What is a fuel gift card?
You can buy fuel gift cards online, in supermarkets and at most petrol stations, which you can use to pay for fuel and other services such as car washes, washer fluid and other maintenance costs. These cards and vouchers are suited to Australians who regularly purchase petrol and want to save time at the checkout. They can also come in handy if you want to manage your fuel budget separately from your credit or debit accounts. If you're looking for fuel charge cards, as opposed to gift cards or vouchers, check out our Fuel Cards Guide.
Where can I purchase a petrol gift card?
As convenient to buy as they are to use, fuel gift cards and vouchers can be purchased online, directly from the petrol station or even from the supermarket. If you have a preferred petrol provider or fuel network, you will want to confirm if it offers a gift card. That way you can ensure that the card you're using offers convenience and aligns with your regular spending behaviour. Before you apply, make sure you read the terms and conditions. For example, you should confirm where the card is accepted and if there are any expiry restrictions before you apply.
The value of the gift card will vary, but you can usually find gift cards that value between $5 to $500. These cards can often be reloaded, but remember to consider how much you or your recipient will need before you purchase the card.
Other types of fuel cards
If you're buying a fuel gift card or voucher for personal use, you might want to consider a credit card that earns points on fuel purchases instead. For example, the American Express Platinum Edge Credit Card awards up to 3 Membership Reward Points per $1 spent.
To manage business costs and take advantage of ongoing savings, you could also consider a fuel charge card rather than a gift card or voucher. Like a credit card designed for petrol purchases, you can use these cards to pay for fuel, manage your cash flow with a line of credit and track all of your corporate car costs under one account. Some cards also allow you to earn points as you spend and offer discounts per litre of fuel purchased.
Check out our guide to fuel cards to learn more about how these cards work and to compare your options.
Giving fuel cards and vouchers as presents
Whether you're buying a fuel gift card to congratulate a loved one with a new driver's licence or as a thank you to a friend for giving you a lift, a fuel voucher can be a practical and convenient gift. You can use the cards to pay for fuel as well as other petrol station costs, including snacks at the checkout. This frees up someone's credit card or debit account and saves them time at the pump.
