Whether you’re a small business or a sole-trader, fuel cards can be highly beneficial if you are travelling across the UK or Ireland. But with so much choice, how are you sure which card is right for you? It is most certainly not a one size fits all approach, which is why at Fuelcards.com we take time to find you the best solution. Here are a few factors that determine which fuel card is right for you and your business.
If your business is only starting out, the chances are your fleet isn’t overly big. That’s not to say you don’t need a fuel card, however we offer different cards depending on what vehicle your salespeople are driving. For example, if you drive a HGV, you will be able to use your fuel card at stations that are lorry friendly e.g., higher canopies.
When choosing a fuel card, it’s important to understand how often you will use it and therefore, the amount you will be spending on fuel. At Fuelcards.com we offer a fixed weekly price to purchase fuel, therefore this is normally cheaper than standard pump prices. This cost-effective option might be the one for you if you are purchasing a consistent amount of fuel as it will save you money in the long run.
It’s important to note where your journeys will cover. For example, are you operating on a national or regional scale? This is important as you will want to have access to most stations along your route. This isn’t an issue with Fuelcards.com as we offer access to over 3000 stations nationwide and over 1,450 stations North and South of Ireland. We offer different cards whether you’re operating in Ireland or the UK. And we even have a Fuel card site locator mobile app so you can plan your stops at the touch of a button!
Type of fuel
Do your vehicles operate on petrol or diesel, or perhaps you use both within your fleet? Some operators may offer different cards depending on your fuel type so make sure you get the best solution. With Fuelcards.com you will have access to major brand networks and supermarket sites no matter what fuel you are using.
Type of business
Whether you are running a company or are self-employed, there are fuel cards tailored for both. At Fuelcards.com, we offer Sole Trader fuel cards as well as Company fuel cards, so we cater for everyone!
