Before I go on with the MTN international bundle code, let’s see what the International Destinations Bundle is all about.

MTN International Destinations Bundle

IDB Bundle is a bundle that offers you (both MTN Prepaid and ePostpaid customers’) generous International Voice minutes at a discounted price.

Like I said earlier, there are three types of International Destinations Bundles available and they are as follows:

  1. IDB 300
  2. IDB 500
  3. IDB 1,500

Before you go ahead to buy any of the bundles, let me explain what you stand to get, i.e. the International voice minutes MTN will give you for your international calls:

  1. IDB 300 MTN gives you 20 International minutes call
  2. IDB 500 MTN gives you 40 International minutes call
  3. IDB 1,500 MTN gives you 150 International minutes call

With the bundle minutes, you will not be able to make national calls or call other international destinations not listed in the eligible international destinations I listed above.

If you want, you can purchase the same bundle multiple times as well as purchase different bundles at the same time.

And if you exhaust the voice minutes in your current bundle before your bundle expires, you can re-purchase that same bundle again after exhausting the minutes and you can as well buy another bundle type.

Take, for instance, if you bought the IDB500 plan and exhaust the minutes, you will be able to buy another IDB500 bundle or buy the IDB300 or the IDB1500.

Even if you have not exhausted the minutes in your current bundle, you are allowed to purchase another one.

Let’s now see what makes this the cheapest MTN tariff plan for international calls.

That’s how to make cheap international calls on MTN. Easy, right?

But hold up, wait a minute…there are some things I still need to tell you.

If you want to stop your bundle from renewing automatically, follow the codes below for cancellation but do it before the time of expiry.



  1. IDB300, text NoIDB300 to 131
  2. IDB500 text NoIDB500 to 131
  3. IDB1500, text NoIDB1500 to 131

If you’ve cancelled the auto-renewal, you can still buy the International Destinations Bundle again by sending the subscription code of that bundle type to 131.
