What is Safaricom airtime?

Airtime is something that all prepaid Safaricom mobile phones need so that calls can be made, texts can be sent and data can be used. Unlike contract phones, airtime must be bought in advance. If a Safaricom phone runs out of airtime then it cannot be used again until it has been topped up.

Finding somewhere that sells ‘airtime’ or ‘credit’ is not always easy, particularly if shops are closed or out of reach. A Safaricom airtime top-up allows family and friends in countries like the UK, the US, Canada, Australia and many more to top-up the phones of loved ones in Kenya so they can stay in touch.

How do you buy Safaricom airtime online?

All you need is the phone number of your friend or family member in Kenya to perform a Safaricom airtime top-up. The process is simple:

  • Select the ‘Airtime’ service

  • Enter the recipient’s phone number

  • Choose how much airtime you want to send and pay online

The top-up will be made in minutes. Both you and the recipient will receive SMS confirmation once the transfer is complete.

What is a Safaricom phone?

Safaricom is Kenya’s leading mobile phone network. It provides the widest and strongest coverage in the country and is also home to the M-PESA Mobile Money service. That means that as well as sending airtime to Safaricom phones, with WorldRemit, you can also send cash directly to the recipient’s phone so they can buy goods and services in physical stores.
