Fuel Cards - Stay Away from ComData

  • 1.  Fuel Cards - Stay Away from ComData

    Posted 7 days ago

    We have had the worst experience with ComData. Every month there are unexplained fees on the invoice, in addition we've been charged for interest and late fee payments, despite having ACH with them. They do deduct the money from the account automatically, however, they don't deduct the whole amount; therefore, causing late fees and interest charges. Every month, I am informed that I should see the credit in my next invoice and yet nothing happens & I have encountered additional unexplained fees.


    Planning to close the account AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Is there a fuel card program that you would recommend? We need fuel cards for each of the vehicles and need to have monthly reports for job costing purposes.


    Thank you in advance,

    Sorry to hear the problems you have had.


    We have used ComData for a long time and have not had the kind of issues you are describing.  Occasionally we there is an issue on an invoice, we contact our Service rep and normally corrected within 3 weeks or less.


    I would follow up with your relationship manager.  They can do better than you are experiencing.

    Sanam -  We use Enterprise for fleet management & WEX for our fleet gas cards.   We have been very pleased with both but do not get any rewards on the fuel card so will be looking at other card options in the near future.   Let me know if you would like any contact information.

    Wright Express (WEX) Fuel Cards. We had a similar experience with ComData. Rep made a whole lot of promises but came way short on delivery. Good luck!

    Be sure to have them refund the late fees on the late fees, as well. I had a similar issue with them last year, it took six months of calling every month and having the call escalated every time to finally get a refund and the account straight. We stopped using the account and found another fuel card that was less expensive with less fees and reports that were the same.

    Good luck!

    I hate to hear that you have had so much trouble with Comdata. It has been a great solution for us. Both the plastic cards as well as the virtual cards and the rebates have been better than anyone else has offered.

    I agreed we have not had a good experience with COMDATA at all.  We use WEX for fuel cards and they are terrific.
