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 meet the following eligibility requirements and have the relevant information handy before you begin your application.

Eligibility

  • Age. You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Position in business. You must be the business owner, or a director, partner or trustee of the business to apply for this card.
  • Purpose of card. You're only eligible to get a StarCard if it will be used wholly or predominantly for business purposes.

Application details

You will need to provide the following details during the application:

  • Your ABN
  • Your driver’s licence
  • Details of the directors, partners and trustees
  • Your bank account details

Also note that popular, optional services have been pre-selected on the application form. Make sure you read details of these services carefully and uncheck any that are not appropriate for your circumstances. If you're applying on behalf of a company or trust, you will also need to sign a Deed of Guarantee, Indemnity and Charge, which is sent to you after the application is submitted.

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 annual fee is relatively small, make sure that the value of the membership outweighs these costs before you apply.
