In order to access the "Keyword Planner" you need to have a Active Adwords Account. In order to have an active adwords account you need to Add the Billing information. You will not be charged until your campaigns are active and there are actual "clicks" on your ads.

So add your billing information and then proceed., Again you are only charged when your Ad's are active and "Clicked".. Adwords is a Pay per Click Platform

The Keyword Planner is intended for Advertisers of the platform and not a "free resource" for everyone. Hence you need to activate your account by adding your Billing Information.
