Get your Touch ‘n Gos and SmartTAGs ready by 12pm on 14 August, because you won’t be able to use cash to pay at all 177 toll plazas throughout Malaysia after that.

So far, 158 toll plazas have already implemented Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), with the remainder on the Phase 1 East Coast Expressway (LPT1), which connects Karak to Jabur, and Phase 2 East Coast Expressway (LPT2), which connects Jabur to Kuala Nerus. 

You can purchase Touch ‘n Go cards at over 4,000 places nationwide, including most shopping malls – click here to see a list of self-serving kiosks near you. SmartTAG devices can be purchased at Touch ‘n Go hubs in Bangsar South and Nu Sentral in Kuala Lumpur, through online orders from Touch ‘n Go Malaysia, or on e-commerce sites like Lazada.

Each toll plaza should have dedicated reload lanes, but you can also reload at Touch ‘n Go sales counters. If that’s too much of a hassle, banks like CIMB and Maybank offer auto-reload cards that are linked to credit cards and give limited rebates. 

Take note that certain highways like the South Klang Valley Expressway (SKVE) requires a minimum reload of RM30 if you do it at the toll plaza, so make sure you have enough in your card before heading out.

Forgot your Touch ‘n Go? If you have a MyKad, a Tesco Clubcard or a Watsons VIP Card, no problem – they should both have Touch ‘n Go functionality. Just queue up at the reload lane to load up your card and off you go.  

Note: From 17-21 July, you can get a complimentary Touch ‘n Go card from the Touch ‘n Go Customer Experience Centre in Bangsar South from 11am-6pm. It even comes with a twice-monthly RM5 discount on Grab rides to and from any LRT or MRT stations until 31 October!
