Review of the Caltex StarCard

If you and your colleagues drive a lot for work, the Caltex StarCard can reward you for your corporate car expenses. You can also link your card to your Qantas Business Rewards account to access exclusive member savings and the ability to earn Qantas Points twice (once in your individual account and once in your organisation's Qantas Business Rewards account).

As well as the savings on fuel and the ability to earn Qantas Points as you spend, you can take advantage of having all of your vehicle expenses accounted for in a single, ATO-approved monthly statement. These perks come at a cost: a $35.40 per card.

Benefits of a Caltex StarCard

    • Save on fuel costs. StarCard members can save 4 cents per litre on Vortex Premium fuels and 2 cents per litre on regular petrol and diesel. You’ll also save 10% on packaged lubricants and 5% on convenience items at selected sites.

How to apply for the Caltex StarCard

As a director, partner, owner or trustee, you can apply for the Caltex StarCard online, but make sure you have the following information handy before you begin your application:

  • Your ABN and/or ACN
  • Your driver’s licence, Medicare card or passport for electronic ID check
  • Details of the directors, partners and trustees
  • Vehicle details including registration, make, model, year and state
  • Banking details for direct debit

The Caltex StarCard can help you get extra value and rewards from your corporate car costs if you’re a regular traveller. Although the $35.40 is relatively small, make sure that the value of the membership outweighs these costs before you apply.
