A new deal between the Fuelcard Company and Tesco will allow fleet drivers to be able to use their Keyfuel cards at any of the supermarket forecourts at no extra charge. The deal will mean drivers will have an extra 475 sites which extends the network of available forecourts to 1925.
The partnership will secure Keyfuels’ place as one of the most prominent networks in the United Kingdom, with drivers able to access diesel at a single fixed price regardless of the advertised retail pump price. Tesco join rival supermarkets Morrison’s and Somerfield as well as the extensive motorway service station network, Moto, in accepting Keyfuels cards. Commercial van drivers will also be able to collect club card points on their fuel purchases with one point for every £2 spent on diesel added to their card.
Lee Atkinson, partnership manager at The Fuelcard Company, said “This new partnership with Tesco will give fleet drivers with Keyfuels cards access to an extended network of sites at convenient locations around the UK. Whether they are travelling on motorways or through towns and cities, our customers can have peace of mind knowing that there is a filling site within reach. With the price of fuel reaching record highs, we are trying to give our customers as much help as we can.”
By guaranteeing a fixed price across the whole Keyfuels network, fleet managers will not get any nasty surprises when it comes to paying for their fuel at the pump. Each business will receive a weekly price notification via email or text confirming the fuel price for the following week so that they can plan ahead. Businesses will be able to monitor the fuel usage of each of the vans which are protected with commercial vehicle insurance and fleet managers will also be provided with a wealth of information which will help identify any area where a saving can be made.
