Premium Time was introduced on November 5, 2001, three days after Edron was introduced in the 6.4 update. If you enjoy the game but feel that you want to play it fully you could pay for premium for your account. This is paid with real life money (not in-game Tibia gold) to CipSoft and will give you many great benefits. Premium time is ordered using Element5's online payment system, Tibia's Bank Transfer and via Official Resellers.
There are a few payment methods available if you want to buy Premium Time.
- Credit Card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB and Diners Club)
- Wire/Bank Transfer
- Cheque (sent via postal mail)
- iDeal (for Dutch people)
- Official Resellers (serving various countries)
There are a lot of benefits having premium time than having a normal Free Account. These are:
- Access to Premium Zones (Premium part of Rookgaard, Edron and Cormaya, Darama, the Shattered Isles, the Pits of Inferno, Hrodmir, Yalahar, Zao, Quirefang, Roshamuul, Oramond, and the deeper parts of Gnomegate).

Expiration of Premium Time
When the Premium Time is over, and the holder doesn't renew, he or she will become a Free Account player again, and all the premium benefits will be either lost or suspended.
It will be no longer possible to travel by boats, and if the player was at a premium area at the time the Premium Time was running out he or she will be automatically logged in at the temple of Thais if the player is a citizen of a premium city (or Thais), or in the hometown temple if the player is a citizen of another city. If the player is on Rookgaards premium area he or she will be teleported to the temple and the player will not be able to return.
If the player was either leader or vice-leader of a guild, he or she will still hold the position and its features (but for the guildhall), however the guild will enter in a disbanding process if it has less than five premium players in the vice-leadership and leadership together.
The houses and guildhall, if any, will be lost at the next server save after the Premium Time expires. But they still can be traded with other players before they are lost, the transfer always happens before the house or guildhall is lost. Please note, however, that only guild leaders with Premium Time can rent a guildhall, therefore it will be needed to pass the leadership to some premium player if the guild does not want to lose the guildhall (it will be transfered automatically when the leadership is passed).
If a house or a guildhall is lost, all the portable items (like equipments) inside will be sent to the owner's depot of the city that the building is registered (even if it is a premium city). So it is advised that if the player owns a house in a premium area and it will be lost, the owner should parcel his or her items to a free area's depot. The non-portable items (like most of the furnitures) will be lost for good.
The promotions, the premium spells, the outfits and the addons which the player got will be suspended once the premium runs out, but the player will get all of them back if he or she gets another Premium Time.
If the VIP list has exceeded its Free Account limit (20 entries), no entries will be lost. However it will not be possible to add new VIPs to the list until it is deleted enough entries to make it get below the limit.
All the items in all the depots will stay where they are, even if they are in a premium city. So it is advised, if the player is not going to not renew his or her premium, to parcel all the items on these areas to a free city's depot, otherwise these items will be inaccessible until a new Premium Time is bought. If some depot had more than the Free Account limit (1000 items), no item will be lost but it will not be possible to add new items to this depot until it gets below this limit.
Note that some of your premium questing efforts are still beneficial to you while free account. If you have been premium at least once and finished The Travelling Trader Quest and The Thieves Guild Quest during that time, you will still be able to trade with Rashid and Black Bert as a free account player. You will also keep access to the Royal Mailboxes you might have unlocked during The Postman Missions Quest.
