The deal will allow customers registered on Airtel Money to deposit cash, withdraw cash and pay for utility bills at Total petrol stations.
“This partnership will enable our customers to pay for their fuel in a fast, safe and convenient way,” said Shivan Bhargava, managing director of Airtel Kenya.
“We are delighted to be able to offer Airtel customers access to this service through this partnership with Total and we look forward to offer this service to all our customers using Total outlets throughout the country.”
Bhargava said customers will access their services using a unique paybill business name.
The service is readily available at Total outlets in Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nakuru and Eldoret.
According to Alexis Vovk, managing director of Total Kenya, the company is working hard to come up with more innovation for effective service delivery.
“We recognise that the majority of our customers lead busy lives and need faster and more convenient ways of dealing with fuel purchases, buying goods, drawing cash and paying bills. The Airtel Money facility at Total service stations will be a significant benefit for both Total and Airtel Money customers,” said Vovk.
Airtel Money currently has more than 9,500 agents countrywide, with the number expected to grow by more than 15,000 by the end of the year.
