Dream Car + Dream Vacation:

Discover Volvo's Overseas Delivery Program


For a Limited Time, Submit an Ideal Vacation at and Enter to Win a Trip for Two to Sweden


ROCKLEIGH, N.J.(July 20, 2009) ­­- For years, Volvo Cars of North America's (VCNA) Overseas Delivery Program has offered car buyers an unforgettable way to pick up their new vehicle, an opportunity to save money on their car and a free trip to Sweden. Today, VCNA along with Visit Sweden and the West Swedish Tourist Board launched to offer visitors a new chance to win a dream trip for two to West Sweden.


From July 20 through September 1, visitors who register on the site can create an ideal Swedish travel itinerary with the online trip planner, and will be entered for a chance to win the submitted itinerary, which includes one week of hotel stays, flights for two and use of a Volvo car for an unforgettable experience.


Through the Overseas Delivery Program, visitors can guarantee themselves a free trip to Sweden with the purchase of a new Volvo car. Volvo will provide two complimentary airline tickets to Gothenburg, Sweden, where the customer will pick up their new car directly from the Volvo factory. Then, they can head out on a European road trip and simply drop off the car and Volvo will ship it to the United States for free.

Volvo Overseas Delivery Program - How it Works

  • 1. Visit your nearest Volvo retailer to test drive and find your perfect Volvo.
  • 2. Order the Volvo of your choice through the Overseas Delivery Program from your local retailer.
  • 3. Pick up your new Volvo at the Gothenburg Factory Delivery Center. Your new car will be registered for your stay in Europe with insurance for 15 days and the protection of the Volvo On Call Service.
  • 4. Test your Volvo out on the roads of West Sweden, either with one of the program's spectacular tours or on your own. Then head anywhere you please in Europe.
  • 5. Drop off your Volvo in Gothenburg or any official drop-off location. Volvo will ship it to you and take care of all the problems that make importing a car difficult, from excise taxes to import duties.


"We want to offer our customers an unforgettable experience of picking up their new car at the Volvo factory, while having the trip of a lifetime in picturesque West Sweden," said Anders Robertson, Manager, Overseas Delivery, Volvo Cars of North America. "The memories and experience our customers take home with them is unlike anything else in the car industry."


"Participants don't have to worry about a thing while they're on their trip, or after they return. Volvo arranges free airline tickets, the first hotel night, car insurance with on-call service during the trip, and provides complimentary shipping including U.S. Customs Duty, port clearance fees and inland transportation to your local U.S. Volvo retailer," continued Robertson.
