What are Fuel Cards?
On average, a business with 5 vehicles can purchase around 15,000 litres of fuel a year. This expense, direct for petrol as well as indirect for tracking the transactions behind the purchase, are often immense. Fuel cards can help to reduce it by being used as a payment method at petrol stations.
Similar to credit cards, they are a cashless payment method that is not debited directly but after a certain period. After filling up a vehicle, your drivers will simply present the fuel card to the cashier. Every week, your fuel card company will send you an invoice listing all purchases made by your drivers. The amount due is automatically transferred in a single transaction using direct debit.
In general, there are two types of fuel cards. Using fixed price cards, you will be charged a petrol price that is set once a week and usually lies about 2-3 pence below the average pump price. Using a pump price card, you will be charged the price shown at the petrol station. Besides this major difference, fuel cards differ regarding network size, pricing, online services, and additional services like dedicated account managers and fleet management reports. Many fuel cards also offer additional services such as fuelling limits, price notifications, account management and reporting on your fuel expenses. All can aid your business in managing and optimising your fleet.
