What is an airtime top-up?

All prepaid mobile phones need ‘talktime’, ‘credit’, or ‘airtime’ so the user can make calls, send texts and if they have a smartphone, use data. This airtime must be bought before the phone is used. Although prepaid phones can help to avoid an expensive phone bill at the end of the month, it does mean that if the user runs out of airtime, they can’t use the phone until they have topped up.

Sending airtime to Kenya allows those in many countries around the world to top up the phones of family and friends living, working or travelling in Kenya. The airtime is recharged almost immediately which makes it a great way to stay in touch. It also means those in Kenya don’t have to spend their time searching for somewhere to top up their phones.

How does it work?

We’ve made it really simple to send airtime to Kenya so you can complete the mobile recharge in a couple of minutes. All you need to do is:

  • Enter the number of the recipient’s phone
  • Choose the amount of airtime you want to send
  • Pay for the airtime online
  • Both you and the recipient will receive SMS confirmation once the top-up is complete

You can complete the transaction from any device, whether it’s a smartphone, tablet or PC, and you will receive highly competitive exchange rates and zero fees. We also ensure the safety of every transaction with industry-leading payment security.

How can the airtime be used?

Once you have completed your airtime top-up, it will be almost immediately transferred to the recipient’s phone. They will be able to use the airtime credit to make calls, send texts and use data, but they will not be able to transfer the airtime back into cash.
