In this period your account will be automatically renewed if you refill your account with the required amount (please note that any credit that is on the card remains until the end of the grace period). You will not be able to make calls during this grace period, however you will be able to receive calls. The account is finally closed (deactivated) at the end of the grace period if no (or not enough) credit is applied.
We quote all our monthly airtime plans in US Dollars (excluding VAT) because this is the currency that Iridium, Inmarsat and Thuraya work in.
If you sign up for a monthly plan with a direct debit you will receive your invoice in GB Pounds Sterling converted from US Dollars using the prevailing exchange rate at the time of billing.
Monthly plans have a minimum term, the first month's service charge is pro rata, the last month's is not and is payable in full.
