Turkcell top-up

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help?
I am PAYG with Turkcell and have always topped up by my HSBC online banking.
My problem is since the change to HSBC internet banking a couple of weeks ago, there is no longer an option to select the "Standart Paket". This was just a straight top up with no internet (I don't need it on the phone).
Now with HSBC there is only "Avantaj Paket" which seems to be inclusive of minutes & data and I'm guessing is only valid for 1 month whereas the Standart Paket ran until the money ran out.
I don't mind paying extra for minutes & data while I'm here in Turkey but I'm only here for 3 months per year so now I think I'm going to have a problem keeping the sim "alive" as I used to top up once via the bank 4-6 months later while I was in UK & and send the odd text.
Now it would seem with HSBC I will have to top up with this Avantaj Paket every month even though I'm not here using it?
Does anyone know if I can pay Turkcell directly online for a standard top-up or has this option been completely withdrawn now or any other way to get around this?
Thanks for any help, sorry it's long and drawn out.
