Using fuelGenie+ as your motorway fuel card

Motorways are a key part of our transport network – with around 50 across the UK. The longest, the M6, stretches 236 miles between Leicestershire and the Scottish Border. The shortest motorway, the A308(M) in Berkshire, covers a tiny 1km. If your drivers travel long distances between towns and cities, you’ll likely use them regularly. Often the fastest and most direct route, they have multiple lanes to help millions of drivers reach their destinations each day.

Motorway fuel cards make the daily operation that much easier and mean your fleet don't need to take unnecessary detours to reach their destination and get your products delivered efficiently and on time.

What are the advantages of using a Motorway fuel card?

By using a Motorway fuel card, drivers can enjoy benefits like discounted fuel prices at specific locations, streamlined expense tracking for businesses, and access to an extensive network of fuel stations along major highways, ensuring convenience and cost-efficiency during long journeys.

Pricing matters

By consistently buying fuel at an average of 3p per litre less than the national forecourt average, the savings soon add up. Unlike most other providers, fuelGenie cards are free. Free to get, free to use and there are no hidden surcharges or minimum spends.

Using a fuel card on the motorway

As a business owner or fleet manager, maximising the efficiency of your vehicles is essential. One effective way to do this is by using motorway fuel cards to streamline the process of refuelling. If long-haul driving is key to your business, you’ll need a card which includes locations all over the UK. Luckily, with fuelGenie+, there are over 2,200 forecourts to choose from, including low-cost supermarket fuel and most Shell locations. In addition, with a fuelGenie+ card, you also have the option to access a further 2,700 third-party sites, though surcharges may apply. In this article, we’ll look at the practicalities and benefits of using fuelGenie+ card as your go-to motorway fuel card to keep your costs down and your customers happy.

Quick and easy refuelling via the app

With the fuelGenie+ fuel card, the refuelling process is streamlined. As a motorway fuel cardholder, your drivers can simply pull into any one of the participating petrol stations. If they need help finding one, they can use the handy app to locate the nearest station. Once parked up, there's no need for them to handle cash or worry about receipts. They just fill up, pay and get back on the road in no time, reducing delays or complications and maximising productivity.

Additional car care

The fuelGenie+ card can also be used to pay for oil, diesel, AdBlue or the carwash. This is key for drivers who travel long distances as they can guarantee their vehicle has the right levels of oil or AdBlue to run efficiently. Plus a clean car, van or lorry is much more than just a good look. If your drivers encounter muddy or dusty conditions, their visibility may be affected. Being able to pay for the car wash with their fuel card means they’ll be safer on the road.

Large network of petrol stations

When travelling around the country, it’s important that your drivers can find participating locations to refuel whenever they need to. One of the key benefits of the fuelGenie+ fuel card is the large network of petrol stations at supermarkets, on key transit routes, A roads and motorway sites. This extensive coverage means drivers are never far away, reducing the risk of running low on fuel and minimising downtime of your fleet.

Motorway fuel cards mean savings

In the current climate, businesses need to keep their costs down in whichever ways they can. And fuel expenses account for a significant portion of a business's overall expenditure. With fuelGenie+ motorway fuel cards, you can take advantage of low-cost supermarket fuel prices at our partners Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco. These supermarkets aren’t located on the motorway but if you plan your route in advance, it’s easy to include them on your journey as there's usually one just off a slip road. Remember, even small fuel savings accumulate over time to have a positive impact on your business's bottom line. By entering a postcode into the search bar on our site locator, you can easily find the nearest petrol station – whether you're on the M4 heading west or the M6 heading north. 

How do they streamline expenses?

Keeping track of fuel expenses for a fleet of vehicles can be a challenging task. Fortunately, having fuelGenie+ motorway fuel cards in your locker makes this a whole lot easier. As payments are made with the card, the transactions are recorded and stored electronically. This means there’s no need for manual record-keeping or collecting paper receipts. You can view transactions and monitor spending in real-time.

More control and security

When operating a fleet of vehicles, it can be difficult to stay on top of security. But with automatic and electronic records, there’s more control over what your drivers can and cannot purchase. You can assign motorway fuel cards to drivers or a specific vehicle to make sure they're only being used to pay for authorised transactions. Take additional control by setting individual spend limits and restricting the use of purchase options like oil, screen or car wash.

Easy invoice and VAT reclaim

Reclaiming VAT on diesel or petrol is a great benefit to businesses. But it can be a complex and time-consuming process. With fuelGenie+ everything is put into one HMRC approved invoice. This guarantees accurate records, speeds up and simplifies the process.

Dedicated UK support

They’re based in the UK and are contactable by phone or email Monday to Thursday 9am-5.30pm and 9am-5pm on Fridays as part of the application process.
