Why should I get a fuel card?
Fuel cards allow drivers to save up to 10p per litre on their fuel costs and reduce admin time. They are perfect for any business looking to cut costs and improve productivity.
Fuel cards also offer a secure method for payments; you control what products drivers are purchasing, and they help to cut fuel fraud.
Furthermore, you’ll also never need to carry receipts again as you’ll receive HMRC compliant invoices that consolidate all transactions from the cards on your account.
How does a fuel card work?
Cardholders can fill up at any forecourt or filling station where their card is valid.
Each fuel card is linked directly to your customer account and has a unique card ID number. Every time a cardholder carries out a transaction, this data is logged and the purchase amount added to your invoice.
How do I choose between fuel cards?
The amount of choice you’re presented with may at first seem overwhelming, but don’t worry – choosing between fuel cards isn’t too difficult. Some key considerations you should make are:
Understanding your pricing requirements. We often differentiate by looking at price per litre.
Determining availability. You’ll want to ensure that the provider you choose has the right coverage to suit the routes of your fleet. Each of our providers have thousands of sites across the UK, so whatever your problem, we can help you find a solution.
Additional costs. We’ll help you identify which extra costs are associated with each type of fuel card, which could for example be a transaction fee at each station.
Rewards and benefits. Some providers offer rewards schemes to help you save even more money- good to watch out for.
