How to make the most of EOFY car deals

It’s that time of year folks when you can’t turn on the telly without being bombarded with EOFY deals on new cars. EOFY, for the chronically acronym-averse, stands for End Of Financial Year. May and June are party time for carmakers as they launch an advertising blitz to entice you to buy their latest models so they can hit their all-important sales targets.

They offer everything from discounts on the driveaway price to vehicles loaded with free extras, longer warranties and attractive deals on servicing. There’s no doubt about it, if you’re in the market for a new car it’s a great time to buy.

Saving money on the purchase price of that new car is an excellent idea and we’re all for it here at Fleetcare, but if there’s one thing wrong with those tempting deals it’s that once those saving are gone, they’re gone. As Porky Pig once remarked, “that’s all folks!”.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could save money on the purchase price of that car and then keep saving it week-in, week-out for the whole time you owned it? Well we think there’s a better way to buy a car, a way that will have you saving your hard-earned dollars each and every week of the year, rather than just once, when you buy it.

Save all year round

Unlike those dealers’ end of financial year deals, with Fleetcare’s EOFY deals on novated lease vehicles you’ll save money on the purchase price, then keep saving it on the total cost of owning and running it for as long as you keep it.

Fleetcare’s bulk buying power guarantees you get the lowest possible price on that new car. But that’s really just the start of it, because the payments on your novated lease come out of your pre-tax salary, rather than your salary after it’s been taxed. The effect of that is to reduce your income tax, leaving more money for you and less for the tax man each payday.

Better still you can bundle up all those optional extras you want in that new car and include them in those pre-tax payments as well. In fact the total cost of owning that vehicle – that’s registration, insurance, servicing, tyres and maintenance – everything, comes out of that single pre-tax payment.

Making life easier

But believe it or not, a novated lease isn’t just all about the money, though the savings certainly add up. A Fleetcare novated lease makes vehicle ownership easier, too. How? Well for starters running your household budget becomes a whole lot easier when you know exactly how much that vehicle is going to cost you to run week-in week out.

On top of that there’s that sense of security that comes with knowing that roadside assistance and accident management is always just a phone call away with your Fleetcare novated lease.

And that’s just a part of the personalised service you’ll be getting from Fleetcare. Whenever you need it you’ll get your own personal account manager to help with any queries, as well as online access (including mobile access) to your account. You’ll also get updates and reminders to make things nice and easy for you.

Sure, those one-off savings you’ll get from that end of financial year bargain will have you grinning as you drive that brand-new car out of the dealer’s yard. But it really can’t compare with the year-round satisfaction you’ll get by saving money each and every payday on that new car.
