How does it work?

Following your call to us, we will arrange to have your Pay As You Go installed and provide you with some start credit. You can pay this back, along with any arrears at a later date. You'll also receive a Gas Card which you can take to one of hundreds of Payzone outlets across the country. Simply top-up with your chosen amount (minimum €10, maximum €250). Once you slot your Gas Card into the Meter, your credit amount will be displayed on the Meter screen.

What happens if my credit is low and I can't get to a Payzone Outlet?

We understand that there may be situations when you can't get to a Payzone outlet. From 1 December 2018 when you top-up, we have €10 of emergency credit on your Meter, until you can top-up again. The next time you top-up, we simply take it off that credit.

It's best to only use emergency credit when you really need it as you will need to pay it all back before you can use it again.

If you use all your emergency credit, you will need to top up by at least €20 to use it again.
