Raya Haji is a joyous time for reunions and celebrations. But for many Malaysians, it also means navigating the busy highways. Tolls can add stress if you're unprepared. Here's how to ensure a smooth toll journey during Raya Haji:

Plan Your Trip, Avoid Peak Hours:

Raya Haji Traffic: Traffic spikes during specific times. Research travel advisories from PLUS  or Anih Berhad to identify peak hours and plan accordingly.

Toll-Free Windows: Luckily, the Malaysian government often announces toll-free windows during Raya. Stay updated on official announcements to potentially avoid tolls altogether.

Ensure Sufficient Balance:

Carry Backup: Consider having a backup payment method, like a secondary ETC card with enough balance or cash for emergencies.

Be Smart at the Toll Booth:

Dedicated Lanes: Look for designated lanes for your payment method (ETC, cash, etc.) to avoid delays.

Double-Check: Briefly check your receipt to ensure the toll charge is accurate, especially during peak hours.
