Client Spotlight: Christine Vye – Department of Health, Western Australia

One of the benefits of a novated lease is the flexibility you have at the end of your lease term. A popular option is to rollover your lease and enjoy an upgraded model!

Christine (Chris) Vye, a Clinical Nurse Manager at the WA Country Health Service, recently picked up a brand-new Audi Q2 SUV – her SIXTH novated lease with Fleet Network.

The reason for continuing onto her sixth lease? Pretty simple – a novated lease allows you to upgrade your car to suit your specific circumstances and needs at the end of each lease term.

“I continued my leases to suit my location at the time, as I’ve lived in fairly remote areas with limited access to technical services. I also like to have a new car at the end of each lease to reduce the possibility of mechanical problems” Chris explained.

Chris has been in her role at the WA Country Health Service for fourteen years. She describes the opportunities to travel across the most beautiful places in Western Australia as well as the people she has been privileged to work with and meet as the best parts of her job.

“I have met some amazing, interesting, incredibly skilled and caring people from all over the world. I love the exposure to Aboriginal culture that we get when we work in rural and remote healthcare” she says.

After rolling over five novated leases and now into her sixth, we asked Chris what she thought was the standout benefits of a novated lease were in comparison to a traditional car loan.

“Novated leasing is a no-brainer for me. The convenience of having your registration, insurance, servicing and fuel all included in one packaged repayment, and the taxation benefits. I have often recommended others to take up a novated lease and will continue to do so” she explained.

Previously owning an Audi and being a lover of beautiful and high performing cars, Chris couldn’t think of better car to choose this time around.

“I love the feel and drive of the Audi. It’s a great car for long road trips and I feel very safe” she says.

Chris’ rave review on the Audi extends to her experience at Fleet Network.

“Fleet Network have been very helpful in taking all the stress and hassle out of purchasing a new car, especially when living in a remote area. I just choose the car I want and everything else is taken care of!”

Chris also highlights the ‘fabulous and super friendly’ Fleet Network staff and how they have continued to provide excellent service over the course of her six leases.

“Everything is followed through; phone calls and emails are responded to very quickly. They have always gone that extra mile to get the best deal, or to assist me when I have had technical issues. It has been always a pleasure to deal with Fleet Network over the years” Chris says.
