better off getting a 3 day Tourist Pass instead of ez-link?

We are in Singapore for 4 nights next month and were just wondering if we would be better off paying the S$20 for a 3 day unlimited pass (and get S$10 refund on it) I can purchase on our second day there and use from that time to cover our train costs for tours (we have 3 that we need train journeys) plus any other travel by train. Or would we be better off getting the Ez-link?

The 3 day pass is $30 with $10 refundable deposit. So $20 total cost with the hassle of getting a refund. You will be better off an Ezlink card. Save it for you next trip,

ok, the website seemed like it was $20 with a $10 refundable deposit. I didn't realise you had to add the two costs together. In that case it is definitely better to get the Ezlink.

Do Ezlink cards expire, we purchased two of them three years ago, we kept them and we're going back for a long weekend next month?

Thanks

#3 - They have a validity of 5 years from the date of purchase.

Kids 7 and above who are not studying in Singapore schools need an adult card each.

Yes, ez link card is per passenger, you can not use one card all together. Children tourists of the indicated age need an adult card each, just as their parents.
