More Salik twists...

I just received a message from Salik that my account needs topping up.

Strange, I thought, I've only been through the tollgates six times, which means I still have Dh26 in my account.

Scrolling through the message I found the answer - which was a surprise. "Balance of 30AED is below the set recharge value." it told me.

Set recharge value? Do we know about this? I didn't. I haven't seen that anywhere. Have I missed it?

Anyway, I went into the website and eventually found the page that lets me manage and top up my account.

Another surprise - I couldn't top it back up to the original Dh50 because the minimum amount accepted is Dh50.

A 'set recharge value' of Dh30 and a minimum top up of Dh50. Have I misssed the information on all this? Does everyone but me know about it?

There is no set recharge value. My guess its just poor English to get people to top up their accounts. A friend of mine paid 500 to Salik only to get the same message: AED480 is below the set recharge level.

I got the same msg the first time around I'd used Salik ... but I recharged at Dhs 16 or something the 2nd time around and all was okay...
I'd recharged my tag last night with Dhs 100 when it was only at Dhs 2 ... but it still hasn't recharged... what do I do??? :(
