The announcement means that the AS 24 card is now accepted in 28 countries across Europe. The Coral sites are located on main roads close to border crossings and to Greek ports making them ideally located for long-distance hauliers to fill up at the most advantageous prices.

The AS 24 logo appears on participating stations’ totems alongside the fuel price, making it easy for drivers to recognise where the card is accepted and the fuel price offered at the site.

When payments are made with an AS 24 card drivers and fleet managers are provided with a whole range of additional services that help to keep control of expenses. These include:  recording mileage and fuel usage, the ability to set payment limits, the payment of tolls and simple passage through toll plazas, automatic VAT recovery in any EU country, and the payment of fines thereby avoiding any risk of the vehicle being impounded.

Cards can be personalised for the driver or a specific vehicle.  It’s also possible to have dual cards: one allocated to the truck and one to the driver for use when multiple drivers operate the same vehicle. If a card is lost it can be instantly suspended. The AS 24 card is a unique management tool that helps operators to control expenses, reduce costs and manage their fleets more effectively.

Drivers should be aware that prices may differ from station to station and that there are special regulations for refuelling trucks in Greece.  Drivers are advised to visit the AS 24 website -www.as24.com - to familiarise themselves with the procedure before attempting to fill their tanks.

AS 24 is a subsidiary of French oil giant Total. This new development is part of the company’s continuing European expansion programme which includes the supply of AdBlue® and the provision of toll and VAT payment systems.
