Call Costs: South Africa

Airtime

Airtime is widely available in South Africa, and can be purchased at most convenience stores, petrol stations and all major national retail chains.

If you are travelling to remote parts of South Africa or national parks such as the Kruger, it is advisable to ensure you have enough airtime before you head out. Airtime is sold in various denominations with the most popular denominations being R5, R12, R29, R55, R110 and R275.

A R1000 voucher which includes 10% extra credit is also a good option for long stays.

FREE incoming calls, incoming SMSs, (national or international) & voicemail retrieval within the borders of South Africa.
