If you’re unsure of where to get them or what to use them for, you’ve come to the right place — here’s your go-to guide on where to buy stored value cards like CashCard in Singapore.
What stored value cards are available in Singapore?
There are a few different types of stored value cards in Singapore like CashCard, NETS Flashpay, and the EZ-Link card. There’s also the NETS Motoring Card, which was just rolled out earlier this year. Let’s take a closer look at each of them.
NETS CashCard and NETS Flashpay card
NETS CashCard is a stored value card that’s used for making payment at car parks and Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) gantries.
To use them while driving, simply insert the card into your In-vehicle Unit (IU) device, which enables payments to be deducted automatically at gantries. Before buying one of these cards, be sure to check if it’s compatible with your vehicle’s IU device so that your payments go through successfully.
Please take note that the NETS CashCard is set to be phased out and replaced by the NETS Motoring Card.
