Frequently asked questions
How do Vodafone top up offers work?
A top up offer means you pay a certain amount (dependent on what plan you chose) and for this price you will receive lots of great allowances that are included in the plan.
The lifecycle of a top up offer
Example - Smart Extra:
- Opt into Smart Extra by texting SMART EXTRA to 50222. You'll receive a text message confirming that you're registered for the top up offer.
- After you receive your confirmation text, then top up by €20 in full in one go to activate your top up offer and avail of great allowances including data, text and voice allowances.
- The €20.00 will be taken from your balance, this will activate your data, text and voice allowances for you to use as you wish for 28 days .Your balance will be €0.00, unless you topped up by more than €20.00.
- Now you can start using your top up offer. Download the My Vodafone app where you can top up and track your usage.
Important Top Up Tips
- If you top up in the middle of your top up cycle, i.e during your 28 days, your top up offer will reactivate and your allowances will reset.
- Its simple if you want to add credit to your account in the middle of your top up cycle, just top up in increments of €5, €10 or €15.
How long is top up credit valid?
When you top up, you can make calls for 6 months and receive calls for 8 months. After 8 months your call credit will expire.
Once you top up, all previous credit (even expired credit) becomes valid.
- For example, if you go 6 months without topping up but have €5.00 credit left, you won't be able to make calls
- But if you then top up by €10.00, all €15.00 of your credit will be available for making calls over the next 6 months
