Metro Petroleum Card
Pros & Cons
What's not so good?
The Metro Fuel Card is a great option as a WEX Motorpass alternative because you still get to access the network when you need it (at additional costs – aka “Open loop”), but save on card fees. It’s ideal for drivers who typically use Metro petrol service stations (which often have cheaper pump prices), but also want the flexibility to use a fuel card at multiple brands. If your routes include Metro Petroleum stations and you want one of the cheaper fuel cards, the Metro Fuel Card is a good choice.
Metro currently has an introductory offer where the first 1,000 cards will receive 5c/l off fuel for the first 3 months. This is only available at branded Metro Petroleum service stations. The downside to the Metro Fuel Card is there are no ongoing fuel discounts after the promo period ends.
Another consideration is the Metro Fuel Card is also only available to ABN holders, so it’s certainly targeted at businesses rather than individuals.
With the Metro Fuel Card, you have the flexibility of choosing different purchasing options for your drivers or vehicles. Whether you allow some drivers to only purchase fuel and oil, or let them make shop purchases – it’s up to you. All cards must be PIN enabled.
Metro Fuel Card also gives you access to Velocity Transaction Controls, a real-time fraud protection tool that lets you set specific limits on exactly how and when cards are used. For example, you can define how many times a day a card can be used, or even how many litres can be pumped per month.
Where can I use my Metro Fuel Card?
With the Metro Fuel Card you can use your card at over 250 Metro sites nation-wide. You can use your Metro Fuel Card at over 5,800 WEX Motorpass sites including BP, Woolworths/Safeway, Shell, Coles Express, Ampol, Caltex, 7-Eleven, and Mobil (for an additional transaction fee of 0.50c per transaction).
