3 days ago I lodged a complaint regarding my Touch ‘n Go balance which had RM7.00 deducted as a penalty due to their system error. I’ve received replies from their Customer Service Executive.

This is the first reply I got…

Dear Mr Melvin Wong,


Greetings to you.

We noted that there was maximum fare charge occurred on your card serial no. 1706412274 for your journey at KTM on 01 November 2007.

In the case of train fare deduction through Touch ‘n Go card, the occurrence of maximum charge may be due to ‘system error’ or failure of user to adhere to proper card usage such as,

1. The card did not have complete transaction (‘touch in’ and ‘touch out’ for previous journey either at KTM-Komuter, LRTs or Monorail) when touch for the new journey.

2. ‘Touch in’ and ‘touch out’ at the same station after more than 1/2 hour/span>

3. ‘Touch in’ at the originating and ‘touch out’ at the exit station execeeded time limit (> 4 hours)

4. Multiple touches at reader upon entry or exit station

We are keen in assisting you and would appreciate if you could furnish us some additional information on the reason(s) for maximum charge to occur, entry and exit stations for the transaction.

We look forward to receiving your reply soon. 
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact our Touch ‘n Go Careline Centre at 03-7628 5115 (7.30am to 7.30pm : Monday to Sunday). We will be glad to assist you.

Upon reading it, I feel that it isn’t a case of user-error.I then proceeded by replying her with more detailed informations in a chronological manner. And this is what I received just now..

It’s gonna take a month to process the complaint. I’m definately crossing my fingers on this. Hopefully I’ll get my refund back or else it would be more feasible to use normal/manual tickets than getting money deducted for nothing..

Anyway, Azlina.. thanks for processing my complaint.

  1. Did u get back ur refund…*sigh just wondering*

  2. i need my money back. i already report in sugai besi office. i lost my money when i used highway.

  3. yea.. i also experienced losing money using touch and go in KTM. First was still accepted reason which I boarded the wrong train and got penalty RM10. It was fine to me. But the second time was so silly of me. I just dun understand why KTM still can operare in such lousy damn service. My touch n go having balance of RM50.60 then deducted till RM 27.80 without any significant reason. I would like to advice KTM passengers not to board the train at teluk pulai station. Damn ktm..

  4. Hey, do you know where I can activate my “tidak sah” Touch N Go card.
    in Seremban?

    Wanted to use to benefit from the rebate thing this year, suddenly realized ive not been using the card for some time now. ha-ha.

    Hope you can help? Thanks 🙂

  5. Hi, i just purchase my Touch N Go a week ago. When i used the card for the first week and feel happy and should give me the feel of ‘convenient’. Somehow, when i use it for the Ampang line LRT on the 02/Sept morning the system was down when i can’t touch out at Hang Tuah station. Was receive a very rude comment from the STAR LRT staff to informed that the T N Go system was down in the evening.

  6. my apologies for not updating my blog….

    aura : you can do it at the Senawang toll, which you might already know by now.

    paulyn : as far as i know, some certain stations are having issues that TnG are double charged. But i managed to get my refunds after making a big fuzz about haha… =p

  7. On 21.12.19 i took the commuter from Senawang to KLSentral,i know, i still had a balance of Rm 30.00,but when i reach KL Sentral,the card exit reader was not functioning well,when ask the KTM officer sitting there,he said it’s ok…so i proceed to take the MRT to TTDI,but the card cannot says incomplete transaction,the lady told me to go back at KTM exit to inquire,but officer could not help me,he said i have to go the office to complain at Level 2,the time was 9.30pm+++,might be closed he said…then i try to swipe again,this time it says insufficient amount…maybe i swipe a few times as i was told….the money was gone….anyway i went back to the MRT station…i had to pay Rm 12.00 to release the insufficient tag,then i reload again Rm 40.00.
    This is my 2nd experience,when it happen the 1st time,i had to buy a new card,the old card still has a small balance.I got a transaction details slip from the MRT counter.
    Please tell me how do i go about it.

    TTDI to MUZIUM NEGARA rm 2.80
    KL SENTRAL to SENAWANG rm 8.90

    Hope u could give me a clear explanation,i could be wrong…but Rm 30.00 should be sufficient to travel 2 ways from KL to Senawang.

    Thank you
