Fuel Cards for Housing Associations

Working with a housing associations group typically involves commuting between properties, and with the increase in petrol and diesel prices, it’s important to save the pennies where possible. Providing fuel cards to staff members is a great method to control fuel expenses and save on both the cost of fuel and administration time, which is important in today’s economic climate.

How do fuel cards for housing association drivers work?

Fuel cards are simple to use; employees only need to present the fuel card at participating stations to pay for their fuel. Drivers won't need to carry company cash or keep track of receipts to recoup expenses when using a fuel card. Also, with fuelGenie cards, drivers can earn supermarket rewards on each transaction.

Where can fuel cards be used?

Depending on your housing association's team and where they are primarily based will be deciding factors in the selection of the type of fuel card needed. The majority of fuel cards can only be used at fuel stations that accept them, thus it's critical to confirm the coverage of a fuel card before committing.

fuelGenie offers the fuelGenie and fuelGenie+ fuel card solutions. Your drivers can use fuelGenie fuel cards at Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury's stations and because there are no fees to join the scheme and you can have unlimited free cards. It is the ideal choice if you're seeking an affordable strategy to control fuel costs.


With a fuelGenie+ card, drivers can fill up at more than 2,200 locations throughout the UK, including most Shell stations. Your drivers can now manage their spending with ease, and you'll always know what they're purchasing.

Our app makes finding fuel stations easy while your drivers enjoy the convenience of refuelling, taking a break and getting refreshed. It’s all possible using our account management features, which allow you to streamline administration.
