Supermarkets launch Bank Holiday fuel deals

Written by:
Sainsbury’s and Morrisons have both cut fuel prices ahead of the Bank holiday weekend, but you’ll have to spend in-store or online to get the discount.

Sainsbury’s has slashed 10p off a litre of petrol and diesel for customers who spend £60 or more on groceries in-store or on online between Wednesday 1st and Tuesday 7th May 2019.

They have 14 days to redeem the offer at one of 306 Sainsbury’s forecourts and will be able to collect Nectar points on every fill-up, with one point awarded for every litre purchased.

Online deliveries must be made by 7th May.

Meanwhile, Morrisons has knocked 5p-a-litre off the cost of diesel and unleaded when customers spend £40 in stores only until 6th May.

Customers will receive a voucher allowing them to pay the lower price until 12th May.

How to cut the cost of petrol

  • Do your research – lets you search for the cheapest fuel prices in your area.
  • Head to supermarkets for the best deals – “The age old myth of supermarket fuel being lower quality is not true, they all have to hit a very high standard to be sold in the UK so it will not damage the car, and they are often a few pence per litre cheaper,” says a spokesperson from
  • Avoid motorway service stations as they can charge up to 15p per litre more.
  • Try not to accelerate or brake sharply as this consumes more fuel.
