Heating oil is a flexible energy source, very available in terms of supply and excellent storage properties. An instalment plan allows customers to buy heating oil in large quantities when the prices are low, without tying up their liquid assets, and profit from quantity-based discounts.
TOTAL and its partner CommerzFinanz have now introduced a fair instalment payment plan for online and telephone heating oil purchases.

"We are delighted to have with TOTAL a first partner in the field of energy supply," said Gerd Hornbergs, Managing Director of Commerz Finanz. "With the short and clear online financing application of Commerz Finanz, TOTAL customers receive a simple, fast and above all reliable option for credit application. Within a few minutes the credit decision will be made online."

“The current annual interest rate of 4.9% means that the instalment plan is often a much cheaper alternative to a making use of an overdraft at the local bank” emphasises Nicola Bergau, manager of online trading at TOTAL Mineralöl GmbH.

Applying for the credit to buy heating oil online is really simple; all you need is a computer. The amount borrowed can range from 100 to 15,000 euros and the instalments can run for a period of 6, 12 or 18 months as required. Credit applications received by phone are processed by a TOTAL customer advisor. 

Our finance partners will provide you with more information about the process, requirements and the necessary documentation for the financing request when you make the application. TOTAL is also happy to answer any questions and provide information about the service provided by CommerzFinanz just ring the toll-free hotline on +49 800 – 00 868 25.
