Where to buy SmartTAG in KL information
Since these days, I need to drive a lot to do my freelance work around the Klang Valley area, I decided to get a SmartTAG.
SmartTAG stands for Sistem Membayar Automatik Rangkaian Tol or in English it means “Toll Network Automatic Payment Systems”
It is actually a small battery-operated electronic infra-red device that comes with a Touch ‘n Go card.
This device can be used to check the balance on your Touch ‘n Go card too.
You need to mount it on the front windscreen of the car using the provided bracket or holder.
Frankly at first, I did not know where to buy SmartTag in Kuala Lumpur.
After googling around, I found that it is sold at RM130 each inclusive of FREE Touch ‘n Go card with RM10 reload value.
If you just get the SmartTag device alone, it costs RM120 each.
You can purchase your SmartTAG from these places in KL:
– PLUS office
– All Customer Service Centre located at PLUS highways.
– Kaunter Khidmat Pelanggan Touch ‘n Go at selected PETRONAS stations
– Touch ‘n Go Hub at Level 1 of the Departure Hall, KL Sentral
– BH petrol station in Puchong. The one at the highway after the Cyberjaya Toll, heading back to Puchong
– Hicom USJ toll
– Petronas petrol station along the NKVE (between Kota Damansara and Subang)
For those of you who have technical problem with your SmartTAG device and need to be repaired, you can send it via POS Laju or POS Malaysia.

If you do not want to get a SmartTAG, you can just get a useful Touch ‘n Go card.
