If you no longer need your card

If your AT HOP card has been registered, you may apply to surrender your card and receive a refund of the HOP money balance on your card.

Card balance expiry

Please note that your AT HOP card, and any value loaded on it, will expire if the card is not used, no refund is requested, the card is cancelled, or no HOP money or monthly pass value is loaded onto it for a continuous period of six years. 

When your card expires, any value remaining on it will be forfeited and becomes the property of Auckland Transport. If this happens, you may contact us and we will transfer any HOP Money or the HOP Money equivalent of any inactivated products to another AT HOP card purchased by you.

If your application is approved, you will receive a refund of the HOP money balance on your card within 14 days of the surrender of your card. You cannot get a refund of a monthly or day pass.
