all, you need to account for this journey (if agreed with your employer). You/Reisbalans can then request a refund for the excess amount paid. More information can be found at ‘What should I do if I forget to check in or out?’ in the Mobility card section.

  • What should I do if my journey was mistakenly split into two journeys?

  • How to refuel using my mobility card?

    You can use your mobility card to refuel almost anywhere in the Netherlands. Click here for an overview of all petrol stations and charging points.

    The Reisbalans card works the same as a regular fuel card. You use it at the till of the petrol station or at the terminal if it is an unmanned petrol station.
    This is how it works at an unmanned petrol station:

    Take the following steps to pay for your petrol:

    1. Remember your mileage when you leave the car (this needs to be entered at the till).
    2. Pay with your mobility card after filling up with petrol, or beforehand in case of unmanned petrol stations.
    3. Insert your card into the PIN device, enter mileage and PIN number. You created the PIN number for refuelling when you registered for the mobility card.
    4. You have now paid. Your fuel transaction is visible in your portal and in the app.

    Please note! It is not possible to use your mobility card to pay abroad. Claim your foreign fuel receipt(s) via Reisbalans. Payment is made via your employer.

    Check this video for more information on refuelling and paying at an unmanned petrol station.

     

  • get an error message when I want to check out with my fuel card, what to do?

    When you pay at a manned petrol station, it can happen that you get an error message when you hold your fuel card at the cash machine for contactless payment. The cash machine first recognises the OV-chip function of the card before it registers the magnetic strip that is actually used for the payment.

    In this case, it is best to ask the staff member at the petrol station to deactivate the ‘Contactless payment’ function of the ATM.

  • I forgot the PIN number for refuelling, what to do?

    During your registration, you have chosen your four-digit PIN number. If you have forgotten your PIN number, please contact Customer Service. Your mobility card will be temporarily blocked for refuelling if you entered the incorrect PIN number three times. After 24 hours, you can make payments again using the correct pin code.

  • How to add and pay for Carwash?

    You can use Carwash using your mobility card. With over 1,100 affiliated carwash locations, there is always a carwash nearby that you can use with the Travelcard fuel card. To make it easy for you, the smartphone locator makes it easy to find a carwash nearby. Or click here for the list of Carwash locations.

    Paying for carwash with the fuel card is very easy. As with the payment of fuel, you enter the PIN code and optionally the odometer reading during checkout.

  • How does electric charging using an Eneco key fob work?

    If you are permitted to charge electrically using an Eneco key fob, you can use it at all public charging stations and at Eneco private charging stations.

    Do you have a private charging station from another supplier? If so, please contact your supplier to activate your Eneco charging station.

    Electric charging is easy:

    1. Park your car at a charging station.
    2. Connect the charging station to your car. Most charging stations will display a green light if the pairing is correct. If the light is red, there is a malfunction and charging is not possible.
    3. Hold the key-fob in front of the charging station and wait until the lights turn blue. This indicates charging has commenced.
    4. On your return, unlock the charging station using the key fob and disconnect the charging cable.
  • How do I book a taxi using Reisbalans?

    If your employer allows you to use a taxi, you can make a booking via Customer Service by phone or email.

    Book your taxi at least one hour in advance by phone. You can reach us 24/7 on 088 – 934 34 56.
    If you would like to make a booking by email, please contact our Customer Service at klantenservice@reisbalans.nl at least one working day in advance.

  • What does private use involve?

    Employers may allow the use of Reisbalans services for private purposes. The expenses for private use can be settled in two ways. Either based on a settlement in the salary or through a direct debit agreement between Reisbalans and the employee.

    Check with your employer whether private use of the Reisbalans services is permitted and what form of settlement will be applied.

  • How does it work if I have private expenses deducted through my own bank account?

    If you pay through your own bank account, Reisbalans will collect your private use through a monthly direct debit. You issue the automatic authorisation via your Reisbalans account. The collection of fees is performed by our payment partner Twikey.

    You are then allowed to use the services your employer offers through Reisbalans privately. You need to give these transactions the destination ‘Private’, to ensure the expenses are settled via your bank account. Don’t forget to confirm these journeys.

    Please note! If you click ‘Confirm’, you cannot undo this action, and your journey cannot be changed. Please check carefully that all details are correct. Are you still in doubt? Then click ‘Cancel’.

  • How can I enable the offsetting of private use through my own account?

    Reisbalans portal
    Log in to the Reisbalans portal and click on ‘Invoicing’ in the menu on the left. Click on ‘Send automatic authorisation’. In a new tab, the authorisation screen of our payment partner Twikey opens. Select your bank, fill in the requested details and check the confirmation. Close the tab to return to the Reisbalans portal.
    Please note! Please have your identifier or bank login details ready.

    Reisbalans app
    Open the app and click on ‘More’ at the bottom right. Click on ‘Invoicing’. Click on ‘Send automatic authorisation’. The authorisation screen of our payment partner Twikey opens in a new screen. Select your bank, fill in the requested details and check the confirmation. Close the screen to go back to the Reisbalans app.
    Please note! Please have your identifier or bank login details ready.

  • What is a direct debit authorisation and how does it work?

    A direct debit authorisation means you authorise Reisbalans to collect the amount for expenses incurred privately from your bank account. You do this by issuing your authorisation under the ‘Invoicing’ button in your Reisbalans account (see also ‘How can I switch on private use settlement via my private account?’) and by giving your journeys and transactions the journey purpose ‘Private’ for confirmation.

  • Why am I unable to issue my direct debit authorisation?

    If you get an error message stating cancelled when issuing your authorisation, you accidently clicked cancel. Was this a mistake? Then try again via your Reisbalans account.

    If it says issuing authorisation failed, this is most likely due to a technical error at your bank. Try again in a few minutes.

    Do you keep getting an error message? Please contact our Customer Service.

  • How soon after issuing my automatic authorisation can I make private use of Reisbalans (via my own account)?

    Once you have issued your automatic authorisation, you can start using Reisbalans privately straight away. It is especially important that you have issued the authorisation when you want to confirm the transactions on the travel destination ‘Private’. At the time of confirmation, Reisbalans will check whether the expenses need to be settled via your bank account or your salary.

  • What happens if I revoke my authorisation?

    If you revoke your direct debit authorisation, private use will no longer be automatically debited from your bank account. Instead, all expenses with the travel purpose ‘Private’ will be deducted from your salary.

    You can still make use of the services provided by your employer. The mobility card or travel products will therefore not be cancelled when your authorisation is withdrawn.

    If you would like these charges to go through your private account again, you can issue a new automatic authorisation through your Reisbalans account.

  • What’s Twikey?

    Twikey is our payment partner with whom we work together for the collection of private fees. Automatic authorisation and the collection of expenses incurred is performed by Twikey.

  • How can I change my direct debit details?

    You must inform your employer and bank of any changes to these details.

  • How can I change my bank account number?

    You cannot change your bank account number for your automatic authorisation with Reisbalans. If you want to make the collection through a different bank account number, you must withdraw the current authorisation and issue a new one.

  • How can I class my transactions as private use?

    You can do this when confirming transactions. Before confirming these journeys, you must select ‘Private’ as destination.

    Please note! If you click ‘Confirm’, you cannot undo this action, and your journey cannot be changed. Please check carefully that all details are correct. Are you still in doubt? Then click ‘Cancel’.

  • What should I do if my journey has been incorrectly assigned the wrong journey destination?

    Did you accidentally confirm a transaction with the travel purpose ‘Private’ when it was actually commuting or business? You can claim excess expenses via Reisbalans.

  • What should I do if my invoice and/or amount to be collected is incorrect?

    If your invoice and/or the amount to be collected are incorrect, please contact Customer Service at 088 – 934 34 56. If the amount has already been debited, do not reverse this money.

  • Why did payment of my invoice fail?

    If you have received an email from us stating that the collection was unsuccessful, there may be various reasons for this. However, you do not need to transfer the amount to us manually as we will try to collect the amount again in 5 working days. We want to make sure things are going well, so we ask you to please check that you have enough balance in your bank account.

  • When will I receive my invoice?

    Around the 8th of each month, you will receive an email announcing the collection of fees and referring you to the invoice which can be found in your Reisbalans account.

Columns T and U stipulate locations, and columns W and Y stipulate additional costs for first class. Column AC stipulates if the purpose of the journey is commuting or business.
