What are the instances where holding-of-funds transaction is done to my account?
A pre-authorisation amount of RM200 is charged for petrol purchases made at the outdoor pump. The pre-authorisation amount will then be reversed and the actual amount will be charged upon settlement by the merchant within 3 days. You may opt to pay at the cashier with the CIMB Debit Mastercard to avoid the pre-authorisation holding.
At the local PETRONAS outdoor pump:
- there will be no pre-authorisation amount charged; and
- you are required to key in your 6-digit PIN at the terminal.
Hotels charge a pre-authorisation amount upon check-in, depending
on the duration of stay. During check-out, the pre-authorisation amount will be reversed and the actual amount will be charged.
