Frequently Asked Questions

If your bag or wallet is lost or stolen, you can immediately call our emergency number, free of charge.

  • If you are in the Netherlands, call 0800 - 0701
  • If you are outside the Netherlands, call +31 20 651 59 27 (collect call option available)
We will block your cards (including credit cards) and mobile phone straight away. Once you make the call, you are no longer liable for any financial risks. The Stand-By Service even covers the policy excess on your bank cards and credit cards. This does not extend to cards with a loaded balance, such as an OV-Chipkaart travel card. And always remember to report the loss or theft of your cards to the police.

If your phone is lost or stolen, you can immediately call our emergency number, free of charge.

  • If you are in the Netherlands, call 0800 - 0701
  • If you are outside the Netherlands, call +31 20 651 59 27 (collect call option available)
If your phone is registered in the Stand-By Service and you have a carrier, we will contact your carrier directly to block your SIM card. This way, another person cannot just access your important data.

You do not need to apply for new cards as we will take care of that for you. We will replace ABN AMRO bank cards and credit cards free of charge. If you lose any other cards, we will notify the organisations that issued the cards. The costs of replacing those cards are payable by you.

Always report the loss or theft of your cards to the police. You may need to present written confirmation of the loss of the cards.

If you are abroad and find yourself dealing with an emergency situation, you can call + 31 20 651 59 27 for the following:

  • Forwarding an urgent message to family or friends.
  • Applying for a cash advance of up to €1,000. This may be necessary if you run out of money after your bank cards have been lost or stolen, or if you have to go to hospital urgently, for instance.
  • Help and advice when dealing with official authorities, such as embassies.
If you incur necessary costs during an emergency abroad, for example because you call the Netherlands or replace your travel document, those costs can be reimbursed.
