Fuel Cards and Associated Services VI

Allows all public sector organisations to buy vehicle fuel from service stations and fuel stations using a fuel card. Includes regional, nationwide and European locations.


You can use a fuel card to pay for the fuel and related services you use while driving for official business. To pay for the fuel and services, you will need to show your card after each transaction.

Every month you will receive consolidated management information which will show all the transactions made using the fuel card for that month.

This detailed management information report can help you to:

  • control the amount of money you spend on fuel for your vehicle fleet
  • reduce the time you spend dealing with administration

You do not need to have a large fleet of vehicles to use this agreement and you can allocate fuel cards to vehicles and / or drivers. This means that employees will not need to make expense claims for fuel.

Carbon emissions reports are also available to help with the development of your carbon reduction plan.

This agreement will last for 4 years and you will have the option to extend for a further year.


  • reduced fees and charges compared to market prices
  • savings on fuel reflected in a reduction (pence per litre) off pump price
  • no minimum fleet size needed
  • suppliers can help you to map out any regular driving routes and to see where you can achieve the best prices or discounts
  • helps fleet managers to control costs
  • use your fuel card to buy fuel in bulk and store it in a designated site(s)
