Add it manually.

But this also means that the physical card can no longer be used after the transfer? How is that for a good customer experience if you can’t get home when your phone’s battery is gone.
If you got an XR or newer that’s not a problem as it has power reserve of about 5 hours where you can still use your express travel card method - https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/security/sec90cd29d1f/web

Unfortunately it errors out when I try to add my card and hold my phone over it
You don't hold your phone over it. You put your phone directly on it.

Almost 90% working folks have either left SFO or WFH. So good time to test this.
