Reduced fleet costs

These fuel cards offer significant cost-saving opportunities to businesses. With fixed weekly pricing at a competitive rate, drivers can save money every time they refuel. Unlike a credit card, there are no interest fees, and we pride ourselves on having no hidden costs. 

With a fixed-price Shell fuel card, you’ll receive weekly price notifications by text or email. This ensures you always know what your drivers are paying at the pump and gives you full control over your fuel expenditure.  

Businesses can also save money through the Shell Go+ rewards scheme. On every 10th visit, you’ll receive a fuel reward and for every 300 litres of Shell V-Power you purchase, you’ll receive a £3 reward.

Complete fuel management

Our 24/7 online account management system allows businesses to conveniently manage their fuel expenditure. With detailed transaction reporting and analytics, you can accurately monitor fuel usage for all fuel cards and there’s no need for drivers to keep hold of receipts. 

All transactions are displayed on one invoice, regardless of fuel type. This is particularly useful for businesses with mixed fleets, as petrol, diesel and EV transactions can easily be viewed in one convenient place.  

This streamlined administration allows you to budget effectively and frees up valuable time for you to focus on other aspects of your business.

Shell fuel is renowned for its high quality, a result of rigorous refining processes and advanced technological innovations. Formulated with exclusive additives, Shell fuels are designed to enhance engine performance and efficiency, helping vehicles run smoother and longer. 

Their premium fuels, such as Shell V-Power, contain advanced cleaning agents that actively remove deposits from critical engine parts, optimising performance and reducing emissions.

Fuel theft and unauthorised purchases can be major concerns for businesses. Shell fuel cards come equipped with advanced security features designed to mitigate these risks. 

With options such as PIN protection, real-time transaction alerts, and spending limits, you can have peace of mind knowing that your fuel purchases are secure. These features prevent overspending and protect your business from fuel card fraud.
