There are fast bikes, then there are faster cars. But do you know what’s the fastest? The rate at which fuel prices in India are going up. If you own a vehicle in times like these, you’ll be shelling quite a bit at the petrol bunks.

Fuel credit cards are designed by banks to give you the best benefits for refueling your vehicle. Perks include fuel surcharge waiver, reward point collection, and so on. Why spend on fuel when you can use your fuel credit card to spend and earn!

Let’s talk about the top 3 fuel credit cards that you can choose from:

  • BPCL SBI Card
  • Indian Oil Axis Bank Credit Card
  • Citibank Indian Oil Credit card


Annual Fee – Rs.499 + GST

When you refill your vehicle at a petrol pump and pay using the BPCL SBI Card, you can enjoy value back worth 4.25%. This is equal to 13X reward points on fuel refills. Along with this, you also get a fuel surcharge waiver of 1% for transactions up to Rs.4,000.

Once you have paid the joining fee of Rs.499, you’ll get 2,000 activation bonus points added to your card. This is equivalent to Rs.500 which will get credited to your card after 20 days of paying the joining fee.
