Fuel cards for taxi drivers: how do they work?

Fuel cards are incredibly straightforward to use as they function in a similar way to credit cards but are specific for fuel purchases. After filling up your vehicle at a participating petrol station, you simply pay at the kiosk using your fuel card. Payment will be taken via direct debit the following week. This is ideal for taxi companies as you can easily keep track of your drivers’ fuel expenses through our online account management system.

Fuel cards for taxi drivers: the benefits

There are numerous benefits to using Right Fuel Card for taxi companies. Regardless of whether you have one taxi or twenty, a fuel card can help save you money on fuel, improve record-keeping and give you access to discounts through supermarket reward schemes.

Save money and time

Fixed weekly price card

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 be able to stabilise your overall fuel cost, manage your finances with no price fluctuations and benefit from competitive pricing. All of which could help to save you plenty of money and time throughout the year.

Pump price card

Alternatively, if you go for a pump price card, you’ll be charged the price at the pump every time you refuel. This type of card makes everything simple and is widely accepted for diesel and unleaded petrol across the UK. As with our fixed weekly price cards, you’ll also have access to our account management system, which is great for cutting the time you spend on admin.

Easy access to the fuel you need

Usually refuel in a town or city, or on a motorway? 

No worries. 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.

No minimum spend ever

Our cards don’t have any minimum spends which is great news if you own one cab, or you own a fleet of vehicles that are not consistently out on the road. This is particularly beneficial for self-employed taxi drivers who need more flexibility from a fuel card.

No interest charges

If you or your employees are currently using a company credit card to pay for your fuel, you may be getting hit with nasty interest charges now and again. With a fuel card, you can say goodbye to extra charges and start saving some vital cash.

Assigned a business-savvy account manager

Let us take care of your account management needs as our account managers have a lot of experience working with a wide range of taxi companies. This means you’ll always have someone at hand to answer your questions and help you make the most of your fuel card.

VAT reclaim is a breeze

At HMRC, they like to keep a watchful eye on employee expenses and fuel costs. This means both you or your drivers need to make sure you keep hold of fuel receipts. Sometimes this can cause you some logistical headaches. 

But with a fuel card, there's no need for any paperwork. Instead, you’ll be sent one single invoice for your fuel purchases, with a simple and clear breakdown of your VAT spend. 

Reclaiming any VAT that’s owed to you has never been easier!

Reduced admin and easier payment

If you own a few taxis or minibuses and currently run a pay and reclaim scheme, you’ll know how much time is taken up with processing expenses claims and chasing drivers who don’t supply the fuel receipts you need. 

By giving each of your drivers a fuel card, you don’t have to worry about this anymore. That’s because each purchase made on a card is automatically charged to your account and paid via direct debit. 

Aswell as saving you money, a fuel card can reduce the hours you spend on admin.

Enhanced security, combatting fuel fraud

Our fuel cards are either chip and PIN, swipe and PIN, or swipe and signature. On top of this, you can determine what a driver can buy on their fuel card which beefs up security another notch. For example, just fuel or extras such as car washes as well.

Also, through our online account management system, you can see exactly how much fuel a driver bought and where and when they made their purchase. All of which helps to reduce the chances of fuel fraud taking place.

Improved fuel efficiency

By using a fuel card or getting your drivers to use one, you can access a wealth of data on your fuel consumption and refuelling behaviour. 

All you need to do is log into your personal online Right Fuel Card account and you’ll be able to run a wide range of reports that could help make your business become more fuel efficient. Something that could save you quite a bit of money in the long run.

Taxi load of 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 loyalty schemes, you can reap the rewards. Your points can then be exchanged for money-off vouchers for your business.

Isn't it time you started to enjoy all these benefits?

As a small business that’s gradually grown over the years, we understand how important it is to reduce costs and free up admin time that can be used on more important things. That's why we're confident that we can help your business too as we're one of the best fuel card providers in the UK. Use our quick, fuel card comparison tool and we’ll find the right one for you.
