Apart from airtime, you can also borrow data from Airtel and payback later at your convenience. We have written posts on how to transfer airtime on Airtel and how to borrow airtime from Airtel in previous posts.
In order to improve on its quality service delivery, Airtel launched the “Airtel Credit Loan Service”. This service allows a subscriber to borrow data whenever they run out of data and pay back at a later date upon their next recharge.
You can borrow up to 1.5gb data on the Airtel credit loan service. See the table below for data loan offers. Bear in mind that a 15% service charge fee applies on any amount of data you borrow which is payable upon the next recharge on your airtel sim. See how to borrow airtime from MTN.
|Data Loan in MB||Data Bundle Price||Validity (Days)||Total Amount Payable (15% Service Fee)|
|1||10||NGN 50||1||NGN 57.50|

You can repay your loan data by recharging your Airtel sim on your next purchase. You can pay at any time convenient for you but make sure you clear any outstanding loans to airtel so that you can qualify for another. See how to borrow airtime from 9mobile.
Airtel Credit Loan Service can be a lifesaver for you especially when you are stranded on cash to make a data purchase immediately. This initiative from airtel is laudable and it cements its place as one of Nigeria’s top mobile service providers. See how to link NIN to Airtel.
