As we witness slow but steady rise in the oil prices as compared to lesser prices in last few years, majority of people living in India are bound to feel the pinch in their pockets. This sustained increase in fuel prices is slowly but surely eating away monthly budgets of those for whom buying a car is more of a necessity than a luxury. Though the average Indian has no control over the price of fuel, we can definitely benefit from lucrative offers on credit cards that provide discounts and cash back offers, especially when you purchase fuel using your credit card.
There are several credit cards in India having tie-ups with oil companies across the country and come as co-branded cards. Apart from those, there are also few other credit cards that offer you fuel rewards. Opting for these cards might make purchasing fuel slightly cheaper for you and reward you for making unavoidable fuel expenses in budget for your commuting purposes and weekend getaways.
