If you are unable to collect your renewal or top-up because a Swift Collector is not working, the fastest way to top-up may be to try an alternative top-up option.

Please note, Swift Support is unable to manually send your ticket or credit to your card. You will need to try one of the following top-up methods:



We would be grateful if you could also report broken Collectors to our Swift Support team, so we can send a technician out to resolve the issue. Please include the location of the Collector in your email. 

If your Swift card is not working on card readers but has credit or a valid season ticket loaded, please contact Swift Support who will be able to reissue you a card. 


If you have had to purchase additional travel tickets due to your Swift card not working, you may be able to claim compensation if you have a valid receipt. Please note, that we will check our systems to validate your claim.
