Allstar product aims to save fleets up to 20% off SMR costs

Fuel card provider Allstar is launching a new product which aims to help fleets save up to 20% off their vehicle servicing, maintenance and repair costs.

Allstar, which has approximately 8,000 multi branded fuel locations throughout the country, told Fleet News that from April 23 its customers’ 1.1 million drivers will also have access to 9,000 garages and service centres nationwide.

Drivers simply need to tell the garages that they will be paying for the work through Allstar when they book their vehicle in.

Allstar says that this added benefit also provides fleet managers with simplified administration and increased cost control as they will be able to manage both their fuel and maintenance costs in a combined Allstar HM Revenue and Customs approved VAT invoice.

Peter Bridgen, managing director at Allstar, said: “I’m tremendously excited for Allstar to be introducing yet another ground-breaking development to the market.

“We’ve been able to do this because of our relationship with Epyx – our sister company in the Fleetcor group – who’ll be providing the service management system to garages.”

The new Service, Maintenance and Repair service will be automatically activated on customer accounts from 23rd April 2015.

Customers will be able to search for their local service centres via Allstar’s free downloadable Android or Apple site locator app, which will include every garage across the UK where drivers can use their Allstar card.
