The Fuelcard Company, has launched a prepaid fuel card, Diesel Advance, allows users to ‘pay as you go’ through advance online top ups from credit or debit cards or Direct Debit.
A large number of businesses are still unable to pass credit checks to obtain a ‘traditional’ fuel card with an appropriate limit, leaving them without access to valuable monitoring tools and all-important savings at the pump. Diesel Advance is The Fuelcard Company’s solution to this problem, negating the need for pre-qualification credit checks and opening up the benefits to all businesses.
Operating on the Keyfuels network, Diesel Advance is available for use at 1,700 sites nationwide including Tesco and Morrisons, with The Fuelcard Company’s online site locator and free smartphone app allowing customers to explore the network on the move.
Head of Marketing at The Fuelcard Company, Colin Peters is expecting huge interest in this revolutionary new product. He said: “With slow economic recovery and ever-increasing fuel prices, we wanted to help businesses by providing a way to access the benefits of a fuel card, while allowing greater spending control.
“Diesel Advance is the first card of its kind in the UK and, as such, a major step forward for both The Fuelcard Company and the transport sector. We’re anticipating a substantial uptake and working with a new customer base, from the sole trader ‘White van man’ to multi-national haulage operators – the card is available to anyone with the £50 minimum top-up amount.”
