Take public transport: train, tram, metro and bus
Public transport is a crucial part of our business mobility today. Relocations for the work are no longer only done by car, but also by tram, bus and train, whether or not supplemented by a ride with the (sub) bicycle or (part) scooter. Or does that colorful collection of train and tram tips mean extra administrative hassle? Not at all. All trips by public transport simply appear on one periodic invoice, which also lists mobility expenses such as taxi or parking costs.
Buy train ticket with your mobility card
Via the Milo app that is linked to the MAES Mobility Card you can buy your train tickets at the NMBS in no time at all. Moreover, you and your employees can categorize every train ride. If it is a home-to-work transfer, if it is a transfer to a customer or if the journey belongs to yet another cost item, then you simply add extra information. In other words, processing invoices and receipts manually is a thing of the past, and that means administrative simplification of format.
From one-time bus ride to subscription
Do you and your employees take the bus? Then you can purchase your De Lijn tickets directly via the Milo app – at least if you are a MAES Mobility Card holder! Also a subscription at De Lijn activate and pay with your mobility card. Any discounts that certain cities or municipalities give to their residents are automatically deducted.

What are the benefits of a MMC?
With an MMC you do full cost control regarding mobility. Everything is centralized on one invoice and therefore you no longer need to keep receipts (except for restaurant receipts). Belgian VAT can easily be recovered in this way. In a second phase, a mobility card can be used to allocate budgets to employees in the context of the cafeteria plan / mobility budget and flex plan.
Can the MAES Mobility Card replace my existing MAES fuel card?
Depending on individual needs, this certainly is a possibility. Are you only looking for a fuel card with which you can refuel budget-friendly? Then the MAES fuel card is the best option. Do you need more mobility options? Then remember that you enjoy the same conditions with the MMC as with our MAES fuel card

Can I replace my OBU with the MMC?
No that is not possible. You can pay toll with the MMC in Europe but for the kilometer toll in Belgium an OBU remains necessary.
I am a “private person”. Can I also request the MMC?
The card is only intended for the holders of a VAT or company/business number.
Which VAT can I recuperate?
Only Belgian VAT can be reclaimed. With regard to parking, all VAT will be clearly stated on the invoice. For street parking there is no VAT charge, but there is for parking behind a barrier. Regarding the recuperation of VAT on restaurant expenses, you must keep the receipts as drink and food have a separate rate and therefore only can be split up on the restaurant ticket.
What about foreign VAT?
For expenses abroad you will receive an invoice with foreign VAT, which you can not settle in Belgium.
You have two options there:
- Reclaim the foreign VAT yourself in the country concerned via Intervat / VatRefund;
- Or you can have this done by our partner VAT-IT. MAES negotiated a favorable rate with them (20% of the VAT amount on a no cure no pay basis) in order to reclaim your VAT. In that case, send an e-mail to [email protected] and they will contact you.
Will my card be replaced FREE in the event of loss, theft or damage?
No. If you lose your card or it is stolen, you should block the card via CARD STOP. New cards are delivered at the applicable rates.
Can I change my PIN code or take over the code from my existing (MAES) fuel card?
You can choose your PIN yourself when requesting the MMC via a Self Service Web application. This code can and may therefore be the same as that of a MAES fuel card.
