Enjoy the Trip of a Lifetime with the Overseas Delivery Program through Volvo Cars of Virginia Beach

Volvo's Overseas Delivery program has delivered a world-class experience for over 50 years, and for tens of thousands of people. This program provides a unique way to custom order a new Volvo, sometimes with options and colors not available in the US. We fly you and a guest to Sweden to pick up your Volvo at our Factory Delivery Center. You can choose to take a factory tour and see how your Volvo is built, or you may choose to visit our Brand Experience Center to learn how and why Volvo is dedicated to producing the safest cars in the world. Volvo's Overseas Delivery program allows you to explore Sweden and Europe on your terms, while driving your new Volvo. While driving through the inspiring Swedish landscape, you will experience firsthand what has inspired our designers since 1927. It's time to pack your bags and begin the journey of a lifetime!

Why It Pays to Meet Your Car in Sweden

Since 1954, Volvo has offered this program to U.S. customers. The reason? "The Overseas Delivery program has always been an excellent way for new customers and current Volvo enthusiasts to be part of a unique brand experience," says Martin Hansson, senior manager of retail programs with Volvo Car USA. "For many, the Overseas program has turned them into lifelong Volvo customers, as we see people going to Sweden for the third or fourth time to pick up their new vehicle."

And there's good reason for that, as the program offers numerous perks, which may be why Volvo delivers between 1,000 and 1,500 cars yearly through this program. For starters, you get roundtrip airfare for two (plus airport lounge access if you fly with one of Volvo's partner airlines) to Volvo's factory location in Gothenburg, Sweden. Once you land in Sweden, you'll be picked up at the airport and taken to your hotel. The program covers two nights there.

On the first morning, you'll be driven to Volvo's Factory Delivery Center, where your experience will include a Swedish lunch, a tour of the factory, and a visit to the Volvo Museum. Then it's time to greet your car, and once you've taken delivery of your vehicle, you simply drive it off the lot and start your explorations. Volvo gives you a temporary European vehicle registration and insurance coverage for 14 days, but you can extend it for an additional cost.

When you're ready to return home, just drop your car off at one of several designated spots. Gothenburg is one, and there's no additional fee if you choose this location. Or, for an additional charge, you can choose from 13 locations in other countries. Then depending on which North American port your car is being shipped to, your car will arrive at the Volvo dealer where you bought it six to 13 weeks later.

You should know another thing: Volvo also offers Overseas Delivery customers additional travel experiences through its travel agency. There are currently four trip options, most of which are in Sweden, with set itineraries. You'll have to pay extra for them, but they offer a convenient, hassle-free way to tack on more travel.

How the Program Works

No doubt you're wondering what the catch is. The surprise? There isn't one, as the price of the car doesn't increase with this program. The MSRP is the same whether you pick up your car in Virginia Beach, VA or Gothenburg, Sweden. The main difference is how long you'll wait for your new Volvo. If you need the car immediately, this program probably won't work for you, but if you can wait several weeks, it's worth checking into.

The procedure works almost no different than any other car purchase. You visit a Volvo dealership and order the car you want, placing a deposit with your order. The one caveat? This program is valid only for select models. After you've confirmed your car, you work with Volvo to set up your trip, determining when you want to pick up your car in Gothenburg, where and when you'll be dropping your car off, and if you wish to take advantage of the add-on travel experience.
