Written by: Fuel Card Services, Last updated:27th February 2023

BP’s reciprocal fuel card acceptance agreement with Esso has now expanded to include Esso Tesco alliance sites. From August, BP Fuelcard customers can fill up at all Esso Tesco Alliance stations displaying the new BP acceptance logo. The expansion means BP PLUS Fuel Cards are now accepted at more than 3,600 sites, including Texaco, Esso and GULF*.

Jo McDonnell, UK Fleet Sales Manager, BP Fuel Cards, said: “At BP, we are committed to expanding our offer to support our fleet customers. This collaboration with the Esso Tesco Alliance sites completes our cross acceptance partnership with Esso and enables us to provide a fantastic network for BP PLUS fleet customers, giving drivers even more choice and availability when travelling throughout the UK.”

With a total network of more than 3,600 sites, BP will be able to offer fleet operators greater cost control, not only through an extensive network but also through competitive pricing, enhanced security and access to fleet administration and management information.

The BP branded network includes 1,220 sites, with 900 sites on UK A roads, 700 24-hour sites and more than 70 sites at motorway service stations. With the largest branded motorway network and sites positioned on key A roads and transport routes, the BP network focusses on positioning sites where fleets need them the most, helping to reduce wasted mileage.

BP also has more than 600 bunker sites which feature high-speed pumps, wide lanes and extra high canopies. Most are on motorways and ‘A’ roads, cutting the need for detours.

The addition of the extra sites via the Esso cross acceptance partnership provides a comprehensive network for fleets across the UK – from the north of Scotland to Wales and throughout England.
