When you run a business that relies on travel, managing fuel expenditure is often at the top of your agenda. Any opportunity that allows you to cut costs or have more control helps the company – especially in today’s competitive market and cost of living crisis. Fuel cards with no fees are a great place to start. Find out why you should try one and how to apply.
A fee-free fuel card, like fuelGenie, is the ultimate cost-effective fuel management. This is because you simply pay for the fuel you, or your drivers, use. There’s no pricey subscriptions, card fees or hidden surcharges. fuelGenie also offer unlimited free cards so every member of your fleet can have one. Without fees, as long as you pay for your bill on time, you’ll never have to worry about costs creeping up or unexplained charges.
Absolutely. Even if you just have one or two drivers, the savings from avoiding card charges (fuelGenie even offer free replacements), service (a charge every time drivers fill up), underused account or risk fees can really add up. And of course, if you have a much larger fleet, these savings quickly multiply. See our table on the difference between fuelGenie and AllStar to compare like for like and see how much you could benefit.

Thanks to the fuelGenie app with its petrol station finder, it couldn’t be easier for drivers to locate the nearest participating location and check prices. Plus, when they pay, it’s quick and effortless – there’s no need for cash, company credit cards or holding onto paper receipts.

Not having to pay additional fees is a great perk. But it doesn’t end there. There are other ways you can get the most out of your fuelGenie fuel card.
With fuelGenie, you can earn loyalty rewards when you fill up at our supermarket partners with a Clubcard, Morrisons More or Nectar card. Each supermarket is different but this can get you things like shopping discounts and money off lots of different things like meals out, holidays, experiences, insurance and more.
Did you know a fuelGenie card can also cover the cost of things other than fuel? Use it if you need to refill motor oil, give the vehicle a refresh in the car wash or top up with AdBlue, which certain diesel vehicles need to reduce the level of harmful emissions they release.
Control how much your fleet spend by setting, amending and restricting the limit for each fuelGenie card online or in the fuelGenie app. You can also control the use of additional purchase options like oil, AdBlue and car wash.
