Child Leap Card

There are two versions of the Child Leap Card.

Children 5 - 15 years of age (inclusive) can use an anonymous Child Leap Card. You can buy an anonymous Leap Card at any Payzone outlet.

For children between 16 and 18 years of age, an application must be completed to obtain a personalised Leap Card. To avail of the child fares you must use a personalised Leap Card and there is no cash alternative. Download an application form here.

A €3 fully refundable deposit is charged for the card and you must also top-up with a minimum of €5 travel credit.

The travel credit can then be used to pay for individual journeys. When the cap below is reached, no further charges will apply. A maximum of €1.15 will apply to capping when using Xpresso services.

You can register your Leap Card here to protect against loss or theft. It is important to report your lost or stolen card as soon as possible to ensure you can be fully refunded, as refunds can only be processed from midnight on the day of the report. A replacement Leap Card will be posted to you within 5 working days with the travel credit balance from the lost card.
