Our review

Our review of the Fleet Card Orange
Reviewed by Mark Adams
Last update 19 May 2020

The Fleet Card Orange sits at the premium end of fuel cards suited to businesses that don’t want to be restricted to using one fuel station, and it’s packed full of features. The card has been designed with user flexibility and convenience in mind with the ability to access over 90% of fuel stations Australia wide and over 6,000 non-fuel merchants, many of which have their own exclusive discounts on.

What this means for a driver / employee is assurance that everything is taken care of while they’re on the road – from fuel and oil to repairs. From a management perspective, these benefits can be monitored, controlled and restricted at a card level. As everything is charged to the one card, it also means countless admin time saved.

Like its competitor WEX, Fleet Card have had its share of criticisms from past customers which stem from promotional offerings that make it seem like less money will be spent overall through direct fuel discounts, which sadly isn’t the case for a premium offering. While they have been more upfront on fees and changing their messaging, we’d still like to see a more up to date fee schedule that has clarity around transaction pricing (if any).

Note:

While pump discounts and $0 transaction fees last for 6 – 12 months (depending on which promo you choose), the pump discounts you’ll receive – if any – after that period has ended is dependent on your business and your Fleet Card Account Manager. Transaction fees likely apply once the promo period ends, but according to Fleet Card this fee will be dependent on your business and its expenditure throughout the promo period. Monthly card fees may also increase after the promo period ends. Essentially, transaction fees, pump discounts and monthly card fees are subject to change after the promo period ends. Fleet Card says it informs customers 30 days prior to any changes being made.

Fleet Card Orange Fees & Savings

What does the Fleet Card Orange cost? There are no account management or joining fees, and how much you pay per month will depend on the promotional offer best suited to your business and how many cards you need. For example, you may be paying 0.99c per card per month (excluding GST) and saving 3c/l at Shell and Coles Express, and 2c/l everywhere else for 6 months. Or, you may be paying $1.99 per card per month and saving 4c/l at Shell and Coles and 1c/l everywhere else. There is also a 12 month offer of $2.99 per card per month saving 5c/l at Shell and Coles Express and 1c/l everywhere else. There are 3 other packages to choose from, which will be dependent on your business’s individual circumstances.

Following the end of your promo period, it is unclear how much you’ll pay per month per card and if transaction fees apply, but current Fleet Card customers suggest fees do go up following the end of the promotional period. You should receive any changes to your account fees 30 days prior to changes being made. If you’re concerned about increasing fees, you can speak to your dedicated Fleet Card Account Manager who might be able to negotiate a better deal.

Other fees include:  

Late payment: $60 plus a % of your balance
Dishonour fee: $30
Interest: 51 days interest free, thereafter if you fail to pay your balance in full, a 0.07% interest rate applies.
Over limit fee: If you go over your set card limit, there is an admin fee as well as 10% of the balance over the limit.
Paper statements: $10 per document (free via email)
Replacement card fee: $15 per card
Processing fees: A credit card processing fee of 1.15% for Visa, 1.21% for Mastercard and 2.5% for American Express.
