Dhs 2 fee to use credit card at petrol pumps

Service stations of Emirates General Petroleum Corporation (Emarat) in Dubai, Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) and Emirates Petroleum Products Company (Eppco) will start accepting Visa and MasterCard credit/debit cards for all transactions including fuel sales from Sunday, it was announced here on Saturday.

“While a service fee of Dh2 will be applicable for fuel sale transactions using the cards, all other credit/debit card purchases at the convenience stores and other services will not incur additional charges,” the oil retailing companies said in a joint statement.

Fuel distribution companies in the UAE stopped accepting credit/debit cards for fuel transactions in 2007.
“The resumption of the facility aims to enhance customer convenience while addressing the operational costs involved in providing credit/debit card payment facility,” the statement added.
