Thread: Increased toll fee to RM 20 for Singapore vehicles entering Malaysia

  1. #1

    Default Increased toll fee to RM 20 for Singapore vehicles entering Malaysia

    Will the toll fee hike stop Singaporeans from going to Malaysia like JB for shopping, eating, etc? The answer is No, given the sharp depreciation of the RM recently, many Singaporeans flocked to Malaysia for shopping spree. What is RM 20 to them?

    Yes. Even RM 100 will not deter Singaporeans from going to Malaysia.

    We might see more 7-seaters picked to the rim instead of cars with only the driver inside.

    If robbers and thieves can't deter us from going to JB for cheap goods and services nothing will.

    no difference. it's only an increase at the causeway tolls, not the entire Malaysia.

    unless of course parking, other toll charges along the highways, eateries demand to see ID before you pay etc are the future of heading into malaysia, so as to charge Singaporeans extra

    We are assuming that the intent is to ease the congestion

    I always put on an old Tshirt and shorts and wear Japanese slippers when I enter JB.

    Always get local price and friendly service.

    No, the intent as officially stated is cost recovery for the road infrastructure built due to the links.

    If you are a female Malaysian customs would welcome you in such attire.
