What is a Fuel Card?
A Fuel Card is very similar to a credit card without the interest charges; each fuel card has a set network of sites around the Ireland, UK or Europe at which your fuel card can be used.
Our Fuel Cards can be used on branded networks in such as Circle K, Applegreen, Emo Oil Top Oil, Shell, Texaco and Maxol along with Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets. We also provide fuel cards that can be used in 22 European countries at all major branded filling stations.

What is the approval criteria for a Fuel Card?
We use an approved credit agency to undertake credit checks. We never refuse any customer an account with Fuelwise and are willing to tailor our terms and credit limits to match your needs. If you are a limited company the credit checks are based on account information filed at Companies House (You can supply us with recent management or year-end accounts to support your application). For non-limited companies or Sole Traders, the credit check is run on the individual.
Is there a contract or minimum use with a Fuel Card?
We do not ask you to sign a contract and you are under no obligation to use the Fuel Card. Fuelwise will provide you with advanced notice of the price you will pay for your fuel via text or email allowing you to make an informed decision on the best interests of your business.
Will Fuelwise always be cheaper than pump prices?
With a Fuelwise Fuel Card you will get a competitive price at all filling stations available on our network no matter what part of the country you are travelling in.
There are many market factors that influence our supply price and your price reflects the oil market movement by reacting quicker to price moves than forecourt prices. We cannot guarantee to be cheaper than every filling station, however if the oil market drops, we pass on these savings immediately. We also supply you with a price update so you will always know what price you are paying allowing you to make an informed decision in the best interests of your company putting you firmly in control of your costs.
