As long as you have enough balance, your tariff package will be automatically prolonged every 30 days. In case you do not have enough balance, the package will be closed and you fall back to the HoT flex tariff where you pay as you go. You will get an SMS if your package cannot be prolonged. If you top up within 30 days, your previously chosen tariff will automatically restart again. If that top up takes place more than 30 days later, you simply could reactivate your tariff manually.

Tip: Enabling Auto top-up ensures you will always have enough credits in your balance worry free.
