South African petrol cards are a convenient way to buy fuel and anyone can use one, but they are mostly used by companies. All petrol garages should accept petrol cards as they are issued from banks so they are legit. ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank are some of the banks that offer these cards, so you can choose your source, according to which bank you bank with. When you make use of these cards, they work the same as most other account cards do; you basically buy fuel on account every month and the amount for the month will be debited from your bank account.
You will not have to worry about having cash on you all the time, also, for those times when you have a really long week and cash flow is slow, South African petrol cards will really come in handy. As long as you have money in your account at the end of the month to pay for the petrol you used, it will work out perfectly. There is nothing more convenient than paying for petrol using a petrol card; no stress, no fuss, and more conveniently, no cash! If you are interested in investing in one of these cards, go to a branch that you bank with, be it Nedbank, FNB, ABSA or Standard bank, and enquire. Otherwise, if your bank doesn’t do it, you can open another account, solely for the purpose of the petrol card.
All garages across the country should accept these cards, unless you come across one that is very outdated and in a town where not many people pass often. There are different options for you to choose from in South African petrol cards, so you should decide which of them would be best for your company, or your family vehicle.
