Fuel cards with low fees
There will always be a cost to run fuel cards, but that doesn't mean you can't keep the operating fees low!
If you're looking for a simple solution to fix the headache of paper receipts, the most sensible option will be choosing a card that's tied to one station, but you can also enjoy locked in rates if you're a larger fleet with more card perks.
Q&As from customers
What are the best fuel cards to keep the fees low?
Fuel cards which are tied to only one brand will have a lower operating cost. For example, BP have a low card cost of $2.20/m per card (based on 3 or more cards) but you can only use them at BP stations.
With that said, it’s worth shopping around if you run a number of vehicles and have high fuel usage – most fuel card providers will try and win your business by securing you a better than advertised rate, however be diligent in asking the right questions such as:
- How long the rate lasts for (if they’re quoting a promotional period)
- If the pump discounts (if any) is applicable to all fuel brands or just one
- Whether there are any transaction fees which could offset any discounts
Also consider that fuel companies also use promotional offerings to lock you into the system – while there may not be a contract per say, the effort in moving from one fuel card to another for a larger fleet can be a pain.
