Fleet Advantage Cards Save You Money

Fleet Advantage Cards can save you money

The Fleet Advantage card stands alone in the credit card fuel market and is the Australian Truckies fuel card of choice in what can be a confusing marketplace.
With so many different fuel and diesel card offerings in the marketplace, it is often hard to compare apples with apples. Some cards offer discounts on fuel, some offer the convenience of acceptance across multiple brands and sites and some more favourable credit and trading terms. One thing that all these products have in common however, are the monthly card fees and costs. Depending on which card you choose, these fees can ultimately determine whether you are really saving money at all!

Disguised as transaction fees or monthly admin charges, either way, it comes out of your pocket. Let’s assume you have a fleet of 40 vehicles and your current card costs are $3 per card per month, it will cost your business $1440 per year to have this convenience. However if the same fleet had the Fleet Advantage fuel card, which has an administration card cost of only 0.99 cents per card per month, then your total cost per year would be just $475.20 – a massive saving of $964.80 per year.

The difference with Fleet Advantage is that it has negotiated a buying group price arrangement for businesses both big and small. Whether you are a transport fleet hauling freight, a courier driver running about town, a tradesman getting the job done or you own one or a fleet of taxis, Fleet Advantage understands how hard it is negotiate with the major fuel companies and has done all the hard work for you.

Fleet Advantage customers will not only get the lower admin fees but can also take advantage of the pre-negotiated discounts of 4.4 cents per litre off Diesel and Unleaded and 15 cents per litre off LPG. All discounts are calculated off the daily Shell card posted price and are available at all Shell/Coles sites nationally.

Fleet Advantage…finally a fuel card that gives you the “Advantage!”
