After the success of our original free fuel card – fuelGenie – we wanted to offer businesses an option with even more locations and benefits. Last year, we launched fuelGenie+. It’s the perfect choice for companies who clock up thousands of miles and want the security of even more places to refuel. So if you’re in the market for a new fuel card or you’ve never used them before, discover all the great benefits of fuelGenie+ in this article.
What is fuelGenie+?
fuelGenie+ is a fuel card, that’s strictly for businesses. It’s here to help business owners manage their fleet, save money and simplify admin. At the same time, it makes it easier and quicker for drivers to refuel. It’s the next step up from the free fuelGenie fuel card. For just 50p per month per card, drivers can fill up at 2,200+ locations all over the UK – supermarkets, key transit routes and popular A-roads.
What are the top five fuelGenie+ benefits?
- No hidden fees
When we say no hidden fees, we mean it. Other than paying 50p a month per card, you won’t be hit with any nasty surprises. Some fuel cards use surcharges, where you pay an additional cost on top of the fuel, or fixed prices, which means you don’t pay the pump price. fuelGenie+ is completely transparent. That means no surcharges or fixed prices now, or ever. As an added bonus, there’s no minimum contract or spend either.
- Low-cost supermarket fuel & most Shell petrol stations
The key feature of our original fuelGenie fuel card is the low-cost supermarket prices. That’s still key to fuelGenie+ as it also benefits from our partnership with Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s. The reason we choose supermarket fuel is because the pump prices are often significantly lower, which is a great way for businesses to cut costs. On top of that, with fuelGenie+, drivers can now refuel at selected Shell petrol stations. This gives even more places to choose from.
- 24/7 sites
Most businesses don’t restrict their hours to 9-5. From early morning jobs to late night deliveries and overnight journeys. When your employees are on the road around the clock, they need a safe place to stop and refuel the vehicle (or themselves). With fuelGenie+, we now have additional sites that are open 24/7.
- Larger vehicle access
When we think of driving, we often picture a car. But many businesses use vans, trucks and lorries to carry their valuable goods and drivers. When it comes to finding a petrol station, it can be tricky to locate one that accommodates bigger vehicles. That’s why the additional fuelGenie+ locations include several sites with larger vehicle access to give your drivers parking peace of mind. Plus they don’t need to waste time searching for them – it’s easy to find the nearest one using the fuelGenie app.
- Drivers collect loyalty & Shell Go+ rewards
As well as the low-cost fuel, filling up at supermarkets has extra perks. Drivers can pick up loyalty rewards with their Tesco Clubcard, My Morrisons or Nectar card. These precious points can then be used on the food shop, for dining out or family days. It doesn’t end there. fuelGenie+ means drivers can also collect Shell Go+ rewards. This gives 10% off Deli2Go food, hot drinks, oil and car wash. It’s a great incentive for you and your drivers.
More reasons to love fuelGenie+
Easy VAT reclaim
Reclaiming VAT on fuel is one of the key perks of being a business. But the process can be slow and complicated. In the past, to claim it back, you’d have to collect and hold onto paper receipts then submit them as evidence. With fuelGenie+, when drivers pay on their card, every transaction is stored electronically. That way, we can provide you with one simple HMRC approved invoice.
On-the-go account management
Staying on top of the admin that comes with running a business can be really tricky. Especially if you and your drivers are constantly on-the-go. With fuelGenie+ (and fuelGenie), it’s a lot easier. All your details are stored in one place. You can manage your account online or via our app to apply limits, check your balance, make changes and more.
Petrol station locator
If your drivers are in an unfamiliar area and in need of fuel, our app lets them find the nearest petrol station. Not only that, but it displays the pump prices so they can compare to find the cheapest too. Today, with volatile fuel costs , this feature is really handy. All they need to do is pull over and open the app to use it.
We pride ourselves on our friendly, UK-based customer service team. We’ve even got 4.4/5 on Trustpilot to prove it. They’re on hand to help with any queries about applying for a fuel card or managing your account.
