Lyreco to remove ‘free’ fuel benefit after switching to Barclaycard Fuel+ and TMC

Lyreco’s 500 company car drivers will relinquish their 'free' private fuel benefit in April following the business’s switch to Barclaycard Fuel+ in association with TMC.

Fuel+ combines a fuel card, accepted by 98% of UK fuel sites, with TMC's  audited mileage capture system.  As well as delivering guaranteed cost savings and HMRC-compliant travel records, Fuel+ will provide Lyreco with the data and analysis needed to manage its fuel policy transition.

“We like the integration between the fuel card and the mileage data. It's a neat and complete solution," said Duane Fullwood, financial director of Lyreco.

Before selecting Fuel+, Lyreco also looked at other fuel cards and mileage recording options. 

Fullwood said: "We choose the integrated solution from TMC and Barclaycard for a number of reasons. It’s cost-effective and has won awards for innovation. TMC's mobile app, with GPS journey-tracking capability, helps our drivers and we can see that other organisations are using the solution for similar reasons to ourselves.

"We also like the outbound driver support from TMC's customer team, whom we've met."

Lyreco rolled out Fuel+ to company car drivers in two phases between August and October 2015 in order to give drivers time to adapt to recording their business journeys before free fuel benefit ends next April.
