Fuel cards for taxis

Save money at the pumps and stop your admin headaches

Whether you’re a black cab driver in a major city, run a taxi company in a rural area or regularly do airport runs in your minibus, we’re positive we have the right fuel card for you. That’s because we have a wealth of experience working with a wide range of taxi companies.

So please get in touch with our expert team of advisers for a no obligation chat. You can tell them about your business and your specific fuel needs, including where you regularly travel to and how often you refuel. They’ll then start to match you to the perfect fuel card for you and your company.


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

Saving you money and time

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.

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.

 

Make interest charges a thing of the past

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 all this nonsense and start saving some vital cash.


An account manager who understands your business

We have a number of account managers who have a lot of experience working with a wide range of taxi companies. This means you’ll always have someone at hand to answer all your questions and help you make the most of your fuel card.

 

Keep HMRC and your bank balance happy

Over at HMRC they like to keep a watchful eye on employee expenses and fuel costs. This means you or your drivers must be diligent at keeping receipts for your fuel spend. Something that may cause you some logistical headaches. However, with a fuel card you aren’t required to keep any paperwork. Instead, you’re sent one single invoice for your fuel purchases that provides a simple breakdown of your VAT spend. This makes reclaiming any VAT that’s owed to you much easier.

 

Reduced admin and easier payment

If you own a number of 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. As well as saving you money, a fuel card can definitely reduce the hours you spend on admin.


Better security and tough on 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.

 

Improve 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 account management system 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.  

 

Tonnes 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 as well as loads of other great stuff for you or your business.
