There’s nothing more embarrassing nor frustrating when you’re caught off-guard with insufficient Touch ‘n Go card balance at the toll booth, especially when it also means holding up traffic behind you. There are plenty of places where you can reload your card; now Touch ‘n Go is making it easier to locate card reload touchpoints across the country—through Waze.
Everybody’s favourite navigation app Waze can now help you locate the nearest zero-fee Touch ‘n Go card reload points. Yes, ones that don’t charge you 50 sen to top up.
What Touch ‘n Go and Waze have done here is list the 500 reload points that do not charge a fee, within the app. Otherwise, there are over 11,000 reload points scattered across the country–from convenience stores to dedicated reload machines.
To use the new feature, all you need to do is fire up the Waze app on your phone and type “Touch n Go” in the search box. Waze will list the nearest reload points at the search results screen.
Touch ‘n Go says this new initiative brings further convenience to Malaysian road users, allowing them to plan their journeys ahead and to ensure their Touch ‘n Go cards have sufficient balance for their trips.
There are 500 zero-fee Touch ‘n Go reload points listed on Waze; Touch ‘n Go plans to add RFID Fitment centres and surcharge-free parking sites to the navigation app in the near future. For the full list of zero-fee reload points, hit this link.
As you may already know, you can link up to three Touch ‘n Go cards to the Touch ‘n Go eWallet. Once linked, you can manage and view your cards’ balance. You can also activate the PayDirect feature that allows toll charges to be deducted from the e-wallet when you use the linked physical card at supported highways. This can be used in tandem with a SmartTAG device as well. You can enable auto-reload for the Touch ‘n Go eWallet for an even more hassle-free experience.
As a complement to physical Touch ‘n Go card and SmartTAG, you can get your vehicle fitted with RFID for free at any available fitment centre. RFID enables you to drive through myRFID lanes at support tolled highways. Toll charges are automatically deducted from the Touch ‘n Go eWallet.
Effective 5 November this year, PLUS Malaysia (PLUS) ceased TNG reload facilities at all toll plaza exit lanes. The move was to reduce congestion and smoothen traffic flow on toll highways.
