Send airtime online with WorldRemit

What is airtime?

An airtime top-up is a payment made by you, via WorldRemit, to send credit to a recipient’s pre-paid mobile phone plan. This enables them to use the telecom network to send text messages, make phone calls and use mobile data.

The amount of airtime a top-up will give will vary as it is dependent on the local network provider. To obtain this information, you’ll need to get in touch with them.
