Airtel Money rates and charges

Are you an Airtel Kenya subscriber who has been wondering what the Airtel Money charges are? Well, you are in luck as we’ve got your back as this article provides a complete guide on Airtel Kenya money withdrawal charges as well as other charges connected with this mobile money transfer service.

Long gone are the times when one had to wait for several days or even weeks to collect money sent by a loved one or a friend. Today, with the onset of simple mobile money transfer platforms, sending money across the country is as easy as A-B-C. However, this did not come lightly. Mobile money transfer has come a very long way. Not so long ago, a person could not seamlessly send or receive money across networks. This indicated that sending money from Safaricom to Airtel and other networks was close to unthinkable, given that the money would take too long to display in the receiver’s account and further because the transaction charges were too high. Now, with the launching of mobile money interoperability, one can send money from Airtel Money to MPesa with ease.
