Shell are Welcome Break's fuel provider of choice, and were recently introduced to all Extra services, giving them a strong market position. Larger forecourts sell LPG supplied by Autogas a joint venture company with Calor Gas.

In 1966 Shell had taken an interest in operating what eventually became Burton-in-Kendal and Tebay services on their own.


The 'Select' (or 'Shell Select') brand is used for Shell's larger convenience stores at filling station forecourts (some smaller stations still use the old brand Shell Shop), selling various brands including own-brand Deli2Go products. Unlike BP no specific branded cafe has been created, although a deal with Costa Express has meant that they supply hot drinks at most forecourts.


Shell used to operate across the Republic of Ireland, but these forecourts were sold to Topaz following the controversy surrounding their involvement to and response to the Corrib gas controversy and Rossport protests.


Shell operate at all Extra services, some Roadchef services and some Welcome Break services. They are:

All MSA forecourts include Select branded stores and the Deli2go range unless stated below

All TRSA forecourts include Select branded stores and the Deli2go range unless stated otherwise
