Highway operator PLUS is offering toll rebates of up to 30% for this Hari Raya. The 30% rebate will be offered for six days in total – from June 19-21, June 28-29 and July 3.

“It is part of an effort to distribute traffic during festive season and at the same time, reward our customers for their continuous support. The toll rebate is also offered in conjunction with the implementation of the full electronic toll transactions on all PLUS-operated highways since April 26,” said PLUS MD Datuk Azman Ismail.

Meanwhile, Touch n Go cardholders will be able enjoy a 10% toll rebate on the designated dates. “The 30% toll rebate for transactions via PLUSMiles cards is aimed at rewarding PLUSMiles loyal customers for their support. The 10% toll rebate, on the other hand, is given for electronic toll transactions via normal Touch n Go cards,” Azman explained.

Both rebates – PLUSMiles and TnG – are being offered to Class 1 highway users travelling more than 100 km on PLUS-operated highways. They can be enjoyed all day on the selected dates. Highway users will still pay toll in full, with the 30% and 10% rebates coming in a form of reloads, credited when users top up their cards at all PLUS customer service centres from July 15 till October 14.

The toll rebates are not offered for toll payments at Bukit Kayu Hitam, Bangunan Sultan Iskandar, Tanjung Kupang and Penang Bridge toll plazas.

As is the norm during festive seasons, PLUS has released a travel time advisory (TTA) to distribute traffic on the mainline on peak travel dates. The TTA prevents vehicles from converging at the same locations and time, which contributes to congestion. PLUS is predicting that 1.7 million vehicles will ply the North-South Expressway on peak days during Raya, a 21% increase over normal days.
