If you have yet to install your Touch 'n Go (TNG) radio frequency identification system (RFID) tag, you can get it on the app or online and install it yourself for just RM35

Many of the main highways nationwide have been supporting RFID technology in recent years.

The technology allows vehicles to pass through toll gates efficiently and helps to reduce traffic congestion. It's also meant to be more convenient and keeps drivers from fussing around to look for their TNG cards or SmartTAGs.

Although you can get the RFID tag installed at the fitment centres, you can also do it yourself at home by purchasing a self-fitment RFID tag on TNG's official Lazada and Shopee stores for RM35.

Alternatively, you can buy it on the TNG app and receive a RM5 cashback and free delivery.
