Review of the BP Plus Card
The BP Plus card is a fuel card that caters for Australian small businesses. Its main benefits include fuel discounts, the convenience and ability to easily track and manage corporate fuel costs, plus built-in security features like PIN, signature requirements and card purchase limits.
Features and benefits of the BP Plus Cards
Here are the card’s major features and perks:
- Card access. Use your card at over 1,400 BP sites across Australia.
- Interest-free credit. Enjoy up to 51 interest-free days with no minimum fuel spend.
- Card flexibility. BP Plus provides vehicle-specific or driver-specific cards to suit your logistical and accounting needs. Vehicle-specific cards offer multiple drivers the ability to share a car and driver-specific cards can be used if a driver needs to use multiple cars.
- Card security. BP Plus gives you the option of using a secure PIN or signature, where a PIN number is suitable for multiple users sharing a vehicle-specific card and a signature is suitable where a card is used by only one cardholder.
- Additional security and tracking. Odometer readings are taken at the point of sale, which provides an additional layer of security and tracking for the company.
- Purchase limits. Enjoy greater cost control with the ability to impose restrictions on individual cards across these parameters: time period, fuel volume or money spent.
- Convenient reporting. BP Plus provides the ease of GST-substantiated monthly reports, which lists all your company car expenses in a single monthly statement for simplified tax accounting.
- Easy online management. Access your BP Plus online account at any time where you can view reports, order new cards, report lost and stolen cards, and manage your vehicles.
- Non-fuel options. Apart from fuel-only cards, BP Plus also offers additional non-fuel card options that include “Shop”, “Carwash”, “Diner”, and “Service and repairs, tyres, batteries and parts”.
- BP Specialist Discount Network. You can save on costs with BP partners including Beaurepaires, Bob Jane T-Marts, Bridgestone, Goodyear Autocare, O'Brien Autoglass, Tyrepower and Ultra Tune. You can also use your BP Plus card for warranty servicing at participating dealerships.
