Running low on data just when you need it most? Airtel’s got your back with their handy data loan facility! Borrowing 1GB is quick and easy, ensuring you stay connected even when your data pack runs dry. Here’s your guide to navigating this lifesaver:
Minimum 3 months of Airtel prepaid service on your number.
Good recharge history is preferred.
Ways to Access the Loan:
USSD Code: Dial 5673# on your phone. You’ll receive a confirmation message if eligible. Reply with “1” to accept the loan.
SMS: You might receive an SMS from Airtel (56321) offering a data loan when your data pack depletes. Simply reply with “1” to activate it.
Airtel Thanks App: Open the app and head to the “Recharge” section. Look for the “Data Loan” option and follow the on-screen instructions.
Amount: 1GB of data only.
Validity: 2 days from activation. Unused data expires thereafter.
Charges: A nominal service fee will be deducted from your main balance when you avail the loan.
Repayment: The loan amount and service fee will be auto-deducted from your next recharge.
Things to Remember:
Data loans are a temporary solution, not a substitute for regular recharges.
Repayment is crucial to avoid late fees and impacting your future loan eligibility.
Consider alternative options like buying smaller data packs if you frequently need temporary data boosts.
Airtel also offers talktime loans and emergency balance services via USSD codes 1417# and *141# respectively.
