Per second billing applies after the first minute of the call, so that the customers only pay for what they actually use. Oskar does not charge any activation fee and for the 800 CZK and 1500 CZK voucher offers 100 and 300 CZK bonus respectively.

|Oskarta 800||800||100||9 months|
|Oskarta 1500||1500||300||12 months|
Oskar also offers the protection and anonymity of information about customers' accounts through an access code selected by the customer. After each call, the display shows the charge and the account balance. Information about account usage is available through the Internet, as well.
It is very easy to start making phone calls with Oskarta. Customers only need to call the toll-free OskarKontakt at 0800 177 117 and order the Starter Kit containing the pre-activated phone number. The cost of the Starter Kit, which includes the Oskarta (SIM card) and a voucher worth 400 CZK is 400 CZK. After receipt of the package, the customer needs to insert the Oskarta into their mobile phone, charge it for the first time using the voucher enclosed as to be able to make their first call. The handset itself is not a part of the Starter Kit, since it needs to be ordered separately.
"Oskarta is no doubt the easiest and the most affordable way to making mobile phone calls in the Czech Republic," Michal Kačena, Oskar's spokesperson, comments on the new product.
As from Wednesday, Oskarta vouchers are available in all Oskar corporate stores and they will be soon available at other locations, such as Česká pošta locations, as well. The 800 CZK and 1500 CZK vouchers can be ordered directly at OskarKontakt at 0800 177 117, too.
