Prepaid services are very popular in Croatia, which makes it very easy to buy vouchers to top up your account. You can buy them basically everywhere - in operators' stores, at newsstands or ATMs, in post offices, petrol stations, supermarkets etc.

Vouchers look like receipts with the code printed on it. You need to enter the code, preceeded and followed by certain codes (exampls below). On the voucher itself, there are guidelines on how to use the voucher. Here is what you need to enter in the dialing interface for different networks:

T-Mobile (Simpa or Bonbon): *123*12345678912345#

-> format: *123* + 14 digits printed on the voucher +# -> then 'call' the entered combination

VIPnet (Vip or Tomato): *123*12345678912345#

Tele2: *123*12345678912345#

-> format: *131* + 13 digits printed on the voucher + # -> then 'call' the entered combination

After dialling the complete code, instantly or in the next few minutes you should get either an SMS or a notification that your account has been topped-up.
