  • Tariff Information

    Orange offer a range of Pay As You Go tariffs with differing benefits. Some tariffs include benefits that are automatically applied, while others are based on a minimum monthly top-up. As with other Orange tariffs, Pay As You Go plans are separated into different categories represented by animals.

    Monkey tariffsThe ‘Monkey’ tariff is aimed at music lovers and provides access to free music through Orange’s online music player. To qualify for free music, customers must top-up a minimum amount each month. Top ups also reward users with free texts and a small daily internet allowance, with larger top-ups providing more text messages.

    Dolphin tariffsThe ‘Dolphin’ tariff offers users free texts and internet every month that they top-up. Larger top-ups earn larger data allowances and more free texts.


    Canary TariffsThe ‘Canary’ tariff offers free evening and weekend minutes and texts to customers. All minutes and messages must be used on weekends or between 7pm and 7am on weekdays, and more are earned for higher top-ups.

    Racoon tariffsThe ‘Racoon’ plan doesn’t offer any special benefits for topping up minimum amounts each month, but instead offers Orange’s lowest standard call rate. Raccoon plans lack some of the added benefits of other Orange Pay As You Go plans, such as Magic Numbers or Reserve Tank.

    Camel tariffsFinally, the ‘Camel’ tariff is aimed at people who frequently make international calls. This tariff includes low international rates and free international calling minutes users who top up over a minimum amount per month. Note that only selected countries are included in these offers.
