Shell fuel card

In a sea of fuelling options, differing brands and fuel card products, finding the perfect fuel card for your business can be tricky. If you're looking for a fuel brand that offers premium quality and the largest presence of any branded fuel card in the UK, then Shell fuel cards may be the best option for your fleet.

With a variety of fuel card options available and a rewards scheme, Shell fuel cards have a lot to offer.

What is a Shell fuel card?

At its core, a Shell fuel card performs like any other fuel card on the market; it lets drivers in your fleet purchase fuel from pre-approved stations and vendors. However, Shell's fuel cards also come with an array of features and additional benefits, making them a popular choice amongst fleet owners.

Why choose a Shell fuel card from Right Fuel Card?

Aside from competitive rates, Right Fuel Card offers an online account management system that helps to make the administrative side of managing a fleet easier. This system contains reporting features, so you can easily track your Shell fuel purchases online. In addition, our site locator gives drivers the option to check Shell locations before setting out so that they can ensure they’re never too far from a Shell forecourt when embarking on long journeys.  Drivers can also access the Shell Go+ app, which offers benefits such as discounted Car Care products and discounted drinks.

Shell fuel cards can now be used for more than just fuel. You can use your card to pay for bridge, toll fees and even EV charging, so drivers don’t need to worry about carrying cash or two separate cards on the road.

Many of the available Shell fuel cards allow for the cheaper purchase of Fuelsave Diesel, a scientifically developed fuel designed to make your engine last longer. Likewise, their V-Power diesel allows your drivers to fill their engines with a high-performance fuel that's capable of cleaning the engine, even removing old deposits left behind from other fuels. A cleaner engine can lead to a higher mileage per gallon and could even reduce the amount of servicing your vehicle's engine requires.

To help find a solution to suit your business needs, Shell offers several fuel card options.  We recommend chatting with one of our fuel card experts to ensure that you get the best fuel card option for your fleet.
