Fuelcards Maximise Savings for Businesses, Say Fleet Insurance Firm

KENT, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) - Fleet Insurance Company, Flint Insurance, have praised fuel cards for providing fleet car and van companies with savings on diesel and enabling them to be more effective in identifying expenditure.

The Fuelcard company have pioneered the cards, which offer fixed prices on fuel obtained from a host of sites, including Texaco, Shell and Esso. There are individual cards for specific needs, so that fleet companies have a card suited best to them as opposed to what a HGV company might require.

Fleet companies, in particular, are most likely to benefit from the cumulative savings of the 4p a litre average cut in costs, as they will notice more drastic savings due to them being multiplied across the numerous cars and vans, therefore highlighting the significant impact of the cards to businesses.

Although fuel prices have not been affected by the emergency Budget, their increased prices over the last few years have had a detrimental effect to fleet companies. So, the Fuelcards are a much welcome antidote to these rises, as the fixed weekend costs can combat the rising pump prices as well as receiving VAT invoices and fuel analysis to aid efficiency in spending within businesses.

A spokesperson for Flint Insurance, who specialise in Commercial Fleet Insurance, said: 'In these tough times for fleet companies, any savings are welcome. But the fact that Fuelcards also help bosses to monitor the fuel usage of their fleets as well, means that they are better equipped with more accurate figures for spending and can evaluate where they can make other savings too'.

The efficiency of the Fuelcards means that they are bound to become even more popular. The minimum spend for a company is only £300 and the service is available straightaway without any cost, so that companies can start to enjoy the savings sooner rather than later.

As the current climate makes it incredibly expensive to sustain a fleet business right now, these cost efficient Fuelcards could not have come at a better time.
