The waiver of application fee on business fuel cards comes at the right time for UK Businesses that are already reeling under heavy fuel duty levy. The move should benefit hundreds of small and large businesses.
(PRWEB) July 19, 2010
The Fuelcard Company has announced a complete waiver of the annual card fees for the fuel cards that are ordered through the business fuel card website, http://www.businessfuelcards.co.uk. The company has been offering business fuel cards from Shell, Esso, Keyfuels and Texaco through its business fuel card site for the past 3 years. This move is expected to benefit businesses that intend to use fuel cards as an effective means to control and manage fleet fuelling costs.
The Company’s Web-Marketing Manager, Mr. Anthony Hobbs, confirmed that the decision to make the fuel cards free was taken in the best interests of the UK applicants who are already battling high fuel duty levies. He said, ‘we are trying to remove any sort of initial start-up fee to help more businesses adopt fuelcards for their business and fleet operations. This has gained significant importance in the past few months when the fuel pricing has had an adverse impact on fleet budgeting forecasts for the entire year.’
The move by The Fuelcard Company is expected to benefit hundreds of new fuel card applicants. The company’s website has already been updated to reflect the changes in pricing and advertise the zero-application fee for new subscribers. Any new Shell card applicant, Keyfuels card applicant, Esso card applicant or a Texaco card applicant will be able to take up this special offer on the respective fuelcards by filling out an online application form on the business fuelcard website. Nothing more needs to be done by the applicant.
Mr. Hobbs confirmed that once they receive the fuelcard application, one of their fuel card specialists will process it and wil contact the applicant if any further information is needed. He also suggests new card applicants use the “Fuel Card recommendation tool on the home page of businessfuelcards.co.uk which will help them pick the most suitable fuel card that will benefit their business after weighing in factors like annual consumption, size of fleet and area of operation or geography of the fleet.
