Fuel cards work by allowing company individuals to fill up at petrol stations within our network. Instead of paying with cash or credit/debit cards, the company employee simply presents the card to the cashier. The company is billed directly and the employee can collect a receipt as proof of purchase.
Can Anyone Use a Fuel Card?
The fuelGenie fuel card can be used by UK businesses, from SME's to large companies with fleets. Companies can give a fuel card to each employee to use to manage their fuel usage. The company will pay for the fuel. Unfortunately, individuals cannot use a fuel card from fuelGenie.
How to Use a Fuel Card
- Arrive at any petrol filling station within our network
- Fuel up your vehicle with the required amount of fuel
- Present your fuelGenie fuel card along with your points card
- You will be asked for the VRN
- You will be asked if you want to record mileage (optional for businesses that record mileage)
- The fuel card will then be swiped for payment (fuelGenie cannot be used as part payment)

- You will be given your card with receipts back and you can be on your way!

Are Fuel Cards Worth It?
We definitely think fuel cards are worth using if you have a business in the UK or Northern Ireland. But our customers think so too. This is what one of our clients has said about us…
"It is a cost effective solution for our company.
Never had any issues with the online system, use in stores and someone is always at the end of the phone for any queries.
We have a fleet of vehicles within the company that fill up every day throughout the year and we didn't want to provide everyone with company charge cards nor expect them to use their own cards.
Within the first 3 months our bills had reduced by 30% and we saved around 3 hours a month reconciling transactions via receipts received from our Sales, Installation & Maintenance Teams."
Mrs. Anna Fisher (Financial Controller) Key Managed Services
We have many more fuel card reviews from our customers.
Can Fuel Cards Save Money?
Most definitely. Fuel cards can save money for businesses in a number of ways. Firstly, the administration time saved in not having to manually reconcile fuel purchases and receipts will save valuable time and money for your company. Secondly, as the fuel card account generates HMRC approved invoices, you can save additional time and money when it comes to the end of each VAT quarter, as your account is guaranteed a valid VAT invoice. Lastly, the fuelGenie petrol station network comprises major supermarket chains including; Tesco , Sainsbury's and Morrisons , with typically 3 pence per litre cheaper fuel.
