What is Simples?

Simples is a fuel app that helps Aussies compare fuel prices. Available through Google Play™ and the App Store®, you can find petrol and gas prices in your area or numerous locations around Australia.

However, with many petrol price apps on the market, we want to offer you more than just fuel price comparisons. You can also use Simples to get a quote for an array of insurance products we offer, and we’ll be on hand to guide you through our comparison services.

See the Terms and Conditions.

How does Simples let me compare fuel prices near me?

Simples is easy to use and there are various ways to find a petrol station nearby – no matter where you are in Australia. Either type your suburb or postcode or search for a larger area using the app’s fuel map. From here, Simples will display service stations in your proximity, along with the types of fuel available and price.

If you’re in an unfamiliar area, the fuel app can also help with directions!

Can I find affordable fuel on the road using the app?

You sure can! If you’re already on the road and need to find a service station quick, Simples allows you to enter your destination and will display fuel prices along your route from within the app! You can even add favourites for quick access to your regular routes.

Is it easy to customise my options so I find exactly what I’m after?

We understand your vehicle has specific requirements and you may prefer to fill up at certain locations, which is why you can easily customise your search results at any time. Filter everything from fuel type and brand to make finding cheaper petrol ‘Simples’!

How else can I save by using Simples?

Why stop at fuel? Simples is so much more than a fuel watch app. Get easy quotes for a range of other services within a few taps. Whether you’re looking for assistance with insurance, trying to save on energy or want to compare your banking or health options, we’re here to help you compare.

More frequently asked questions

Which types of petrol can I compare on the fuel app?

Whether you drive around in a truck or get from point A to B in a smaller car, rest assured that you can compare many different types of fuel within the Simples app. These include:

How much does it cost to see fuel prices near me on the Simples app?

Nothing! Simples is 100% free to use. We don’t charge you to use a service that’s intended to save you money.

Does Simples compare petrol prices from every service station in Australia?

While Simples only allows you to compare petrol prices from individual service stations that have options to participate or from stations where prices are collected, the app does allow you to step up favourite routes so you can still find better fuel prices for the journeys you use most. The stations displayed, as well as the type of fuel listed, may not include every single option which might be in your local area. Still, you’ll easily be able to see the options from participating stations on one screen and decide which is best for you.

Where in Australia can I find petrol prices near me?

Simples allows you to compare costs across all corners of Australia, including:

  • New South Wales (NSW)
  • Queensland (QLD)
  • South Australia (SA)
  • Tasmania (TAS)
  • Victoria (VIC)*
  • Western Australia (WA)
  • The ACT
  • Northern Territory (NT).

Please note that participating service stations can vary based on your specific location.

*In Victoria, there is no requirement for fuel stations to report their pricing data. This impacts the accuracy of the information we can provide you through our app. Pricing information in Victoria is a guide only, so you may notice discrepancies occasionally.

How regularly are fuel prices updated within the app?

Our fuel prices within the Simples app are provided by The Pricing Project and are updated regularly. Due to the costs of fuel changing regularly and accuracy of pricing information varying between locations, we always recommend confirming the price with service stations in your area before filling up. In regional areas, where regular price comparisons for individual participating service stations aren’t available, an average fuel price from the previous day or previous week may be used.

Does Compare the Market get paid if I purchase fuel after using the app?

No, we don’t receive a fee or commission if you use our app to help to secure cheaper fuel. It’s entirely up to you where you choose to fill up – we’re just here to make the process as easy as possible.
