In Singapore, you need the cash card for the ERP. In Malaysia, you will need the Touch’nGo card for all the tolls. I never liked topping up the Touch’nGo card at the toll station or at petrol kiosks. This trip, I found a new and more pleasant way to top it up.
I became a member of Watsons Malaysia. Huh? What does that have to do with Touch’nGo? Watsons in Malaysia in their clever bit of marketing gave all its members a membership card which is also a Touch’nGo card.
That means that apart from enjoying discounts and other privileges as a Watsons member in Malaysia, I can also top up my Touch’nGo at any Watsons outlet across Malaysia at no extra cost or condition. Cost of signing up as a member at any Watsons store? RM18. Worth every cent! Great marketing, Watsons.
