Supermarket fuel card provider fuelGenie has teamed up with RAC Business, to offer UK firms who are new to the RAC exclusive discount rates on their breakdown cover. The new partnership, which launches in August, will see small businesses able to save up to 15% on RAC Business Breakdown cover.
The new agreement will allow small and medium-sized businesses to choose between the following two offers; either 15% off RAC Business Breakdown cover or 10% off RAC Business Breakdown cover and Onward Travel.
The new RAC offers to mark the first stage in a number of new incentives set to be launched by fuelGenie in the coming months. All of the new fuelGenie added value services will be designed to help small businesses to both save money and reduce downtime.
The discount RAC Business Breakdown cover will offer customers all of the normal RAC benefits, as well as the peace-of-mind that they are covered, should the unexpected happen and they experience a breakdown. In addition, businesses will be able to take advantage of the RAC’s vehicle replacement Onward Travel option, including van-for-van and car-for-car, through the new scheme.
Robert Pieczka, Managing Director of fuelGenie, said: “As a brand fuelGenie continues to look at ways in which it can champion small businesses and help them to save money. The partnership with the RAC will not only allow us to help businesses to save on their breakdown cover but also potentially help to reduce any costly downtime should the unexpected happen. The RAC fixes 4 out of 5 vehicles at the roadside in just 30 minutes, which means customers can keep their businesses running smoothly.”
Phil Barwell, from RAC Business, adds: “At the RAC we have long campaigned for a better deal for businesses and motorists when it comes to the price of fuel and understand it’s a key cashflow concern for many small and medium-sized businesses.
“That’s why it makes complete sense for us to team up with fuelGenie in this way to ensure businesses not only get a great deal on fuel but also benefit from an exclusive discount rate for RAC Business Breakdown cover, to help keep them on the move.”
The fuelGenie Fuel Card provides business drivers with some of the UK’s lowest priced fuel at over 1,350 supermarket forecourts, including Tesco, Tesco Express, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Sainsbury’s Local. In fact, on average supermarket fuel stations can offer an average saving of over 3.4p*per litre at the pumps when compared to the national average. So by simply changing fuel suppliers businesses make a significant saving on their fuel costs.
fuelGenie does not charge fees or surcharges and offers unlimited free cards with no minimum monthly spend. The fuelGenie card can also be set up to only allow fuel purchases, however, this can be extended to enable card holders to also purchase oil and vehicle washes from supermarket forecourts as well.
