Airtel Kenya buy bundles & services menu

In this post, I am going to show you the different items you can buy on your Airtel Kenya line via the Buy Bundles & Services menu: Amazing Data Bundles, Tubonge bundles, roaming bundles, SMS bundles and International bundles.

I’m also going to briefly touch on other things you can do on the menu: Check your data balance, Kopa airtime, Kopa internet bundles, Kopa UnlimiNET bundles and check if your Airtel Kenya SIM / phone is 4G capable.

How to access the Buy Bundles & Services menu on your Airtel line

  • Dial *100# on your phone, smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer (if using a modem or MiFi router)
  • Select option 4. Buy Bundles & Services

What can you buy in the Buy Bundles & Services menu

Buy amazing data bundles

Under this option you can buy daily bundles, 7 day bundles, 30 day bundles, 90 day bundles and UnlimiNet Modem bundles.

 Note: This post may contain affiliate links. When you click on something I recommend and purchase it, I will receive a commission for the sale – at no extra cost to you. 

All these bundles only have a data component.

If you want access to free WhatsApp or free YouTube, some of these bundles have that. For example, purchasing the 2 GB daily bundle at Kenya Shillings 99 also gets you free WhatsApp.

If you purchase the monthly 10 GB at KSh 1000, you’ll also get an extra 5 GB free data to watch videos on YouTube.

Some of the best bundles in this category:

  • Daily: Club Night (250 MB Night Data), 8 MB @ 5, 40 MB @ 10, 2 GB + WhatsApp @ 99, 400 MB + WhatsApp @ 50.

With Tubonge Plus bundles, you still get 100 free minutes to call other Airtel Kenya phone numbers like the Tubonge Voice bundles above.

The only twist is that you get to call other networks at 2 Shillings per minute.

Plus there is a bundle with a data component.

So, on top of calling, you also get some data to browse the web.

All the bundles in this menu are currently valid for just 24 hours.

Buy UnlimiNET combo bundles

UnlimiNET combo bundles are like the all in one monthly bundles sold by Safaricom or Telkom Kenya.

The bundles (not all) combine voice, text and data components.

As a subscriber, you can just pay up for a bundle and get all your calling, texting and browsing needs met – with one bundle.

Gift a bundles

Airtel Kenya has made it easy for their subscribers to share bundles with their friends and family – as gifts. If you want to buy a bundle for another phone number, the easiest way to do it is via the Gift a Bundle option.

Buy roaming bundles

When travelling outside the country, you can buy Airtel Kenya roaming bundles for these two reasons:

  • to enjoy affordable calling rates in the country you visit
  • to call home cheaply. Roaming bundles make calling phone numbers / people back in Kenya cheap.

Some roaming bundles combine voice, text and data.

I wrote a post about these bundles here. To learn more, click the following link: Buy Airtel Kenya roaming bundles & check balance.

Check if your SIM card or phone is 4G enabled

And the last item / option in the menu, is the one you can use to check if:

I wrote a post about this, showing you step by step instructions on how to check if your SIM / phone supports 4G. Read How to check if Airtel Kenya SIM card is 4G enabled for more.

In the post, I also link to a few 4G MiFi routers you can buy online on Jumia Kenya shop. The routers are unlocked – and can also work with Safaricom and Telkom Kenya SIM cards. And they support 4G, 3G and 2G. Read the post here.
