The benefits of a Fuel Card for a sole trader

Save money again and again


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 control of your overall fuel cost. Depending on the card, these can be used at branded sites such as Shell and BP or at supermarket forecourts.

Alternatively, you could choose a pump price 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.

Huge choice of stations

Our range of fuel cards offer access to thousands of fuel stations across the UK. They cover major fuel brands such as BP, Shell and Esso, the fuel networks of UK Fuels and Keyfuels, and even supermarket fuel providers including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons. You’ll never be struggling to find a station to refuel at.

A dedicated account manager

You’ll be given a dedicated account manager which means you’ll always have someone in your corner to answer all your questions and help you make the most of your fuel card.

No minimum spend

Our cards don’t have any minimum spends. That’s great news if you only have one business vehicle that you use now and again.

No nasty interest charges

As a sole trader, you’re probably using a company credit card to pay for your fuel. This may mean incurring some hefty interest charges throughout the year. With a fuel card, you can say goodbye to these and save some vital cash.

Easy online management

As one of our customers, you’ll gain access to Right Fuel Card’s online account management system. This allows you to monitor all your fuel transactions, view and print invoices, and manage all your fuel cards. On top of this, you can run a number of reports to help you understand your expenditure better and how you can save money.

VAT made simple

The invoices you receive from Right Fuel Card meet all of HMRC’s strict standards. They’re also presented in a way that makes processing your VAT much easier. In addition, there’s no way you can lose any paper receipts for fuel, which means you’ll always be able to reclaim any fuel VAT that’s owed to you.

Quick and secure payment

Our fuel cards are either chip and PIN, swipe and PIN or swipe and signature, which allows you to pay for your fuel in a speedy and safe way.

Supermarket rewards points

Because many of our fuel cards can be used to purchase fuel at supermarket stations or from major fuel suppliers which are linked to points schemes, you can reap the rewards. Your points can then be converted into vouchers that can pay for loads of great stuff for yourself or your business.
