Fuelmate launches 'one price' fuel card

Fleet news logo

Fleetmate, created by Fuelmate, allows fleet operators to pay one price at the pumps regardless of the fuel brand they are using or where they are in the country.

The new concept allows users to access to more than 7,000 UK Fuels, Keyfuels sites, BP, Shell Esso and Texaco sites across the UK.

As part of the Fleetmate deal, Fuelmate will also carry out a free fuel-use analysis for all potential customers to tailor a package closely to their drivers’ existing requirements and fuel routines.

According to Johnny Vintis, manager at Fuelmate, customers will pay the same, single price when using the branded cards at fixed price sites.

Vintis said: “We have been looking for a way of enabling customers to pay a single price for fuel for quite a while now, and have come up with what we think is a really good solution.

“Fleetmate covers most sites in the UK, so it is an ideal solution for fleets or businesses looking for comprehensive coverage throughout the country.”

Vintis added that one thing many fleet operators worry about most when changing fuel cards is drivers having to change their fuelling routines, meaning they drive further to fill up.

But he added that in the vast majority of cases, because or Fleetmate’s extensive forecourt coverage, driver routines would remain unaffected.

He said: “Fuelmate is in a fairly privileged position in the market place as we are a family business able to supply all of the major cards. I’m not sure there are any other companies in the UK that can provide what we do as our ethos is to innovate and find news solutions that make life easier for our customers.

“As such, we are one of the very few providing solutions such as the Fleetmate deal.”
