What is a Fuel Card?

A fuel card is an alternative method of payment for drivers that enables owners or managers to track spend, limit usage and help improve the management of your vehicles.

We have been providing fuel cards and telematics solutions to thousands of companies across the UK and Ireland for over 30 years. The Fuelwise fuel card is accepted at over 4,600 sites across Ireland and the UK, including leading brands such as Circle K, Maxol, Texaco, Top, Esso and motorway Applegreen sites, many which are HGV friendly and operate 24-hour opening hours.

3 features of the Fuelwise

With a Fuelwise Fuel Card you can limit the products your drivers can purchase and also limit the amount they spend on a daily or weekly basis. This provides peace of mind that your money is being used appropriately.

2. Reduce Costs

Fuel cards can help to reduce your companies fuel costs due to the largest network of sites they can be used at. Fuelwise fuel cards are accepted at over 4,600 sites across the UK and Ireland at all major brands and large supermarket chains. Due to having a lot more sites than other fuel card suppliers, with Fuelwise you can avoid driving miles to a fuel station as you will always have one close by.

This is also helpful to calculate your weekly, monthly or yearly fuel spend and identify high spenders.

“Fuelwise is very customer focused and were able to provide what I needed for this project where others couldn’t. The e- Route app helps our engineers find Core sites instead of Non-Core sites which helps with efficiencies and cost savings. Velocity is well managed, and I can create plenty of reports and my Account Manager is always on hand to help. With GPS Tracking built into Velocity I can view distance travelled, speed etc. and driver contact details without having to open another system.”
