Supermarket Fuel Cards: Our Business Guide

Person paying with fuel card at petrol pump for diesel gas

There are a number of fuel card companies nowadays that give businesses access to the forecourts of some of our most popular supermarkets.

Chains such as TescoSainsbury’s and Morrison’s all run a comprehensive fuel supply network with service stations on site at their main stores. Fuel card companies have been offering products that can be used at these fuelling points in a couple of ways over recent years, as part of a wider provision for fleets operating across the UK and Europe but also as a more focused card that simply gives local businesses access to low costs and better fuel management and administration.

Businesses will no doubt like the dual benefits of a supermarket fuel card where they can get better bulk prices by subscribing to a particular provider as well as taking advantage of the supermarket’s own buying power. But for many fleets it is also a question of reducing costs by cutting down on administration and providing their drivers or employees with a secure and easy way to purchase fuel.

  • Most supermarkets, except Sainsbury’s, do not produce their own brand fuel card.
  • Coverage for sites at Tesco, Morrison’s and Somerfield is provided by independent suppliers.
  • Asda does not currently take part in any fuel card provision.

What to look for in a supermarket fuel card

Whilst a supermarket fuel card can provide access to greater savings for some business fleets, there are a number of reasons why it may or may not be suitable. For a company that needs greater national or even European coverage it might be more cost effective to select a card provider that gives a wider spread of service stations. Alternatively, those companies that operate a fleet more locally may well find it just as cost effective to tie their drivers to one or two particular supermarket refuelling sites.

The key areas to look at with a supermarket fuel card, as with other products, include:

  • The number of outlets that the card can be used at and whether it is suitable for your business fleet needs.
  • The cost of the card, including any upfront charges or annual fee.
  • The support provided by the supermarket fuel card company including by telephone and online.
  • The fuel management tools that are available online including provision for producing reports and managing individual cards.

Other fuel cards

The above supermarket fuel card suppliers are just a few in a competitive market, so it pays to shop around and compare like for like. For instance, the Texaco and UK Fuels cards are available from a number of resellers who offer similar benefits and support structures.

Our Methodology: How Did We Do Our Research?

Five researchers carried out in-depth research into UK fuel cards according to a comparison framework designed by our research team leader. For each card we’ve asked these questions:

  • How convenient is it to use?
  • How helpful is it for managing fuel expenses?
  • What can it do to ensure your company’s funds are secure?
  • What extra benefits do you receive from using it?

We’ve also broken down each card by fee structure, fuel type, network coverage and more to offer you the easiest choice.


Whilst there are no set supermarket fuel cards per se (with the exception of Sainsbury’s branded card), there are a number of suppliers and resellers who provide cards that can be used at these forecourts. Some supposed supermarket fuel cards are actually general ones that have an additional network associated with them, such as the Texaco Fastfuel Card.

Supermarket fuel cards are ideal for a range of fleets, but more notably for smaller, localised ones that can benefit from a single point of refuelling for drivers. Most of the cards come with no initial or annual cost and generally do not stipulate a minimum usage as more widely used fuel cards often do.

Finding the right fuel card for your business can make all the difference if you want to keep the costs down and have a network that serves your drivers adequately. You can now search through the Expert Market data base and get the right comparisons for your business fleet. It’s simple to use, just start below and complete the form.
