Access to discounted and low cost fuel
Fuel cards can help you to stay in control of your fuel spend and keep a tight rein on your company’s finances. There are two main pricing options with fuel cards- weekly fixed rate and pump related price.
Some of the best pump related fuel card providers also offer access to discounted fuel at sites throughout the UK. Both offer benefits for companies, and it depends on your fleets needs as to which one is best for you.
Weekly fixed priced cards give you control of knowing what your fuel spend will cost each week. With these cards your fuel price is determined by the diesel wholesale price and is fixed for the week. No matter how much the pump price may change throughout the week, your price won’t change across the fuel cards specified network. Learn further insights with our fuel cost calculator tool here.
Some fuel cards in the market have been tailored especially to provide your drivers with access to low cost fuel via supermarket sites, only. This is useful if your drivers spend a lot of time driving around urban areas and will never be far from a supermarket fuel site.
By only having access to low cost fuel sites, you can be rest assured that you’re in control of your company’s fuel spend as you know exactly what restrictions these fuel cards bring your drivers.
At typically 3-5p per litre cheaper than the national average, supermarket fuel could provide a fleet of 40 vehicles that achieve 40mpg and each do 20,000 miles a year a saving of more than £3,500 a year – that’s if you were to buy fuel at 4p per litre cheaper than the national average.
