Fuel Card Comparison

Is a Fleet Fuel Card Your Business’ Best Option?

Fueling a fleet is no small task—and no cheap task, either. When figuring out the best way to pay, many fleet managers find themselves comparing fuel cards to credit cards. To find the best option for your operation, a fuel card comparison and weighing the pros and cons, provides insight into what’s best for your vehicles. 

Depending on your needs, the differences between a credit card and a fuel card may be significant. One of the main things that sets a credit card apart is universal acceptance, while fuel cards typically only work at certain retailers. Restrictions are also a key distinction. Credit cards don’t offer specific product restrictions—that is, fleet managers can’t control specific products purchased with the card. Some managers are fine with this—others utilize restrictions as a way to curb spending and keep drivers on track. 

Fuel cards offer other things a credit card can’t—along with the spending controls, certain cards, including the Guttman Energy Fleet Fuel Card, provide itemized purchasing reports. These reports allow fleet managers to track, budget, and adjust card limits to fit their needs. Credit cards typically don’t have this amenity, so it’s useful to consider your business’s resources for overcoming reporting issues when choosing a card.

One other thing to note–not all fleet fuel cards are the same. With a Guttman Energy Fleet Fuel Card, you’ll never be hit with hidden fees. Big bank cards freeze accounts and have lofty overdraft fees which are a hassle to sort out. In contrast, the Guttman Energy Fleet Fuel Card’s customer service stands out as the best in the business. A Fleet Fuel Card rep is always available to handle any questions or issues that may arise. It even offers discount opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. 

Guttman Energy’s fueling intelligence ensures you’re getting the best value for your fleet. To learn more, contact a Fleet Fuel Card representative today at 724.489.5199.
