Pros & Cons
What's not so good?
The Shell Card by Viva Energy is great for those who only stick to Shell petrol stations and want simple to understand fee structure. With one of the largest networks, you can find a Shell-branded station everywhere across Australia so coverage isn’t a big issue even for larger fleets. The ability to earn flybuys points is attractive, but it’s limited to only Coles Express branded sites for non-fuel purchases like drinks and snacks – you don’t earn any flybuys points if all you’re doing is filling up on fuel. While they accept credit cards like Visa and Mastercard which can help extend the relatively short credit period of 7 to 28 days (depending on invoicing frequency), they don’t accept AMEX which normally has better rewards programs.
To get the most out of this card you should only use this card at Shell branded service stations or the participating Liberty petrol stations around the country. t’s also worth noting that the advertised price you see on petrol billboards can often reflect the prices after docket discounts. You can check average petrol prices near you on petrolspy.com.au.
Another benefit is you’ll be able to swipe your flybuys card when using the fuel card, meaning your employees who have their own flybuys point can reap the rewards as an added bonus.
Their card management portal is also quite simple and contains a library of tutorials on how to perform common actions from Downloading Invoices to Restricting Card Usage – you can view this on their YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClq-73_01GH1HRJQF0TRrqA/videos).
While their support staff were fantastic to deal with they’re only available during business hours and it’s quite noticeable they’re located overseas from the delay and line quality.
They will also try and help negotiate a deal beyond the initial promotional period, but the deal may not be the same or as good as the initial 6c/l offer.
