What is an airtime top-up?

At WorldRemit, the Uganda airtime top-up option allows the friends and family of those living, working or travelling in Uganda to top-up their airtime from more than 145 countries around the world.

Airtime is what all prepaid mobile phones use to make calls, send texts and use data. Also known as ‘talktime’ or ‘credit’, airtime must be paid for in advance. As soon as the airtime runs out, the phone can no longer be used until it has been topped-up again.

Prepaid mobile phones are very popular in Uganda as they can be used as and when they’re needed without having to pay an expensive bill at the end of the month.
