You may top up Grab Singapore with Malaysian RHB visa card

At Singapore, Malaysian will not be able to see Grab Malaysia interface even with balance of RM100. The urge to use Grab car service among the youngsters are on the rise. Singapore has efficient public transportation. However, Grab has lenient rules one may bring pet, large luggage, eat or drink. In fact, the rise of Grab car are likely due to youngsters cant get MRT and public bus after midnight.

It seem like Visa does have a higher fee. RM154.79 for SGD50 is about 0.323 rate.

A current exchange rate from SGD to MYR is 3.01. RM154.79 should get SGD51.42.

Anyways, you will need a RHB visa card plus counter activation to do top up your Grab Singapore balance.

KLIA2 fee and Visa charge on every ticket purchase.

2019 Airasia Ticket

2019 Airasia ticket

No Visa processing charge, there is no need to use online banking method to buy Airasia ticket with a RM4.00+ fee. Besides, news about KLIA2 fee abolished early January 2019 only applied to those board flight through Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2.

The issue with visa charge was a serious matter prompted Bank Negara's public statement. Rumor said the culprits behind exaggerated visa charge are now being charged at court early January 2019. The exorbitant visa processing fee caused lots of complaints among the foreign travelers.

The truth is Airasia are honest on ticket. RM16.00 for visa processing fee despite Bank Negara warning statement. Proof Visa processing fee RM16.00

Airasia 2018 Ticket

Airasia 2018 ticket
KLIA2 fee abolished. RSC charged on every passenger. Online banking charge

Passenger service charge is the airport charge. Every passenger are required to pay RM11.00 one-way. On a return ticket for two persons, airport earned a total of RM44.00 in any airport nationwide. Not to mention, shop rental and really nice RM20.00 buffet.

On top of that, RM3 klia2 fee was a fee needed to be paid by every passenger onboard on KLIA2 until it was revised on early January 2019. On a return ticket, RM6.00 was a bearable cost. No doubt there was transparency in Airasia ticket.

The dire issue was not just KLIA2 fee or the RSC believed to be implemented in 2018. The issue was "Visa charge". One of the cheapest fee to get Airasia ticket through online during 2017 - 2018 was "Online banking".

2017 Airasia Ticket

Airasia transparent ticket system

The truth about Airasia ticket system is purely amazing. Like a real-time ticket service. The proof is the ticket system is able to do update after I paid cash at the counter on flight day. The RM79.50 charge was not previously in the online receipt, updated into the online receipt after I took the flight.

No one in Malaysia had a right mind to make an Airasia booking using their debit/credit card simply because there was a charge higher than the online banking. The card offered by Airasia to waive processing fee, it was just not doable and has cost to bear too.

Yes, the Airasia visa processing is no longer apply at least for me. Someone exposing wrongdoings on Visa processing charge
