"Volvo buyers have long enjoyed our Overseas Delivery Program. Now, through the contest, we offer all potential customers an unforgettable experience unlike any in the car industry."

Volvo Overseas Delivery Program - How it Works


Through Volvo's Overseas Delivery Program, individuals guarantee themselves a free trip to Sweden with the purchase of a new Volvo car. Volvo provides two complimentary airline tickets to Gothenburg, where the customer picks 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.

  • 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. Enjoy two complimentary airline tickets to Gothenburg from Scandinavian Airlines.
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. 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.
