EZ-Link has just launched a new smart card that comes with dual currency for use in Malaysia.
EZ-Link x Touch ‘n Go Card
Created to save the hassle of owning two or more cards when travelling across the border to Johor or other Malaysian cities, the new EZ-Link x Touch ‘n Go comes with dual currency support (SGD and MYR) in a single card.
That means travellers can simply make payments for highway and checkpoint tolls, parking, shopping and dining purchases using the new card.
In Singapore, motorists can also use the card for ERP, checkpoint tolls and selected carpark fees.
The dual currency card arrived just in time, as the cross-border travel between Singapore and Malaysia gets a reboot from 17 August.
How to top up?
According to EZ-Link, the card holds two electronic purses and top-ups done in Singapore will only be in SGD and will not auto-convert to Malaysian Ringgit.
For topping up ringgit, you can refer to this list (or see image below) for top-up locations with no reload fee in Malaysia provided by Touch ‘n Go.
Available on Lazada
Motorists interested can purchase the EZ-Link x Touch ‘n Go card from online marketplace Lazada at $7 each with no load value.
It is currently sold out at the moment of this writing but it is likely EZ-Link will restock soon.
