A premium fuel card for companies
The fact that the MAES Mobility Card is so much more than a fuel card does not mean that refueling is shifting to the background. On the contrary. Users of the card refuel always close – not only at MAES, but also at partners such as Esso and Texaco – and that at a nice discount throughout Belgium. The handy Milo app shows you at a glance how much you have already refueled this month, when your next invoice will arrive, and so on. Control your budget and the expenses per employee: check.
Pay parking and toll with the mobility card from MAES
Parking your car can be a hassle: you have to find a place (preferably in the neighborhood), you have to estimate how long you will leave your car there, wait in line at the ticket machine, … Unless you use the mobility card of MAES! With the corresponding Milo app you immediately see where the nearest parking space is, and you can pay with the MAES Mobility Card. Paying tolls is also a piece of cake.

Take public transport: train, tram, metro and bus
We live in a world that is constantly changing. And this includes a cocktail of mobility options, in which public transport occupies an increasingly important place. The MAES Mobility Card responds to this without increasing your administrative burden. Via the Milo app, you can buy with just a few taps train tickets from the NMBS, M-tickets or De Lijn subscriptions, but also make use of Brussels public transport. Discover how to get more out of public transport, without having to charge costs or keep receipts.
Shared mobility: car sharing, and much more with only one card
Shared-bikes, shared cars, shared scooters and even shared steps are on the rise. And that is not surprising, because such shared mobility options offer many advantages, from less traffic to cost savings and reduced environmental impact. With a MAES Mobility Card you also have one payment solution that you can use for Poppy, Velo Antwerp and Scooty.

Pay for electric charging at charging stations
With the MAES Mobility Card you can charge electrically throughout Europe. The Milo app shows where you will find the nearest charging stations, and you will pay for your charging session yourself with your mobility card. Again no more hassle with receipts, because all transactions for electrical charging are included on your MAES invoice.
Taxi, Uber or eCab?
Do not worry about the payment … Did you know that the MAES Mobility Card also serves as a taxi ticket? That’s handy. Because if you have to hurry to get to the airport on time or want to crash at a hotel bed at night, you can simply pay the taxi ride with the mobility card, without stressing expense reports or payment methods. International taxi services such as Uber and eCab are also included.
Travel internationally, but easily
A lot of organization comes to mind during a business trip. Flights and hotels must be booked, rental cars reserved, and so on. The MAES Mobility Card takes a big load off your shoulders, because all your bookings and payments are made via this one card and with one account. So you have everything at hand when you arrive abroad! The MAES Mobility Card and the Milo app work together with Brussels Airlines, KLM, AirFrance, but also with the NMBS, NL and DB Bahn, car rental companies Europcar and Davis, and with Booking.com.
Visa card, in the form of a MAES Mobility Card
Business costs naturally include more than refueling or parking. Maybe you regularly lunch with customers or you want to buy a promotional gift. Thanks to the MAES Mobility Card you do this without having to keep receipts and have to submit expense reports. After authorization by the employer, the mobility card serves as a payment card at all places that accept Visa.
Regular car washes
Make your car shine like new again? Throughout the Benelux, the Milo app helps you a hand by telling which car washes are on your route or are in your neighborhood. You can pay again with the MAES Mobility Card – at least, with every carwash that accepts Visa as a payment method. All carwash visits appear on one invoice, along with the other services that you or your employees used that month, such as refueling or tolls.
Tax benefit: easily recover foreign VAT
Not only domestic but also foreign tank, hotel or other costs are eligible for VAT reimbursement. And with the MAES Mobility Card, that recovery is in order in one-two-three. Thanks to the link with the VATit platforms, a VAT specialist with an extensive European network, the process is almost completely automatic. That saves you a lot of headaches, time and money.
Easily manage your mobility budget
To relieve the environment, more people and companies opt for sustainable means of transport such as a shared car or an electric bicycle. That is why the mobility budget was created, which should not be confused with the mobility allowance. The mobility budget is a sum that you as an employee can use to take a more efficient company car, but also to go to work with environmentally friendly mobility options – from a speedpedelec to the bus or tram. Of course you can easily manage all these options with your MAES mobility card.
Discover everything about the mobility budget here.
Please note: the mobility budget therefore differs from the mobility allowance. If you opt for the latter option, you permanently give up your company car and receive a sum of cash in exchange (the so-called “cash for car” system). We will further explain the mobility allowance here.
“Great stations, and always one around!”

What are the benefits of a MMC?
With an MMC you do full cost control regarding mobility. Everything is centralized on one invoice and therefore you no longer need to keep receipts (except for restaurant receipts). Belgian VAT can easily be recovered in this way. In a second phase, a mobility card can be used to allocate budgets to employees in the context of the cafeteria plan / mobility budget and flex plan.

Depending on individual needs, this certainly is a possibility. Are you only looking for a fuel card with which you can refuel budget-friendly? Then the MAES fuel card is the best option. Do you need more mobility options? Then remember that you enjoy the same conditions with the MMC as with our MAES fuel card
Where can I refuel with MMC in the BENELUX and the rest of EUROPA?

No that is not possible. You can pay toll with the MMC in Europe but for the kilometer toll in Belgium an OBU remains necessary.
I am a “private person”. Can I also request the MMC?
The card is only intended for the holders of a VAT or company/business number.
Which VAT can I recuperate?
Only Belgian VAT can be reclaimed. With regard to parking, all VAT will be clearly stated on the invoice. For street parking there is no VAT charge, but there is for parking behind a barrier. Regarding the recuperation of VAT on restaurant expenses, you must keep the receipts as drink and food have a separate rate and therefore only can be split up on the restaurant ticket.
What about foreign VAT?
For expenses abroad you will receive an invoice with foreign VAT, which you can not settle in Belgium.
You have two options there:
- Reclaim the foreign VAT yourself in the country concerned via Intervat / VatRefund;
- Or you can have this done by our partner VAT-IT. MAES negotiated a favorable rate with them (20% of the VAT amount on a no cure no pay basis) in order to reclaim your VAT. In that case, send an e-mail to [email protected] and they will contact you.
Will my card be replaced FREE in the event of loss, theft or damage?
No. If you lose your card or it is stolen, you should block the card via CARD STOP. New cards are delivered at the applicable rates.
Can I change my PIN code or take over the code from my existing (MAES) fuel card?
You can choose your PIN yourself when requesting the MMC via a Self Service Web application. This code can and may therefore be the same as that of a MAES fuel card.
Kan ik vignetten betalen (bvb. OosteCan I pay vignettes (eg Austria, Switzerland) with the MMC?rijk , Zwitserland) met de MMC?
