Where to buy a myki

We recommend you only buy your myki card from these authorised outlets:

Buying a myki online or via the call centre

If you're buying a myki card online or through our call centre you'll need to provide your postal address so we can send you the card. We'll delete these details within 30 days of sending you the card.

Your myki will take seven to 10 business days to arrive. Once you receive the card you need to top up so you're ready to travel.

You also have the option of registering your myki. This protects the balance of the card in case your myki is lost or stolen. When you buy a registered myki online or from the call centre, you can choose to print your name on it.

Buying a myki with an overseas credit card

Credit cards issued outside Australia cannot be used to buy myki cards online.

Buying a myki on a V/Line train

V/Line conductors sell myki cards pre-loaded with myki Money for travel to and from V/Line stations between Melbourne and Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Traralgon and Seymour.

  • Full fare cards cost $30 and include $24 myki Money.
  • Concession cards cost $15 and include $12 myki Money.

Buying a myki at a machine or retail outlet

All myki retail outlets sell Full Fare, Concession, Child and Senior myki cards.

When you buy a myki card, you must top up before you can travel.

All myki retail outlets can provide tax invoices (receipts). Simply request a receipt when you buy or top up your card and make sure you check your transaction details before leaving.
