Topaz, the largest fuels and convenience retailer in Ireland, has announced that it is to be the official fuel supplier to GoCar, the only car sharing initiative in the Irish Republic.

The car club, which currently operates in Dublin and Cork, has 70 vehicles which are equipped with Topaz Fuel cards for members to refuel on their trips.

GoCar works on a pay-per-trip basis which allows users the freedom to access a vehicle when and as they need it. Another bonus with GoCar is that members aren’t charged for parking at any pay and display parking spaces.

Topaz commercial director Liam Mulcahy said: “Car clubs like GoCar have sprung up in a host of major European and US cities and the concept is rapidly catching on here in Ireland. At Topaz we are always looking at ways to enhance customer service or to provide them with new services and that’s exactly what GoCar does.”

Colm Brady, managing director of GoCar Ireland, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Topaz as our fuel supplier. Their commitment to quality and efficient fuels together with excellent service at their extensive network makes them an ideal partner. We want to offer our members an innovative and convenient travel solution that works to improve the urban living environment. This partnership with Topaz is just another example of this.”
