The Benefits of a Fuel Card

Five Benefits of Using Fuel Cards Over Traditional Payment Forms

This short video from Fuelmate explains the benefits of fuel cards compared to other forms of payment, answering one of the most common questions we are asked – ‘should I get a fuel card?’ It also explains the benefits of different fuel cards from BP, Shell, UK Fuels, Keyfuels and Texaco.

Five Advantages of Using Fuel Cards

1. Monitor Fuel Use Within Your Business

A fuel card allows you to collect detailed data about your fleet’s fuel usage. Fuelmate can provide this information through a series of reports, making managing the fuel efficiency of your business simple.

2. No Need For Cash

Fuel cards are a cashless payment method and, as such, are more secure for both your drivers and your business.

3. Interest-free Fuel Purchases

Fuel cards offer businesses interest-free credit on their fuel purchases. We will always offer you the best credit terms we can, based on your business's circumstances.

4. Fuel Card Use Can Be Controlled

Most Fuelmate fuel cards give you the option to specify exactly what can and cannot be bought with them. This includes both fuel type (petrol or diesel), through to shop-based items such as newspapers and drinks.

5. Reduces Time Spent On Administration

Adopting a fuel card can drastically reduce the time spent on administrative tasks, because, instead of having to collect receipts, sort expense forms, or chase employees for business mileage, Fuelmate sends you a single, itemised and VAT-approved invoice.
