Have you wondered which is more beneficial - Recharge on Annually basis or Monthly? We come across a lot of enquiries on what is the best choice when it comes to Prepaid recharge. Airtel, Reliance Jio, and Vi (Vodafone Idea) all the top companies have different user plans, with added benefits.

Recharging every month is quite a task, and at times we forget about the expiry date and exhaust our outstanding balance while on some days, it feels that the prepaid pack should have lasted a bit longer. Online recharge is done with just a few clicks, but it is a tiresome task for people who do it through other means.

So, for users who find it wearying to recharge every 28 days, Vodafone, Jio and Airtel have some attractive prepaid plans that will benefit you. These plans not only provide unlimited prepaid benefits but extra perks like OTT Membership and more. Let us begin with some of the best plans for your annual recharge plans.

Best Airtel Prepaid Plans

Airtel offers a 'Truly Unlimited' yearly prepaid with daily data, unlimited calls, and SMS per day with various plans. These plans also involve a year-long subscription to Airtel Xstream Premium, Wynk Music, and access to online courses from Upskill with Shaw Academy. The additional benefits include 'Free Hello tunes' with unlimited changes and an Rs. 100 cashback on FASTag. Along with all the advantages mentioned above, you get a one-year subscription to the Disney+ Hotstar VIP plans. Also, you can always use Airtel Recharge Coupons to get more out of your recharge plans.

Best Vi Prepaid Plans (Vodafone idea)

Vi (Vodafone idea) offers a similar annual prepaid plan to Airtel with unlimited calls, 2GB data, and 100 SMS per day. They have several plans to roll over the weekdays unused data to the weekend and be used off. Vi Prepaid Plan also has one-year access to ZEE5 Premium and Vi movies & TV. Most of the features remain the same as it might not be an ideal pick; still, another service provider can try if it suits your daily usage requirements.

Best Jio Prepaid Plans

Reliance Jio has yet again made off-net national voice calls free on its network. The company offers several annual plans with unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS per day, and 2GB data per day. Once you exhaust the daily data limit exhaustion, the speed declines to 64Kbps for browsing. The best thing is that you can use Jio Recharge promo codes to save some extra and even earn cashback.

Similar to Airtel, Jio offers a complimentary subscription to their apps in the prepaid plans. Jio also has three annual prepaid plans with an additional 10GB rollover data and a one-year subscription to Disney+ Hotstar and other features.

Last Word

Among all primary telecom mobile operators in India, Jio charges Rs 13.89 per day, which can reasonably be the highest annual prepaid mobile plans. Whereas Vi recently introduced Weekend Rollover benefit which you may find attractive at first, it is yet to be explored by users reflecting the recent network blackouts reported all over southern India.

Among all the Prepaid Plans we studied, Airtel annual prepaid plans are also reasonably priced with a minimum per day cost of Rs 6.57-. It is clear that Airtel provides the best of everything when it comes to telecom mobile operating service.

Never recharge 365 days plan. 84 days always good if you not satisfied with Provider than you have a option to port out . But if services gets poor than in 365 days plan you will be option left.

In my Area Airtel is best Network for speed
Then VI is also awesome in speed. & vi is giving 4gb/day in 699₹, so it is great option for me.

Jio is not giving more than 10kbps & indoor call quality is poor

Been using jio since day 1. In city usually I’m on wifi network sometimes data.. works ok. But at my village jio works best better than airtel.. Vodafone/idea are worst.

I dont have JIO , but for ethical reason , i dont recommend them even if they give the package for free..

I just did Annual Airtel recharge mainly because of DATA topup which will last only till pack validity date.

One can get around 10% or so discount on shorter recharges if 84 days in general. I believe that would work out to be cheaper.

I have been using airtel for last 8 years , consistently good network although their customer support is pathetic . The annual plan 1498 is a good one if you don’t require too much data , add Amazon prime offer of rs on recharge which makes it approx 116₹ / month

I got our caretaker/house help a Jio plan thinking they’ll have a competing annual plan such as the 1499 in Airtel, but NOPE. Now she has to get an annual plan for 2.4k when she could have easily made do with Airtel 1499 plan. Sucks.
