Shell waives TnG top-up fees on NKVE, ELITE, ECE

IA - TIME

Shell Malaysia has announced that it is waiving the MYR0.50 top-up fee for Touch ‘n Go at all its petrol stations along two PLUS highways—NKVE and ELITE, and the East Coast Expressway (ECE).

This is an extension of its earlier move in January where the company waived the top-up fee at its stations along the North-South Expressway (NSE).

“Shell understands the challenge Malaysians face against the rising cost of living. We know it can be difficult to save when there are inclining necessary expenses like food, transportation, utilities and education, which form a huge part of one’s expenditure,” said Shairan Huzani Husain, managing director of Shell Malaysia Trading and Shell Timur.

“Hopefully, forgoing the Touch ‘n Go top-up charges at all stations along NSE, NKVE, ELITE, ECE, and other Shell stations will give our customers one less worry when travelling or fueling up at Shell during long journeys,”

“These initiatives represent our commitment towards Malaysians and their journeys on and off the road. We at Shell are equally passionate for creating life-enriching opportunities for Malaysians, just as we are about providing high-quality fuels and products that help our customers get more out of their journeys,” he added.

The expansion efforts also include 25 other Shell stations at various locations nationwide.

Touch ‘n Go also has an entire list of no reload fee locations and if you’re on-the-go, you can locate zero-fee TnG reload locations directly from the Waze app.

Shell’s longstanding Touch ‘n Go partnership took an interesting turn recently with the two brands intending to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to bring RFID refuelling to Malaysian consumers. Touch ‘n Go recently announced plans to expand the use of its RFID tag technology beyond highway toll payments.

Through the partnership, in the future, motorists will be able to make payment for fuel purchases at Shell stations using the RFID tag installed on their vehicle.

Also, select Shell stations will offer 10,000 TNG RFID tags for free, available until 31 March 2020 (while stocks last). Effective 15 February 2020, TNG RFID tags are sold for MYR35 per tag for each vehicle.

Consumers can currently use Touch ‘n Go eWallet payment at 950 Shell stations nationwide.
