We've all been there, and it's super annoying seeing all the other cars zoom past you.

This means that you won't have to go out of your way to the ATM, petrol station, or tambah nilai toll booth just to reload your card. All you have to do is top up your Touch 'n Go eWallet and you'll be ready to Terus Go and drive past toll booths with no hassle thanks to PayDirect.

What's even more awesome is that you'll get to enjoy 20% toll rebates at participating highways from now till June 2019

These are the participating highways where PayDirect has been enabled, with many more to be added soon. So, if you regularly drive on these highways, you'll want to make sure you activate your Touch 'n Go PayDirect to save time and save money!

Head over to Touch 'n Go eWallet's website to stay updated on the latest participating highways.

The all-new PayDirect feature on Touch 'n Go eWallet helps you save time and save money, and it's as simple as 1, 2, 3!

1. Add your Touch 'n Go card to the eWallet

  1. Click 'TNG Card'
  2. Click 'Add TNG Card Now'
  3. Insert your 10-digit card serial number you'll find at the back of your Touch 'n Go card. If you're using your IC, look for the serial number in the receipt slip when you top up the card.

2. Reload your Touch 'n Go eWallet

Once your card is added to the eWallet, you can now use PayDirect (which deducts from your eWallet balance instead of your card balance) at participating highways. All you have to do is make sure your eWallet is always reloaded.

The nice thing is that you won't have to worry about RM0.50 service charges when you reload your eWallet. You can also set an auto-reload function so you never have to worry about running out of credit.

3. Activate your PayDirect and Terus Go by using it at a participating highway

It's super easy to activate the PayDirect function. Once you've completed the steps above, just tap your Touch 'n Go card or use your Smart Tag at one of the participating highways for the first time, and PayDirect will be activated.

Now, whenever you pass through a toll at a participating highway, it will deduct from your eWallet instead of your physical Touch 'n Go card. The only times your Touch 'n Go card credit will be deducted is when:

  • Your eWallet is out of credit
  • You pass through a toll at a non-participating highway

Another awesome feature of the Touch 'n Go eWallet is that you can monitor all your toll expenditure on your phone

It even tells you when you used your card to pay and when you used your eWallet.

Remember, sharing is caring! When you first activate Touch 'n Go PayDirect, you'll get 20% toll rebates for your first 10 toll trips. But you can get 5 extra rebates each time you invite a friend, up to 50 times. The toll rebate promotion lasts till June 2019, so make the most of it while you can!
