Being a safety card, there is no need to carry huge sums of money. It has a secret pin code only known to the user and if stolen, it is not possible to reuse the card anywhere.
Lastly, as a convenient card, it is easy to carry in a wallet and can be used at any Total service stations.
Using the Tomcard means reduced paper work like writing fuel vouchers.
Ultimately, the Tomcard is an ideal and convenient tool for individuals and companies.
