Fuel Surcharge FAQs

Our FAQs section below provides answers to our most frequent questions, however if you still have questions, please feel free to contact us.

UK SameDay fuel surcharge FAQs

We have introduced a variable fuel surcharge for our same day services in line with our UK Overnight and International services.

As this is a variable fuel surcharge, the Fuel Surcharge % can go down as well as up. Therefore should fuel prices decrease, the Fuel Surcharge % will also decrease in line with the scale shown.

CitySprint have always done everything possible to give you great value for money. To date, we've held off implementing a fuel surcharge, even when our competitors have. But now, because of persistent pressure on our courier fuel costs, we now need to implement this.

The Fuel Surcharge will be passed on directly to the couriers to assist them with current fuel costs.

The SameDay Courier Service is already a premium service and as such the surcharge will always be less than the UK Overnight surcharge. However both will always reference the same fuel prices.

Yes, from March 1st 2013, prices quoted at the point of booking will be inclusive of the fuel surcharge. However, as the fuel surcharge is variable month on month, pricelists and tariffs will not include it.

UK Overnight fuel surcharge FAQs

Due to continuing fluctuations in fuel prices we are implementing index-linked fuel supplements to ensure that we only pass on the charges that are in line with the movements of the National & International fuel prices. Our aim is to keep the supplements fair and transparent. Our fuel supplements will rise, fall or be removed in line with the movements in fuel prices.

We have chosen to use two index-linked fuel supplements, one for each service.

Our UK Overnight fuel supplement is priced on the European Commission Directorate General for Energy and Transport reported price for 1000 litres of automotive diesel.
