Whether you are a sole trader with one vehicle or a business with a small fleet, there are many benefits to choosing a small business fuel card. Learn how your business can benefit with a fuel card by reduced admin, more control of expenses and reduced costs.

Cheaper Fuel

Whether you have a small or large fleet, or do a lot of mileage, you can benefit from reduced fuel costs which have a direct impact on your margin. With access to thousands of sites your drivers will no longer have to deviate to other fuel stations that are miles away. You also benefit by receiving fuel prices that are more competitive than pumps.

Fuelwise is completely free to join meaning you don’t need to worry about any additional costs when using Fuelwise Fuel Cards.

Less Admin

A fuel card helps to reduce fleet management admin which is important when time is precious. You will no longer have to collect receipts to calculate fuel expenditure as you will receive a weekly invoice. This invoice will break down transactions for every fuel card and is ready for VAT reclaim immediately. This will help to save your business time and money, which can be used more efficiently in other areas of your business.

More Control

Essential to any small business is keeping expenditure under control. A small business fuel card can help to provide you with more control over costs in a number of ways. You can limit the products your drivers can purchase with their fuel card. Limits can also be placed on the cards, either by the amount of litres available to purchase or the number of transactions that can take place. This helps to give control back to the business owner, all of which are not available when using cash or credit cards.

Site Locator

With thousands of sites there is a lot of choice when it comes to using your fuel card. As time is precious you don’t want your drivers wasting time looking for a fuel station. We provide you with an online site locator and mobile app that makes searching for any of our 5,250 plus sites extremely easy.

We also have a mobile app that your drivers can download to their phones, helping them to find fuel stations as and when they need them.

Fleet Management System

Having access to fleet data at the touch of a button is essential. With Velocity Fleet this is possible. It is an online account management system that we provide for free. It enables you to manage your fuel cards, access invoices and create bespoke transaction reports. Included with Velocity is Vehicle Checks, a free vehicle check and due dates system.
