When you think about Sweden, Volvo is probably one of the first words that come to mind — after perhaps meatballs, Ikea and ABBA. So if you’ve decided to purchase a new Volvo, what better way to take delivery of it than at its “home” in Gothenburg, Sweden? Volvo Overseas Delivery is a great program that allows you to explore Scandinavia and Europe in your very own brand new wheels, then have it shipped to your home in the States. They'll even pay for your roundtrip airline tickets to Sweden with no added cost over your new Volvo’s MSRP — in fact, there is even a discount of up to eight per cent when selecting Overseas Delivery.

The program includes the following:

• Order your custom Volvo at any dealer in the country and specify Overseas Delivery
• Two complimentary round-trip tickets on Scandinavian Airlines are included
• One free night in a first-class hotel in Gothenburg
• A tour of the Volvo factory, a visit to the Volvo Cars Brand Experience Center or a visit to the Volvo Museum
• VIP delivery service of your new car
• Optional delivery in one of thirteen other European cities
• Fifteen-day European car insurance and temporary Swedish registration
• Complimentary car shipment to the United States from Gothenburg valid for two to six months. Cars can be dropped off at one of twently other Home Shipment Agents across Europe for an additional charge.
• U.S. Customs Duty and other fees are included in the purchase price

If you’re planning on buying a Volvo, Overseas Delivery is not only a great way to experience your new S60 or C30, but also a once-in-a-lifetime way of exploring Europe at your own pace and in your own car.
