Critical information summary

A day in the life of Day2Day

  • If you recharge $5 you’ll get $5 credit and up to 5 days to use it.
  • If you call any of our selected international destinations you’ll be deducted $1 per destination from your recharge credit on the day you make the calls.

So for example, if you call the UK on the first day you recharge $5, deductions on that first day will be $1 for your daily inclusions (if not already charged) plus an additional $1 for the international call, reducing your recharge credit to $3, giving you up to 3 days to use it.

I like recharge that lasts me a long time

If the way you use your mobile means life's simpler when one recharge lasts a long time, we've got an offer that will leave you worry free for up to a year.
