Frequently Asked Questions
A fuel card is used as a payment card for petrol, diesel, and other fuels at service stations.
Instead of using cash or a company credit card, fuel cards are a much safer, more convenient option for you and your staff to make payments. They give you greater control of your company expenses, make monitoring fuel expenditure easier and can save you money on your fuel.
There are different types of cards available, depending on your fleet size, area of operation and your average fuel spend.
Fuel cards work like company credit cards for your transport costs. They let your drivers pay for your diesel, petrol and other vehicle-related purchases on credit.
Unlike normal credit cards, many fuel card providers set weekly, fortnightly or longer payment periods. The time period is sometimes based on your company’s credit rating.
Buying your fuel now and paying for it at a later date can help with your cash flow management. Most card providers ask you to set up a direct debit so that you never forget to meet your payment date.
If you do not have a good credit rating, a few fuel card providers may offer a pre-payment agreement. Your company pays for week’s fuel ahead of time, and your drivers then draw from this pool of money each time they buy fuel.
You can use fuel cards at service stations, garages and supermarkets throughout the UK and across Europe.
They’re accepted at local chains of petrol stations, national chains on motorways and at many European tolls.
You can use your fuel card at the pumps of the most popular petrol station brands close to home, as well as many smaller stations on the continent — including countries like France, Belgium, Italy and Germany.
Picking the right fuel card is easy with the help of iCompario. It hinges on six questions.
- How big is your fleet?
- What types of vehicles do you have?
- Where do they work – locally, or around the country?
- Do you use fuel from any company, or only high tech diesel from one of the leading companies?
- How much diesel or petrol do you usually buy each month?
- Does your company have any specific extra needs from a fuel card?
iCompario makes this easy with our comparison tool. Enter your details and we interrogate our database, which holds the information on 95% of all the fuel cards in the UK. We use this to whittle down a shortlist of the most suitable fuel cards for you.
The result is that you don’t simply choose the right card from the available options. You choose the best one for your business, based on your unique needs.
Fuel cards have two main tariffs that cover how you pay for your diesel and petrol: pump prices and fixed prices.
Pump price is as simple as it sounds. You simply fill up your tank and pay with your fuel card the amount displayed on the pump, as you normally would.
Some cards offer a variation on this, by letting you nominate certain stations where you get a specific discount off the pump price. These discounts are usually pennies, but they add up over time.
Weekly price or Commercial price is a fixed nationwide price, which is set weekly, and is based on the wholesale fuel prices.
Each of these two options has its pros and cons.
The upside of paying at the pump is that prices can reduce day by day. The downside is prices can increase day by day.
The good thing about paying a fixed price is that you can plan your fuel costs in advance and manage your costs. This bad thing is that you might pay more than the market value at certain times of the month.
