BP free fuel initiative for emergency service vehicles during the COVID-19 crisis
We are proud to be supporting BP with their free fuel initiative to help our emergency service vehicles during the COVID-19 crisis.
The initiative started from Saturday, 21st March 2020, and will stay in place until at least the end of April 2020.
Free fuel can be obtained at BP’s network of 1,200 fuel sites across the UK. This includes both BP-operated and dealer-operated sites.
The initiative applies to UK National Health Service (NHS) emergency ambulance services, NHS trust non-emergency vehicles as well as local police and fire authorities. These emergency services will be able to fill up their emergency vehicles without being charged for their fuel when using an Allstar fuel card.
