Travel Privilege Card PenangHere I am with the Travel Privilege Card Penang (1 March, 2016)


How do you stretch your money when you visit Malaysia? As you probably can understand, the entrance fee to many of Malaysia's worth-visiting museums and sights, put together, can be quite a healthy sum. Wouldn't it be nice if you can get a discount for visiting them?

Your answer, is to get the Travel Privilege Card (Malaysia). Originally created for sights in Penang, it has now been expande3d to sights elsewhere in the country. As of May 2017, an increasing number of sights in Perak, Kedah (Langkawi), Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor have signed up to participate.

Tourism Malaysia, working in conjunction with the Penang Tourist Centre, has now come out with the Travel Privilege Card - Penang. Priced at RM25 each, this is a discount card entitling the holder and his family (up to a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children for each time of usage) a 20% discount for patronising participating outlets. In addition, you can now enjoy a 15% discount for meals at participating restaurants.

The Travel Privilege Card is valid for the whole year. Around September of each year, a new card is issued that is valid until 31 December of the following year. All you need to do is to present the card at the following participating outlet to enjoy your discount. There is no limit to the number of times you use this card. The card is available now at Penang Tourist Centre office at King Edward Place, as well as at an increasing number of outlets.
