How can I receive IOU credit?

Never get stuck without credit. Now there are two ways to get IOU credit with Vodafone - IOU credit and IOU Buddy.

Vodafone IOU & Super IOU

With Vodafone IOU, you can get a €2 or €4 boost of credit to keep you going until the next time you top up. So when you get that punctured tyre or absolutely have to respond to that special someone... you can! The next time you top up, you'll be charged for the amount of the IOU you used plus 15c for a €2 IOU or 30c for a €4 Super IOU.

How do I get it?

Vodafone IOU Buddy

With IOU Buddy, you can ask any of your friends or family for call credit if you're running low, or you can send some call credit to a buddy in need to say thanks, or even if you're just feeling generous! You can send or request any amount between €2 and €20.

How do I get it?

  • Ask for a lend - Just text "ASK" followed by your Buddy's number and the amount you need to 50223. So you would text "Ask 0872233445 8" if you needed €8 credit.
  • Want to say thanks or send a little gift to someone who's running low? Just text "SEND" followed by your friend's number and the amount to 50223. So texting "Send 0871234567 5" will send your friend €5 credit.
  • You can also manage all your IOU Buddy requests on My Vodafone.
