There is no official conversion rate between credits and tokens in ''Asphalt 8: Airborne''. It is thus unknown what the relationship between tokens and credits are. However, it can be estimated that a token is worth 138 credits on average. This estimate is extremely rough as the amount of in-game tokens received for an equivalent value of credits depends largely on what you purchased.

In general, the lower the credit/token ratio of the car price is, the more economical it would be to purchase the car with credit instead of token, and vise versa. However, due to the elusiveness and relatively high availability of the token to most player, it is usually a better choice to purchase item with credit and save the tokens for other use.

Credits are the most commonly used currency in the Asphalt series.

Asphalt 8: Airborne

Credits reward

The only currency in the game until the inclusion of Tokens with the Winter update, Credits are a fundamental element of Asphalt 8, being the only way to purchase in-game objects without having to spend real money. Credits can be won by finishing races, winning Time-Limited Events, completing vehicle collections or purchasing credit packs. Credits earned at the end of races can also be increased by the Double Credits booster, completing Bonus Star Requirements and the Daily Bonus multiplier.

Credit-bought items

  • A majority of the vehicles in the game are purchasable with credits. As of the Elite Cars Update, several have the option of paying with either currency.
  • The Decals Update also introduced customizable decals you can buy for cars (hence the name), many of which can be purchased with credits.
  • The Super Racer Kit Box is the only Pro Box that is purchasable with credits.

Credit packs

Credit Packs

Credit packs are an in-app purchase that provides the player a set amount of credits in exchange for real money. While the price for a pack increases for a bigger payout, the larger packs are overall of more value as the player gains a larger amount for a reduced money → credits cost ratio. With the Rio Update, each credit pack will also award the player with VIP points for the VIP system. [1]

Transferability with Tokens

There is no official conversion rate between credits and tokens in Asphalt 8: Airborne. It is thus unknown what the relationship between tokens and credits are. However, it can be estimated that a token is worth 138 credits on average. This estimate is extremely rough as the amount of in-game tokens received for an equivalent value of credits depends largely on what you purchased.

In general, the lower the credit/token ratio of the car price is, the more economical it would be to purchase the car with credit instead of token, and vise versa. However, due to the elusiveness and relatively high availability of the token to most player, it is usually a better choice to purchase item with credit and save the tokens for other use.

Obtaining Credits

While every race in the game has a credits payout, the fastest method of earning credits is with Season 9 or Car Mastery race #15 events, preferably on short tracks such as San Diego Harbor, Alps & Dubai. Listed below are the top 10 cars to use in terms of event profitability.[2]

# Model Location Race type Base payout Race duration
1 McLaren 675LT Dubai (Rev.) Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 6,085 ~47 seconds
2 McLaren F1 XP-5 Dubai (Rev.) Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 5,805 ~46 seconds
3 Bentley EXP10 Speed 6 Alps (Rev.) Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 6,060 ~50 seconds
4 W Motors Lykan HyperSport Dubai Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 5,950 ~49 seconds
5 SSC Tuatara The London Eye Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 5,975 ~50 seconds
6 BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage San Diego Harbor Car Mastery #15, Flawless A8 credits small 5,795 ~52 seconds
7 Koenigsegg Agera R Alps (Rev.) Car Mastery #15, Unplugged A8 credits small 5,975 ~54 seconds
8 RUF CTR 3 San Diego Harbor Car Mastery #15, Flawless A8 credits small 5,895 ~55 seconds
9 Lamborghini Veneno Alps Car Mastery #15, Flawless A8 credits small 5,845 ~55 seconds
10 Sbarro Alcador San Diego Harbor Car Mastery #15, Flawless A8 credits small 5,790 ~55 seconds

While racing with boosters (Nitro Starter & Tuning Kit) will reduce the race duration, it is more detrimental than going unboosted as the additional cost for 1 hour of usage will outweigh the increased profit for an overall loss in credit accumulation.[3]

As previously mentioned, completing certain collections in the game will award the player with a credit reward. Listed below are all of the collections with a credit reward.
