What Are Fuel Cards?

A fuel card is a method of payment used by businesses to purchase fuel for their vehicles. Rather than providing employees with cash or credit cards, businesses can give each employee a fuel card that can only be used to purchase fuel.

The Fuelwise Fuel Card can be used at over 5,750 fuel stations throughout the UK and Ireland, making it the largest independent fuel card network.

How Do Fuel Cards Work?

Fuel Cards are similar to credit and debit cards, with the main difference being that purchases are strictly limited to fuel related products. This reduces the risk of fraud and makes it easier to track fuel spend. After filling up, businesses then receive an invoice inline with their payment terms, with payment collected at a later date.

Fuel Card Benefits For Employees

There are many benefits that your employees can experience after you switch to fuel cards. Let’s take a look at them below:

  • Hassle free payment
  • No more collecting receipts
  • Gain loyalty points at supermarkets
  • Access to thousands of fuel stations nationwide
  • Don’t need to provide expense claims or use their own money

How To Use A Fuel Card?

The process of using a fuel card works very similar to using a credit or debit card. After filling up your vehicle, enter the store and provide the cashier with your fuel card. They will ask you to enter your Mileage and Registration which is optional, before completing the transaction by entering your four digit PIN.
