Jet has announced a significantly enhanced fuel card offering for its network of more than 300 independently-owned forecourts. As well as continuing to offer its well-established JetCard for local customers, Jet has strengthened its card offering with Fleetone through UK Fuels Ltd, enabling its dealers to offer a much more attractive package to national businesses.
The Fleetone card is accepted at more than 2,700 multi-branded fuel stations nationwide including all Jet forecourts, and acceptance is predicted to increase further in the coming months.
Stuart Cufflin, transport and retail services manager at Jet, said: "Research has shown that consumers want fuel cards they can use anywhere. By offering both our existing fuel card, JetCard, and the enhanced Fleetone card, our customers now have access to national coverage and cross-card acceptance with other major forecourt brands and supermarkets. We believe this enhanced card offering will help our dealers attract larger, national businesses."
Dealers will benefit from increased margins until June 2014, as Jet has negotiated a dealer incentive. They will also be offered support from UK Fuels, with advice on promoting the card and building their network of fuel card customers. Dealers won’t incur any costs when upgrading to Fleetone as it uses the same platform as the JetCard.
