Fuelcard Company Prices
The company offers a range of cards which can be based upon a fixed price or pump price depending on type of card and the fleet’s needs. The cost of each card is £18 per year and each individual driver or vehicle is invoiced to the business on a weekly basis, payment is then deducted by direct debit around seven days thereafter.

Euopean Fuel Card
There are two offered by the Fuelcard Company: The DKV and UTA fuel cards which are suitable for fleets that operate within the European Union. Benefits include toll payments and extended invoicing.
The Fuelcard Company is a reseller rather than an organisation that produces its own branded product. It is an international concern and boasts some 500,000 satisfied customers worldwide. Whilst most of the Fuelcard Company reviews are positive there have been some concerns about hidden charges. As with all fuel card providers it’s worth checking out the possibility of additional fees – for example, the Fuelcard Company prices for non-usage in any particular quarter is £35 and covers administration fees.
The company also offers the chance for prepaid cards rather than buying and then invoicing which helps some businesses keep greater control of their fuel budgets – particularly useful for SMEs with smaller fleets. They don’t offer deals with other major fuel companies such as BP but coverage is fairly extensive with the current network in the UK and across Europe and includes all Morrison stores.
There are a now large range of fuel cards on the market for businesses to choose from and the Fuelcard Company is just one of them.
