We have now been told that fuel cards will not be issued unless you are travelling in a service vehicle. Therefore if you are allocated a hire vehicle you have to fill it up yourself and claim it back. Personally i'm not particularly happy about it (having been stiffed along these lines in the past, ok it was a few years ago). If you're talking about one of the larger mini buses then you're looking at over Â£60.00 to fill it up, on a long journey you may have to do that twice! I'm sorry but Â£120.00 out of my sky rocket before i've even been paid a penny is a bit much. (I'd only be paid Â£80.00 for the weekend!) I know we can claim it back on JPA and the money should be in your bank within days etc but i'm still not convinced. Surely with the discounts that the MOD get on fuel this will cost them far to much money? Has anyone else heard of this?
