Dormancy fee is generally charged when the account is left inactive for a long period of time. YouTrip account’s dormancy fee is SGD$5.00 per month after a period of 12 consecutive months of inactivity. This is meant to cover our costs of maintaining inactive accounts.
To avoid incurring this fee, simply use your YouTrip card for at least 1 transaction within a period of 12 months. Qualifying transactions include those used for purchases locally in Singapore and for online shopping at any Mastercard accepting merchant.
Alternatively, you can also use your YouTrip card for public transport payments on MRT/Buses by signing-up for the Mastercard® Account-Based Ticketing (ABT) function at https://abt.transitlink.com.sg. Find out more about the YouTrip ABT function here.
