Airtel Tariff Plans: Benefits, Bonuses and Migration Codes

There are various Airtel tariff plans available on the Airtel Network. Choosing a tariff plan that suits your budget, plans are great, and that is the reason why there are various tariff plans in the first place. The ability to choose the one that best suits your need.

What I discovered is that people don’t even know the tariff plan they are, which is the major reason why some persons are charged higher than others, on the same network.

Tariff plans come with a specific purpose, some tariffs are amazingly great for those making international calls, while others are the best for data plans, and others for friends and families. You just need to pick the one that suits your need the most.

Before sharing the list of all available and working Airtel Tariff plans, I’ll want to explain first, the meaning of a tariff plan.

What is Tariff Plan?

This is a broad explanation of what a Tariff plan is. First, you need to know that there is two types of tariffs, also called rate or price plans, depending on the terminology used different billing system.

There could be different types of charges to be applied for a product and associated services.

Airtel has a lot of cheap tariff plans that are both affordable and migration-easy. Affordable in the sense that it provides subscribers, a cheaper rate for calling, internet subscription, and other added services.

So to choose a tariff plan, you need to choose a tariff plan that best suits your need.

Airtel tariff plan

Airtel smartCONNECT.

The first on this list is the Airtel SmartCONNECT tariff plan. When you buy a new Simcard, you’re automatically added to the Airtel SmartConnect tariff, because it is Airtel’s default tariff bonus plan for new prepaid customers.

All subscribers on the Airtel SmartCONNECT enjoy 8x bonuses on every recharge they make.

It is for prepaid customers and it offers a 100% INSTANT bonus on every data bundle plus 8 times bonus on every recharge. It’s very similar to Glo Yakata.

How to Migrate to Airtel SmartCONNECT.

There is no Airtel SmartConnect migration code. To migrate to the Airtel SmartConnect plan, all you need to do is simply buy a new sim card and recharge your sim. Automatically, the Airtel SmartConnect tariff plan is activated on your new Simcard.

Another bonus I failed to mention is that you will also enjoy (seven) 7 Hours of night call between 11 pm and 6 am at 11k/sec to any Network.

Airtel SmartPREMIER Tariff Plan.

Another tariff plan/package that is created to meet the need of the general public is the Airtel SmartPremier. This tariff plan is both cheap and portable. You should note that migrating to smartPREMIER is free.

Subscribers on the SmartPremier tariff plan pay 40kobo/seconds for the 1st-minute call of the day. You’ll be charged 40kobo for the first-minute call, and this applies to both local and international calls and this is mutually exclusive.

For example, the first-minute call you’ll be making for the day for a local call (calls to any network within the country) is charged at 40k/seconds. However, after 1 minute has elapsed, you’ll be charged at 11k/sec. For those making international calls, the 1st minute of the day for international call is charged at 40k/sec and the following calls (local/international) are charged at 11k/sec.

The Airtel SmartPREMIER tariff plan is suitable for those who make lots of calls, both international and locally on a daily basis.

This tariff plan is divided into two. There is the Smart Premier Platinum with N5000 and Smart Premier Platinum Plus with N10,000.

To make this tariff more intriguing, Airtel ensures that all subscribers to this plan will be receiving calls for free while roaming for up to 500 minutes/month and you get a generous data bonus on every recharge for up to 150MB.

Airtel SmartTALK 2.0 Package.

When asked which is the cheapest Tariff plan on the Airtel Network, my answer is always Airtel SmartTALK 2.0, and here’s why this tariff plan is the cheapest on Airtel.

Active subscribers on the Airtel smartTALK 2.0 can make calls to all networks in Nigeria at 11kobo per second (from the very 1st second) for a daily access fee of N6 charged on your first call of the day. Yes, you’ll be charged only N6 on your first call, while other subsequent calls are 11kobo/seconds throughout the day.

No, this package is not reserved only to calls made within the nation, you can also make international calls at 20kobo per second to the USA, Canada, China, India, and UK Landline.

With the best rates on data and calls to all networks, night browsing for your favorite movies, series and music, and special weekend deals, you never miss a thing.

On your first recharge of N100, you’ll automatically receive 5MB, and the 2nd N100 recharge within that week, you’re automatically rewarded with 10MB to make up the expected 15MB in one week. The maximum every week is 15MB.
