The solution combines a contactless-enabled card with an award-winning mobile app by The Miles Consultancy. It can be used anywhere that Visa/Mastercard is accepted and allows seamless tracking of mileage, receipts and reports. The solution is currently available in 24 countries across the UK and Europe; the app can be downloaded from Google Play and the Apple App Store.
Trudy Curtis, EMEA Head of Commercial Cards at Citi Treasury and Trade Solutions, said: “Traditionally, company car drivers could only choose from closed-loop fuel networks, meaning that each fuel card could only be used with a single fuel brand. Our solution liberates them from the hassle of carrying multiple fuel cards, and in the process not only saving time and money but also reducing fuel consumption by avoiding unnecessary detours searching for a specific fuel pump.”

Paul Hollick, Managing Director at The Miles Consultancy, said: “We are delighted to partner with Citi to offer an international fuel card that provides complete visibility and control across multiple markets. The Citi Fleet Card eliminates manual and error-prone consolidation of expenses, leading to significant reporting gaps, reimbursement delays and fraud. “By leveraging our mobile app-based user interface, the Citi Fleet Card seamlessly enables receipt capture and automated mileage reconciliation.”
One of the first Citi clients to go live with the solution, was the UK Salon division of Kao EMEA.
Maria Yanev, Director, Total Reward Human Capital Development, EMEA, Kao, said: “2020 gave us the opportunity to look at a competitive and sustainable fuel card solution for our UK drivers from our European Beauty Salon division, with reliable everyday support and minimal administrative burden. The implementation of the change from our previous provider to the new Citi Fleet Card solution went really well and we felt supported throughout the process.”
