How to pay vehicle expenses with a credit card

Buying a new car, van or truck is expensive. 

But that’s just the start, with all vehicles having a host of ongoing costs.

From servicing to new tyres and insurance to registration, the bills for vehicle expenses can sometimes feel never-ending.

For businesses with multiple vehicles, these costs are only amplified.

But what if you could earn credit card rewards points on all your ongoing vehicle expenses for your car, van or truck? 

With pay.com.au, you can.

Regardless of what types of payments your servicing provider, insurance provider, local tyre shop or state registration agency accept, you can pay for all your vehicle expenses using any credit card of your choice to rake in the rewards.

You can not only earn frequent flyer points, but by paying your utilities with a credit card you could also enjoy up to 55 days interest free on payments.

How can you pay for vehicle expenses with a credit card?

Many car, van and truck servicing shops will accept credit card payments, but they may not accept the card you want to use.

The same goes with tyre shops, state government registration agencies and insurance providers.

Some providers will only take VISA and Mastercard payments, but all seasoned points-collectors know that American Express is where the real travel rewards are. 

Regardless of how your vehicle expenses bills say you can pay, with pay.com.au you can make payment by any credit or charge card of your choosing. 

The process is simple: You make a payment at pay.com.au with any VISA, Mastercard or American Express card and we will pay your bill on your behalf.

The timing between a credit card payment made by you and receipt by the payee is typically only T+2 days. 

And by paying with a credit card, you could enjoy up to 55 days interest free on all your utilities bill payments, potentially helping with any short-term cash flow problems you might have.

How many points can you earn paying for vehicle expenses with a credit card?

This depends on the type of vehicle your business has, or how many vehicles you have in the case of larger businesses.

But either way, you could potentially earn thousands of credit card rewards points a year on your vehicle expenses. 

With the right business credit card you can earn up to 1.25 points per dollar spent when paid through pay.com.au
