Discover Volvo's Overseas Delivery Program and Enter to Win the Road Trip of a Lifetime at




ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (May 23, 2012) -- Volvo Cars of North America's (VCNA) Overseas Delivery Program, which offers car buyers the unforgettable experience of picking up their Volvo in Sweden while also saving money, has once again partnered with VisitSweden, Tourism in Skåne and the West Sweden Tourist Board for the fourth consecutive campaign.


The sweepstakes, open through August 15, offers two lucky people the chance to win a road trip of a lifetime and the opportunity to drive a Volvo through West Sweden and South Sweden (Skåne). The one week trip for two is complete with accommodations, meals, activities, flights provided by SAS Scandinavian Airlines and a Volvo to use during your adventure.


To win, visit and create your own ideal vacation itinerary to West Sweden and Skåne. Choose from a selection of adventures, attractions, restaurants and hotels, then add your selections to the interactive trip planner, invite along some friends and submit to be automatically entered in the sweepstakes.


"This campaign has become a yearly tradition," said Lotta Thiringer, U.S. Director of VisitSweden. "People love coming to the website for a chance to win this dream trip to West Sweden and Skåne. Sweden is such an accessible country and there is a plethora of historical sites, attractions, and beautiful countryside and seascapes to explore, much of it is best visited by car. We highlighted some of the great attractions, accommodations and restaurants on the website.  There really is no better or more authentic way to see Sweden then from the window of a Volvo!"


"Volvo cars were born in West Sweden, and are still firmly rooted in the city of Gothenburg, where most of the cars are still manufactured," said Anders Robertson, manager of VCNA's Overseas Delivery. "The campaign gives potential customers a chance to experience the place and culture where their car comes from; it's a very unique experience."


 Volvo Overseas Delivery Program - How it Works


Through Volvo's Overseas Delivery Program, participants guarantee themselves a free trip to Sweden by purchasing 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 when they're ready to return home, they can simply drop off the car and Volvo will ship it to the United States for free.


Take advantage of overseas delivery:

  • 1. Visit the nearest Volvo retailer to test drive and find your perfect Volvo.
  • 2. Order your Volvo through the Overseas Delivery Program at your local retailer.
  • 3. Enjoy two complimentary airline tickets to Gothenburg from SAS 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 (additional days can be added).
  • 5. Test your Volvo out on the roads of West Sweden, either with one of the program's spectacular themed tours or on your own. Then, all of Europe is your road.
  • 6. Drop off your Volvo in Gothenburg or an official drop-off location. Volvo will ship your car home and take care of all the problems that make importing a car difficult, from excise taxes to import duties.
