The monthly Whim subscription is valid until further notice and we will automatically renew it (including your mobility points) each month if you do not make changes to it. However, if you wish, you can choose to change, upgrade or even cancel your subscription before the start of your next billing month.

You will find more detailed information about your subscription in My Plan on the profile page of your Whim app.

What methods of payments are accepted?
Currently, you will need a credit or debit card, but you will be able to purchase pre-paid vouchers or add funds via bank transfer or services like PayPal in the future.
