Salary packaging a novated lease is a great way to get a new car, saving you plenty. But you have to check to make sure you're not getting any unwanted extras.

Some parts of the novated leasing industry are being drawn in to discussions about worthless* add-on insurance products, with allegations some of these products are being bundled with novated leases.

LeasePlan has never bundled these products with its novated leases.

A report by the Consumer Action Law Centre (CALC) concluded that most of the products being sold to customers were "rubbish".
