Esso fuel cards

We offer two Esso fuel cards which have different pricing options to suit the needs of your business. You can choose between a fixed weekly price card or a pump price card, both of which can reduce your fuel expenditure and save you time on admin. With these fuel cards, you'll have the added benefit of being able to use Esso Synergy fuel, helping to improve your fuel economy and reduce engine deposits. 

To help you determine if an Esso fuel card is the right choice for your business, we've highlighted everything you need to know about these cards and answered some frequently asked questions.

You can access 1,200 Esso sites and have the option with the Esso Fleet fuel card to add Shell and BP sites to increase the total network coverage to over 3,400 sites. Managing your fuel expenditure is simple with an Esso fuel card, as you can monitor all transactions through our online account management system and you'll receive a single weekly invoice, making it easier to reclaim any fuel VAT owed to you.

How Esso fuel cards work

Esso fuel cards are a secure and convenient way for drivers to pay for their fuel. Unlike a credit card, you don't pay any interest fees and you'll never need to keep hold of receipts again as you'll receive a weekly invoice which details all transactions made by your drivers, saving your business a considerable amount of time. 

Using an Esso fuel card is straightforward. Drivers simply find a fuel station that accepts their card using our site locator app, fill up their vehicle and then pay at the kiosk using their Esso fuel card. Payment will then be taken the following week via direct debit. If you choose the Esso Card™ Commercial, you'll receive weekly price notifications via email or text so you know how much you'll be paying at the pump in advance. With the Esso Card™ Fleet, drivers pay pump prices for Synergy standard diesel and petrol at all Esso sites and these prices are set locally rather than nationally.

Benefits for businesses

There are many advantages to having an Esso fuel card, including reduced fuel costs, clear reporting and more streamlined payment processes for businesses. As less time needs to be spent on admin, you can focus on the things that really matter, plus the reduction in fuel costs will allow you to reinvest your money elsewhere in the business.

With an Esso fuel card, businesses can monitor driver behaviour and track vehicles' MPG to ensure they're being driven as efficiently as possible. You can also place limits on where and when the Esso fuel cards can be used, plus enforce individual spending limits to minimise unnecessary spending.
