If your card is lost or stolen it can be electronically cancelled or ‘hotlisted’. To immediately hotlist your iLink Card please phone Translink on 028 9075 9129.
You should make a note of your iLink Card number printed on the back of the card and on any ticket receipts issued, so that your card can be hotlisted.
It takes two working days before a hotlisted card becomes deactivated. Translink can then prevent unauthorised use of the card. A hotlisted card presented for travel will be confiscated. Hotlisted cards CANNOT be reactivated.
Translink CANNOT prevent the unauthorised use of lost or stolen iLink Cards until they have been reported by the card holder and hotlisting has been completed.
See Terms and Conditions on how to claim a refund on remaining travel on a hotlisted iLink Card.
