Motorists travelling along the North-South Highway (PLUS Highway) can now pay for their purchases at selected rest stops (R&R) using debit and credit cards issued by Visa and Mastercard, as well as various e-wallets. Accepted e-wallets include Boost, GrabPay, MAE by Maybank2u (MAE), MPay Wallet, ShopeePay, and Touch ‘n Go (TNG) eWallet.
Prior to this, R&Rs along the North-South Highway only accept cash as the sole method of payment. Now, the R&Rs that are adopting these cashless payment methods include:
A few of the e-wallets that have been enabled at these R&Rs will be running some exclusive promos in conjunction with the rollout of this initiative. If you’re travelling any time soon, you can enjoy the following rebates at the selected R&Rs:
Already ongoing, all the promotions listed above will run until 31 March 2022.
Aside from enabling cashless payment methods for R&Rs, PLUS had also previously mentioned that it may soon allow motorists travelling along the North-South Highway to pay for their toll fares using debit and credit cards. The payment method is currently being tested at selected toll plazas, although no specific locations have been announced. At present, motorists are only able to pay for their toll fares using the TNG RFID, PayDirect, TNG card, and SmartTAG.
