Currently, there are 16 highways in Malaysia that support Touch ‘n Go’s PayDirect feature, which provides road users with the convenience of paying for toll charges with their eWallet via their existing TnG cards.

Soon, the company is set to expand that list to include closed-system tolls such as the PLUS Highway, Elite Highway, NKVE and LEKAS Highway, bringing the total number up to 20 highways. However, there’s no timeline on when this will happen for now.

To get PayDirect working, you will first need a TnG eWallet account. Next, you must link your Touch n’ Go cards to the eWallet app (up to three allowed). Whenever a linked card is used at any of the listed highways (SmartTAG or by reader), the toll charge will be automatically deducted from the eWallet balance instead of balance on the physical card itself.

In the event there are insufficient funds in the eWallet, the fare will be deducted from the physical card’s balance instead. You can ensure that you have a sufficient balance in your eWallet by enabling the auto-reload feature in the eWallet. whereby funds are automatically added to the eWallet whenever the balance dips below a certain preset amount.

The auto-reload action can be set via phone app, with payment made using a credit or debit card, online banking, as well as TNG Reload PINs with no additional fees.
