Fuel card benefits for small businesses
Even if your business has just one vehicle, we believe it should benefit from the savings and powerful account management that companies with larger fleets enjoy. That’s why we offer a range of fuel cards for small businesses that can reduce your overheads and save you time, leaving you to concentrate on more important things.
Save money at the pump
Choose a fixed weekly price fuel card and every litre of fuel you buy on that card will be charged at a fixed price throughout that week. This means you can benefit from competitive pricing, manage your finances with no fluctuations and stabilise your overall fuel cost.
Alternatively, you could choose a pump price fuel card and be charged the price at the pump every time you refuel. This type of card makes everything simple and transparent and is widely accepted for diesel and unleaded petrol purchases across the UK – a perfect combination if your main priority is driver convenience.
No minimum spend
Our cards don’t have any minimum spends. So if you only have one vehicle for your business, we can still help you find a fuel card that’s right for you.
No nasty interest charges
If you’re currently using a credit card to pay for your company’s fuel, you may be incurring some hefty interest charges on your purchases. With a fuel card, you can say goodbye to these and save some vital money for your small business.
Pay quickly and securely
With our fuel cards, you can pay quickly and safely by using either chip and PIN, swipe and PIN, or swipe and signature.
Fewer hours spent on admin
Need to keep hold of receipts every time you pay for fuel? Go with a fuel card and this burden is forgotten forever. Instead of having to deal with tonnes of paperwork, you receive a single invoice that provides a clear breakdown of your fuel purchases. Payment for this invoice is then automatically taken by direct debit.
Dedicated account manager
You can always rely on your dedicated account manager to help you make the most of your fuel card and answer your questions.
Improve fleet and fuel management
Our online account management system provides a wealth of data on your fuel consumption, drivers and vehicles. This is an excellent way to help you identify ways you can improve your fuel efficiency.
Streamlined tax processes
The invoices you receive from The Right Fuelcard Company meet all of HMRC’s strict standards. They’re also presented in a way that makes processing your VAT much easier. Another time saver we’re sure you’ll appreciate.

Fuel card benefits for medium-sized companies
We’re pretty sure that if you’re the owner of a medium-sized business, you know too well that day-to-day operational issues can easily get in the way of actually managing your company. The good news is that as well as reducing your fuel costs, a fuel card delivers many extra benefits, such as reduced admin, better security and powerful tools that can improve fuel efficiency.
Reduce your fuel costs
Choose a fixed weekly price card and every litre of fuel you buy on that card will be charged at a fixed price throughout the week. This means you’ll enjoy competitive pricing, be able to manage your finances with no fluctuations, and be in total control of your overall fuel cost.
Alternatively, you could choose a pump price fuel card. This means you’ll be charged the price at the pump every time you buy fuel. This type of card makes everything transparent and is widely accepted for petrol and diesel across the UK. That could be a winning combination for you if you want convenience and simplicity.
Extensive network coverage
We offer medium-sized businesses a wealth of fuel cards to choose from that offer access to the forecourts of thousands of supermarket and major fuel suppliers. This means your needs are covered if your fleet simply travels in your region or does many long-distance trips around the UK.
Fuel fraud reduced
What’s particularly great about a fuel card is that it makes fuel fraud harder to commit. That’s because a fuel card offers many security features. These include PIN security and the name of a driver or vehicle registration embossed on a card, as well as the fact that you can monitor every one of your fuel transactions using our account management system.
You specify purchases
With a fuel card, you can choose exactly what a driver can purchase. This could be only fuel, or you may allow them to buy additional extras such as car washes, glass repair or other vehicle-related products. As a result, drivers can never make purchases on their card that your company hasn’t approved.
No credit card interest fees
If you have a large number of employees who use company credit cards to pay for fuel, you might be having to pay a fair chunk of interest to your credit card company every month. Assign fuel cards to all your drivers and this unnecessary fee will be gone forever.
Reduced admin costs and time
It may take your accounts team a long time to process receipts for fuel purchases and work through expense claim forms. Keeping track of all that paperwork and chasing missing receipts can be a huge headache. But with a fuel card you typically receive one consolidated invoice per week, making life very simple.
VAT made easy
Our invoices are approved by HMRC and provide a simple breakdown of VAT expenses. This makes it much easier to claim back all the VAT that’s owed to you. Plus, because your drivers can never lose a receipt, you’ll never have the problem of not being able to recover VAT on a fuel purchase. Happy days all round.
An account manager you can rely on
Our account managers know the fuel card sector inside out and back round again. This means they can answer all your questions in a timely manner and help you find the right products for your business.
Improve fleet and fuel management
As one of our customers, you’ll gain access to The Right Fuelcard Company’s excellent online account management system. This allows you to view all your fuel transactions, as well as run reports on drivers, vehicles and fuel consumption, helping you understand your expenditure better and how you can save money.
No cash. No credit cards. Just easy
You don’t want your drivers carrying large amounts of cash. Your drivers don’t want to be carrying this cash either. And although credit cards can solve this issue, they require keeping lots of faffy paper receipts. A fuel card makes everything far more simple. All your drivers need to do is hand their fuel card to a cashier and the price of their fuel is automatically charged to your company. Sorted.

Fuel card benefits for companies with large fleets
Are you operating a large fleet of vehicles? If so, fuel costs are sure to be a major consideration for you. With our fuel cards, we can offer competitive prices and access to thousands of fuel sites across the UK. A product that could save your business lots of money in just a few months.
Fixed weekly competitive prices
Our fixed weekly price fuel cards mean every litre of fuel your drivers buy is charged to your company at a flat, fixed price throughout that week. This means you’ll be able to manage your finances with no troublesome price fluctuations, stabilise your overall fuel cost and enjoy some highly competitive fuel prices.
Free set up. No minimum spend. No transaction fees
Setting up a fuel card with The Right Fuelcard Company is absolutely free. There are also no minimum spends on our cards, and no interest is paid on fuel costs because you’re charged automatically via direct debit. So why not give us a try? You really have nothing to lose.
Easy access to the fuel you need
We have a great selection of fuel cards to choose from which give you access to thousands of fuel stations across the UK. These cards cover major fuel suppliers, whole fuel networks and supermarket chains. Many cards also give you access to bunker stations that offer high-speed pumps and HGV friendly facilities.
Get tough with fuel fraud
Another great benefit of a fuel card is that it reduces the risk of anyone committing fuel fraud against your business. That’s because your company is charged directly for the fuel bought on a card. Plus, you can track every transaction through our online account management system.
Because you can assign a fuel card to an individual driver or specific vehicle, or both, the security of each card is increased. In addition, protection is beefed up another notch by our cards being either chip and PIN, swipe and PIN or swipe and signature.
Less admin saves time and money
If your business runs a pay and reclaim scheme, you’ll know how much time is taken up processing receipts and expenses claims. But with a fuel card we send you one consolidated invoice and automatically take payment via direct debit, usually seven days after the invoice has been sent.
Keeps HMRC and your bank balance happy
HMRC keeps a very watchful eye on employee expenses and fuel costs. This means your drivers must be diligent at keeping their receipts from fuel stations. Something that may cause you plenty of logistical headaches if you have dozens of drivers. However, with a fuel card your employees aren’t required to keep any paperwork. Instead, you’re sent one single invoice for your fuel purchases that provides a simple statement of your VAT spend.
An account manager who understands your business
Because customer service is so important to us, your company will be assigned a dedicated account manager. This means you’ll always talk to the same person, and someone who completely understands your business and your requirements. As a result, you benefit from fast, informed support that can solve any issues with card orders and cancellations, reporting information, and much more.
Powerful management and reporting tools
The Right Fuelcard Company’s excellent online account management system allows you to view all your fuel transactions and run reports on drivers, vehicles and the amount of fuel bought. You can also easily monitor your fuel usage, read and print invoices and manage PIN numbers for all your fuel cards. And if that wasn’t enough, our separate online site locator allows you to identify alternative routes which may take less time and use less fuel.
Complete control on spend
Because our fuel cards can be assigned to individual drivers, you can determine exactly what each individual can purchase on their card. For example, you may give drivers of your large trucks the power to only purchase fuel. While you may give salesmen who drive cars the capability to pay for fuel and extras such as car washes, lubricants and other vehicle-related products (surcharges apply).
