Comments (0) Theworld has become much smaller in recent years. The days when Europe was adistant destination are far behind us, and increasingly fleet drivers arefinding that they need to travel across international borders in order tocomplete their jobs and deliveries. One of the best things about fleet drivingin the UK is that fuel cards can be used to decreaseexpenses and streamline processes for both professional drivers and theirmanagers, but what about those who need to head to mainland Europe for theirdeliveries? Well, EDC fuel cards may well provide the solution that suchindividuals are looking for...

Inmost respects, EDC fuel cards are largely similar to their domestic cousins.Just like with regular petrol and diesel fuel cards, EDC fuel cards providefleet drivers and managers with a host of benefits designed to make their liveseasier and save the company money on fuel expenses. EDC fuel card customers canenjoy competitive wholesale fuel prices and expedient digital VAT reclaiming,helping them to save money over credit cards or other pay-and-reclaim paymentsolutions. Detailed fuel management data allows EDC fuel card customers toorganise their fleets and further reduce fuel consumption, while all fuel cardswill naturally result in a reduction in fleet driver dead management. Fuelcards like the EDC fuel card are far more secure than other fuel paymentsolutions too, as customers can protect their cards with pin numbers, registerthem to the number plates of particular vehicles and even restrict them tospecific fuel payment options.

Sofar, so familiar, you're probably thinking. However, while the EDC fuel cardpossesses the same attributes as other fuel cards on the market, it sets itselfapart from its rivals thanks to its remarkable usability. We've already talkedabout how globalisation is making the world smaller. Well, these days,companies here in the UK need to trade overseas if they're going to achievewidespread success and acclaim, and more often than not, this process begins inEurope. Countless UK-based companies deliver to customers, clients or otherbusinesses in mainland Europe – it's one of the only ways to pursue corporatesuccess in the 21st century. Fleets operating in Europe shouldn'thave to revert to pay-and-reclaim fuel payment solutions just because theiroverseas however, and this is an inequality that EDC fuel cards are beginningto address.

Ifyou need to operate a fleet both domestically in the UK and overseas in Europe,you'll want a fuel card that works just as conveniently in both territories –that's where the EDC fuel card comes in. EDC fuel cards are valid at sites in19 European countries, allowing customers to refuel wherever their Europeandelivery routes take them. All major trucking destinations are catered for bythe EDC fuel card, including popular countries like Ireland, France, Germany,Spain, Portugal, Italy and Sweden. If your deliveries are taking you far afieldthis year, EDC fuel cards will facilitate your diesel purchases acrosscontinental Europe.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that because EDC fuelcards cater for so many countries filling stations will be few and far betweeneither. The EDC fuel card allows customers to refuel from more than 3,000 sitesacross the UK and Europe – more than enough to cater for even the thirstiestfleets. EDC fuel cards even make reclaiming VAT in Europe a doddle – that's abenefit that fleet managers will certainly relish putting to good use! Last butnot least, the EDC fuel card provides further international convenience byallowing customers to pay invoices online using hassle-free E-billing.
