There is a HK$50 refundable deposit on the ticket. Passengers can either keep the ticket as a souvenir before leaving Hong Kong, or return it to any Airport Express Customer Service Centre for a refund of the deposit and any balance value* stored on the ticket. Should the balance on the ticket exceeds HK$500, however, it will be sent to the MTR headquarter for processing. Customers may be required to bear the delivery cost. The other conditions on refund for the Airport Express Pass is the same as the Octopus Card.
Balance Value refers to the value added to the Travel Pass for using on other places. If you hadn't added any value to it, only the HK$50 deposit will be refunded.
