Fuel card provider Fuelmate has agreed terms with Belgium firm DKV Euro Service to supply a card which is accepted at service stations across the continent, regardless of fuel brand.
The DKV card, which will be available from January, is aimed at UK hauliers and other businesses that regularly send drivers abroad.
Fuelmate is the second UK firm appointed by DKV Euro Service to supply the card.
As well as buying fuel, it can be used to pay road tolls, buy essential items such as tyres and pay for vehicle maintenance.
Johnny Vintis, manager of Fuelmate, said: “The card can be used anywhere, at any fuel station, which means you don’t have to plan your journey based around branded fuel cards, but the real added value comes from the extras it offers.
“To be able to pay road tolls and for vehicle maintenance via a fuel card is an enormous benefit for British drivers abroad. It means if anything goes wrong, from a chipped windscreen or punctured tyre, to a major breakdown, they can get it sorted out quickly and efficiently and get back on the road in the quickest possible time.”
Vintis added that Fulemate is expecting significant uptake.
“I think that once British hauliers realise the benefits the DKV card will bring to driving in Europe, it will be in high demand,” he said.
