Great news for Dubai drivers, you can now top up your Salik like you would your phone with prepaid scratch cards.
The Salik scratch cards are available in denominations of Dhs50, Dhs100, and Dhs200. Earlier, motorists had to top up their Salik accounts at the customer service centres of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTAor petrol stations.
"The aim of introducing the prepaid Salik scratch cards is to provide the Salik users easy access to the service at any time, and in a way that saves their time and effort," Maitha Obaid Bin Udai said, CEO of the RTA's Traffic and Roads Agency.
She said that the RTA would also soon introduce other multiple options to top up Salik accounts through credit cards, e-Dirham or direct debit from bank accounts, in collaboration with Dubai e-Government. "We are currently working on finalising these options," she added.
She said the new system is easy to use. Each Salik scratch card has a secret code to be scratched by the client for crediting the Salik account.
