How to Top up Your Croatian Mobile Phone Account
If you decide to buy a Croatian mobile number with prepaid service, you might occasionally have to top up your account.
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#
-> format: *103* + 14 digits printed on the voucher + # -> then 'call' the entered combination
-> 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.
What voucher values is it possible to buy?
Each operator has its own voucher values. If you buy the more expensive ones, your SIM card's validity expires later and you might get lower prices, depending on the tariff you choose. Here are the voucher values per operator:
Bonbon: 10, 20, 40, 80 and 160 HRK
