  • Your tax deductions for work travel allowances (at the rate of 3.29 per km travelled)
  • The many free ways to have fun: e.g join a Park Run SA on Saturday morning – it’s also safer than a lonely jog
  • Roadside assistance services will deliver a small amount of petrol when needed to allow you to get to a service station to fill up. This can be tacked onto your car insurance policy.
  • VoIP services and data-only bundles that offer a very inexpensive way to make calls (think Skype and Whatsapp calls that use only data)
