Topping up

Introducing three easy ways to top-up or renew.

Swift Collector App

Download the Swit Collector App from Google Play and collect a top-up from the comfort of your home.

The app works on most NFC enabled Android devices (running Ice KitKat V4.4.x or later). Simply open the app, place your Swift card to the back of the device and follow the on-screen instructions.

The Apple IOS Swift Collector Is Here

The wait is over, you can now download Swift Collector app from the Apple App Store.

Please note that the app is only compatible if you are using iOS version 13 on an iPhone 7 model or later.

Read the Swift Collector App End User Licence Agreement.

Click and collect

Log in to your Swift Card account, select the card you'd like to top-up or renew and tell us what you'd like to add to your card, then click to checkout.

Then all you need to do is collect. Use the Swift Collector app, or over 100 on-street Swift Collectors to load your credit or ticket to your card.
