Allstar launches diesel discount programme

Customers of Allstar can now buy lower price diesel in over 1,700 fuel outlets – more than one in five of the total Allstar network, with its new Premier Programme product.

Callum Gibson, managing director of FleetCor UK, Allstar’s parent company, said: "We are the only fuelcard network with the ability to make this offer to the UK’s fleet drivers. By coupling our unrivalled network with investment in technology we are able to offer every one of our customers access to our discount diesel network.

"Allstar Premier Programme is a game-changer for the fleet world. It allows customers to reduce costs whilst maintaining total flexibility across our network. This is what customers have been asking for and I am delighted that we have been able to meet their demands.

"This is just the first of a range of innovative developments at Allstar this year, further strengthening our outstanding portfolio of products."

Allstar Premier Programme customers will have two fuelcards - an Allstar card plus the Allstar Discount Diesel card for use in the discount diesel network.

Fleet managers will receive one invoice and one data report covering all Allstar and Allstar Discount Diesel transactions.

According to Fleetcor, customers using the Allstar Discount Diesel card can save up to four pence per litre, and savings for a fleet of 100 vehicles could be as much as £20,000 per year.

To accompany the Allstar Premier Programme, new support products identifying discount fuel outlets, are also available:

  • New mobile app
  • Online fuel finder
  • SatNav download files

As well as additional offers:

  • Up to 40% savings on  non-fuel purchases, such as AA Breakdown Recovery and Fuel Assist
  • Access to Allstar’s team of independent fuel advisors providing free consultancy on reducing fuel costs
  • Use of Allstar’s unique fuel management tool, Business Mileage Monitor
  • No additional service fee.

      Hi Ted, There is no network service fee on diesel purchases for customers using the new Allstar Premier Programme Discount Diesel card so users save the fee and they get a better price on their diesel.

    How will customers save money when they are paying £2 per fill up transaction fee ? Have you included this cost in you savings calculation ???? I am sure you will not respond to my question on this post.

      Hi, There is no network service fee on Discount Diesel transactions for customers in the Allstar Premier Programme so they save on the diesel price and because there is no network service fee.

    The 4p rebate is also a nonsense. They may have that rebate as an introductory offer but will add extra margin to the initial reduced rate after a while. They are essentially offering customers the Keyfuels card alongside the Allstar card. Nothing new.

      Hi, The discount for Allstar Premier Programme customers is fixed and only changes in consultation with the customer. Also it is new because it is the first time that customers can access the benefits of the Allstar network plus the discounts on diesel available via 1700 Keyfuels outlets, within a single account.

    I found this site because i have been notified of the £2 per transaction fee to be implimented 15th March & am looking to change. I have estimated this would cost my company between £2k & £3k per year (we only run 15 vehicles)!!! i will be looking at the supermarket cards which can be used in Tesco & Morrisons which are amongst the cheaper sites & my drivers can collect there rewards (& it stops them using motorway sites at up to 20p/Ltr more). FEEDBACK WELCOME.

      Hi, Check out the new Allstar Premier Programme because transactions using the new Discount Diesel card don't have a service fee - and the diesel is discounted. And have a look at our Supermarket card as it may suit your fleet too.

      Contact your Allstar customer advisor who can give you all the details on the Allstar supermarket card as well as the Allstar Premier Programme, so you can decide which one will save you the most money and offers the best advantages.

      @Allstar Advisor -
      I love the way its worded SAVE YOU THE MOST MONEY is that compared to what i was paying before the introduction of the £2 fee or what i will be paying if i stay with my present deal? What about the £75 migration fee mentioned above is that to be charged?

    I can't believe they can say they are saving people money have you seen all their added extra charges they impose on my business it's not just the £2 transaction fee they slapped on, unannounced

      @John adkins - As we've said to the other people commenting on the new product we've launched, there is no transaction fee when you use the new Allstar Premier Programme diesel card, so we are saving you money when you use the card.

    If you are an existing Allstar customer and you take an Allstar Supermarket card alongside your Allstar card, there is no fee. The £75 fee is only applied If you are new to Allstar or you want to stop using the Allstar card and use the Allstar Supermarket card instead.

    I spoke with Allstar and they offered to reduce the fee to £1 for a time but didn't state how long. The problem is they do have the best network for one fuel card.

    However the FTA/RHA card isn't far behind from my investigations this week and currently certainly beats our local Asda for price with the Platts + pricing. Yes the reduced number of sites will cause the drivers to have to think about fill points but it certainly will not cost me the estimated £40K a year extra for transaction charges + other fees. As for £75 to change accounts Ha Ha Ha - keep my custom or really invite me to the door.

    We were told by our account manager last year that the fee would be % based and I think that this was also reflected in publications last year but a flat £2 across the range is ridiculous.

    Oh well vote with feet or wheels as the case may be ...

      @Speedy Diesel - As you say, Allstar does have the best network and it does cost your drivers a lot to go out of their way to get to outlets in more restricted networks. There is no charge to take on the Allstar Premier Programme and there are no transaction charges on purchases made using the diesel discount card so you will save money on your diesel vehicles if you use these cards.
      You should agree with your Allstar account manager how long the transaction fee you have been offered, is for.

      @Speedy Diesel -

      AllStar no longer has the best network. The new Barclaycard Fuel+ covers 99% of the UK network, has no transaction fees or replacement card fees, features Chip and PIN security (meaning drivers can use it at, say, unmanned Asda pumps at night if they need to), and comes with savings guarantee.

      There is now real choice in the UK fuel market. And Europe too, actually, since Fuel+ also works in euros.
