Petrosure Fuel Guarantee Insurance

The Fuel Guarantee Insurance basically means that the Fuel Retailer can use the insurance company as a guarantor when buying fuel.
Due to the nature of the fuel business and the high cost of holding stock, cash flow is one of the keys to the success of your business.

The business needs to generate enough revenue to meet daily, weekly and monthly expenses, and at the same time maintain stock levels to ensure uninterrupted trading in accordance with the fuel companies’ requirements. The retailer thus needs sufficient working capital to meet the demands of large fuel payments.

In order to do this, the retailer either takes out a large loan or provides an adequate overdraft facility. The need for a bank guarantee is over and above these requirements.

Without a guarantee, the retailer effectively trades on a ‘hard cash’ basis. Revenue needs to be in the account prior to payment for fuel, and delivery is only scheduled subsequent to payment. This working capital required is costly.

Note: Also refer to the Guidelines and Tips & Considerations applicable to Fuel Guarantee Insurance.
