HAMPSHIRE Chamber of Commerce has appointed The Fuelcard People, as its preferred fuel cards supplier. Its 1,600 member companies now have access to discount diesel and petrol not just throughout Hampshire, but across the UK.

Andrew Finney, (below) chairman and president of Hampshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We wanted to appoint a supplier which offers not just significant fuel cost savings, but genuine personal service."


Basingstoke Gazette:

“We looked at a number of factors which, taken together, would mean finding our members the best possible refuelling deal. The Fuelcard People offers an unbeatable combination of service, savings and security.”

The Fuelcard People is a brand of the Fuel Card Group. Its marketing manager, Steve Clarke, said: “We are proud to have been appointed, because we believe that fuel cards should offer more than cost savings. “Now, Hampshire Chamber members do not have to drive around looking for the best refuelling deal, because they already have it.”

Lower fuel costs, eliminated paperwork and reduced administrative workloads are just the start of the benefits available to members.

Fixed weekly pricing for diesel, petrol or both means typical saving of up to 5p per litre on national average pump prices, or 10p per litre on motorway prices, and applies nationwide.

A single weekly invoice also means up to two weeks of free credit before a member’s direct debit payment. Significantly, there will be no transaction fees – some suppliers levy a charge of £2 or more for each refuelling stop.

A member of Hampshire Chamber will not be pushed towards any particular product, but will receive impartial advice on the most appropriate fuel card for their individual needs. They will also always talk to their own dedicated account manager, who knows their business, rather than having to queue for an anonymous call centre operator. Depending upon which fuel card or cards Chamber members choose, they can refuel at thousands of filling stations throughout the UK. The range includes fuel cards which are valid at BP, Esso, Shell and Texaco sites as well as supermarkets, independent retailers and specialist diesel networks.

Other benefits include 24/7 secure Internet account access, including transactions yet to be invoiced. Custom reports are available on demand, for download directly into standard business packages. The use of eServices means that the whole process can be paperless and administration-free.
