Malaysia Toll Roads – A guide to toll roads in Malaysia

The large majority of Malaysian Expressways and Highways are toll roads. The toll roads are in excellent condition and make travelling around the country pleasurable.

There are two main types of toll system: closed or open. The tolls are payable in Malaysian Riggit (RM). Depending on the type of toll, you will either need to pay with cash (RM), using the Touch ‘n’ Go card unit or with the use of an on board Smart TAG.

Closed tolls:
If you are approaching a closed toll system, you will need to collect a ticket before driving onto the expressway. You will then pay a certain amount, based on how far you have travelled on exiting the toll road. Many of these closed tollbooths now issue re-usable PLUStransit cards in the place of a ticket.

A list of the toll roads that use the closed system can be found in the table below:

Toll rates in Malaysia:

Toll charges vary depending on the road you are using, as they are each privately owned. There was an increase in charges as of October 2016. In order to give you an idea of prices some examples of specific expressways/highways and their prices have been included below:
  • The Duta-Ulu Kelang Expressway (DUKE): RM2.50
  • The Maju Expressway (MEX): RM2 –RM3.50
  • The Kuala-Lumpur-Karak Highway (KLK): RM6 at the Gombak toll plaza and RM3.50 at the Bentong Toll Plaza.
If you are planning a trip to Malaysia it is highly likely that you will encounter several toll roads. The good news is that the expressways are excellent to drive on and the tolls are not that expensive, in comparison to the cost of some in other parts of the world, including Europe.
