Four Reasons to Use a Fuel Card

If you work for a business with a large fleet of vehicles, chances are that you’ll be very familiar with how much fuel they can use. It takes a lot of fuel to maintain a group of cars, lorries or vans and the costs can quickly add up. If you’re using large amounts of fuel on a regular basis, then a fuel card is a smart solution, whether you use commercial fuel, lubricants or heating oil. If you want to know more about some of the many benefits of using a fuel card, see our handy guide below. 
Fuel discounts
One of the main appeals of using a fuel card is the discounts and savings available. Using a credit card can incur some extra fees or higher prices, but using a fuel card will generally mean fuel is sold at the cash price or less. Even if the discounts are small, they quickly add up if you’re buying large amounts of fuel on a regular basis. 
Theft protection
It can be risky to carry large amounts of cash around in a lorry or vehicle but using a fuel card removes the risk of money being stolen. It also adds an extra layer of protection as drivers will be required to use a special pin for more secure purchases. 
Control your expenses
Using a fuel card often allows companies to buy fuel at a wholesale cost and these prices are set at consistent rates across the UK. This allows a business to budget their costs more effectively and know in advance how much an amount of fuel will cost. 
Using a fuel card removes the need to always carry the right amount of cash or the right credit card, and it cuts down on the amount of admin and paperwork for your company. A fuel card also means that all payments can be processed through one account; meaning that you can have just one invoice for all transactions.
