Texaco Fuel Cards Review

Texaco is one of the four major petrochemical companies in the world and first came to the UK in 1916 since when the brand has developed and innovated on a global level. Not only is it involved in the refinery business with large plants in places like South Wales, but it also has a healthy distributions service dealing with 270,000 barrels of crude a day throughout Europe. The company takes on independent retailers and provides petrol for some 800 service stations across the UK.

The Texaco Business Fuel Card is designed to offer a great package to both small and large fleets with all the usual add-ons that make it worthwhile. The cards they offer can be used in some 2,000 stations over the UK and are designed to cut down on administration and fuel cost which makes them an attractive proposition for many businesses that operate a fleet of vehicles. Probably more than most suppliers, Texaco has geared a good deal of its provision to the smaller business end of the market.

Expert verdict

Texaco present two fuel cards that do what they say on their tins, ideal for small businesses and larger concerns who run multiple vehicles and transportation fleets. It offers the largest network of retailers in the market and is the only company that offers its customers clear fixed retail pricing that can help manage transportation costs.

There is a very small surcharge of 0.01 pence per litre when the card is used at BP stations but this is nominal even for very large fleets. If companies are concerned about their green credentials Texaco also offer carbon offsetting for just 80 pence per card in use with their Ecopoint option. Whilst the Texaco Fuel Cards cater mainly for small to medium size vehicles and not necessarily to the HGV or coach market, they present value for money and much needed help in reducing costs and streamlining fleet costs.
