Benefits of BP Fuel Cards
A BP card provides you access to the best quality fuel sites and the opportunity to enable savings for your business based on their tailored pricing models. We have a selection of three BP fuel cards to choose from based on your business needs.
All BP fuel cards are mobile payment-enabled, meaning your drivers can choose to pay for their fuel (at participating sites) in the comfort of their vehicle. How? By downloading the BPme app and registering their fuel card.
Drivers remain in their vehicle when entering their mileage, ensuring that important fleet transactional data is more accurate. Fraud detection and security measures are the same as a physical BP fuel card, providing vigilant protection for your business.
As a BP fuel card UK holder, you can become part of BP’s exclusive loyalty programme, BPme Rewards. This is one of our favourite benefits of using a BP fuel card. Simply pick up a BPme Rewards card from any BP fuel station or sign up via the BPme app. You’ll be able to start earning points on qualifying BP transactions. These include your fuel purchase, or when you buy items in store, such as your coffee!
Once you’ve earned your points, you can redeem them on fuel or shop purchases or save them up in exchange for a variety of products in the BPme rewards catalogue. Your points can also be swapped for vouchers at participating retailers such as Amazon.co.uk, Marks & Spencer and Love2Shop.
The BP Plus Bunker Fuel Card
The BP Plus Bunker card offers access to BP’s vast national network of fuelling stations and is perfect for fleets that include larger vehicles such as HGVs and buses.
Accepted at over 1,200 BP fuel stations nationwide, including over 600 BP bunker sites, which are tailor made for larger vehicles. Equipped with higher canopies and high-speed diesel pumps, these fuelling stations are strategically located across the UK’s Motorway and A-road network, ensuring your vehicles are on track, and benefiting from the most cost-effective rates.
The BP Plus bunker card can be used for a variety of fleet types but is best suited for mixed fleets containing large vehicles who would benefit from accessing BP’s vast UK motorway and A road bunker network.
BP Plus Bunker Fuel Card Benefits:
"We have been supplied BP cards with Fuelmate for a number of years, they are always competitively priced, providing a great and flexible service. Easy to access your own account at any time to monitor fuel card drawings and your own account manager to deal with any questions that may arise.”

The BP List Fuel Card
The BP List fuel card is best for fleets operating both petrol and diesel vehicles that require flexibility on where they can top up. The BP Plus List card benefits from an unrivalled national coverage, offering access to both BP and cross acceptance at BP’s third-party partner network, including: Esso, Texaco and Gulf. The BP List card can be used for both petrol or diesel, offering your fleet far-reaching and comprehensive coverage on motorways, cities and town centres.
As well as this wide scope, the BP List card also provides you with a fixed weekly price across the entire nationwide network which is emailed to you ahead of time so you are always in control. This means that, with fuel prices on the rise, you could be regularly saving money.
Both the extensive coverage and the cost-effective fixed price rate make the BP List fuel card a great choice for varied fleets with a range of different fuelling and travelling requirements.
BP List Card Benefits:
"I have worked with Fuelmate for two years now. They are very helpful and quick to respond to any of my emails and calls. They are polite and provide a user-friendly service; where all our business fuel use can be monitored, via our weekly invoices. Working in a busy contracts office, it’s crucial to have a reliable supply chain; Fuelmate and our Account Manager Dan Hall is exactly that. Would definitely recommend these guys. The BP card also provides us with great national coverage.”

The BP Plus Fuel Card
The BP Plus fuel card provides your drivers access to over 3,400 sites across the UK, including Esso, Texaco and Gulf. Access to BP’s vast network of branded and partner sites enables your fleet to run optimally by reducing the need for potentially costly detours. We will keep your drivers on track, ensuring you’re able to provide your partners with the best possible service.
This card also offers a pump-based payment system as opposed to a fixed weekly rate. This means it works best for fleets of all sizes with both diesel and petrol vehicles that require extensive coverage. This card can be better for fleets that require a higher level of price transparency.
