Checkatrade can save you up to £160 a year on fuel

There's more to a Checkatrade membership than getting work from being listed on the UK's leading trade directory. There are exclusive discounts and freebies that you can't find anywhere else. Like a FREE Esso fuel card!

If you like the sound of saving money (I mean, who doesn’t?), you’re in the right place. Because Checkatrade members have access to a range of exclusive money-saving discounts and offers with our carefully selected partners.

Get a FREE Esso Card (worth £48) and save money on fuel with WEX Europe Services

It’s pretty likely that you’ll rely heavily on your work vehicle. And fuel is probably the main culprit in your outgoings. So the free fuel card is a great way to bring this down.

  • When you join Checkatrade, you’ll receive a FREE Esso Card™ fuel card (normally £48 per card, per year)
  • You’ll also save on average 5P PER LITRE* off pump price, saving you up to £160 a year on fuel with just one van!

That’s some nice savings right there for Checkatrade tradespeople – and you could be as smug as them at the pump with your Esso fuel card.

About The Esso Card™ fuel card

WEX Europe Services, the owner of the Esso Card™ fuel card portfolio, is one of Europe’s largest providers of fuel cards. A fuel card is a really convenient way to pay for your (discounted!) fuel at a filling station, without the need for cash or a bank card.

Whether you need a fuel card just for you, or for your company fleet, it carries a multitude of additional benefits.

  • Access more than 3,500 fuel stations across the UK with Esso Card™, meaning you won’t need to make long and costly route deviations to refuel.
  • Receive HMRC-compliant invoices and up-to-the-minute reporting for month-end accounting, saving you arduous admin time.
  • Fuel cards help to improve your company’s cash flow, as you’re not constantly reimbursing fuel costs.
  • Track the level of fuel used by specific drivers, vehicles, or cards.
  • Control your costs by specifying which fuel and products can be bought on each card.
  • Protect your business with security features that flag up any usual activity on your account.

The benefits don’t stop at fuel savings

  • We’ll give you marketing materials and van vinyls to prominently align your business with our trusted tick, giving your business instant credibility.
  • You’ll have access to our newly revamped app, where you can showcase your business and its services to its full potential. Get seen, and stand out!
