US Bank Partners with Mastercard to Launch New Payment Card for the Fleet Industry

U.S. Bank is partnering with Mastercard to offer the U.S. Bank Voyager Mastercard, which can be used for fleet-related expenses anywhere Voyager or Mastercard are accepted.

U.S. Bank currently offers the U.S. Bank Voyager Fleet Card, which can be used to pay for fuel, maintenance and other expenses at more than 320,000 locations across the U.S. using the proprietary Voyager Network. By joining forces with Mastercard, U.S. Bank will allow clients to pay for fleet-related expenses at existing Voyager merchant locations and any merchant location that accepts Mastercard. Now drivers can use one card to pay for a variety of other fleet-related purchases in addition to fuel and maintenance, including, but not limited to:

  • Fees for toll roads or parking
  • Fuel in Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories, Canada, Mexico and other international locations
  • Emergency tows or repairs
  • Infrequent, emergency or on-demand travel purchases (e.g., hotel, food)

The new payment solution allows fleets to tailor spend controls for individual drivers and vehicles while retaining visibility and oversight across the expanded purchase categories with enhanced travel benefits.

The U.S. Bank Voyager Mastercard also provides Mastercard services including MasterRental Insurance, purchase assurance, extended warranty and travel assistance through MasterAssist Services.

“The new U.S. Bank Voyager Mastercard is a game-changer for fleet managers and drivers,” Jeff Pape, senior vice president and director of product and marketing for transportation at U.S. Bank, said. “Having the capability to cover and control unexpected and planned purchases on two major networks delivers unprecedented flexibility to support fleet operations and productivity.”

“We are thrilled to partner with U.S. Bank to provide fleet managers and drivers a single card product that leverages our network to support day-to-day needs on and off the road,” Erika Gamboa, vice president of account management at Mastercard, said. “Together, we are able to provide an enhanced payment experience for fleet drivers with enhanced safety, security and travel benefits.”
