How Do Fuel Cards Work?

Fuel Cards enable drivers and company staff to fill up at fuel stations accepted on the fuel card network. Rather than using cash or credit/debit cards, the employee presents their fuel card to the shopkeeper. The company will then be billed for the transaction at a later date.

Who Can Use A Fuel Card?

Fuel cards are designed for businesses that have their own vehicles, from the smallest to the largest businesses. Using a fuel card is an alternative to providing employees with cash or credit/debit cards, meaning they are more secure.
