Also, when I went Volvo paid for the hotel in Goteborg for one night, I think they still do that but only if you stay in Goteborg.<P>I did, however, managed to get a good deal on my overseas delivery when Volvo launched the S60. They had a tie-in with AOL and offered some goodies if you bought the car before March 15th. I called and asked if overseas delivery was included in the deal. They said yes. (I did this 3 times) I ordered the car Nov 19th. Then on March 1st a month before my pickup in Goteborg they said Overseas delviery wasn't included in the AOL deal.<P>2 Days before I left to pick up the car I went to the Revovolution tour and met the Volvo North American Marketing Manager. I walked up to him and told him "I got a bone to pick with you!!" and once he learned I was buying an S60 and my wife had an S80 he said he'd talk with his office-mate who was in charge of the AOL promo. When I got back they'd agreed to give me the refund on the metallic paint & rear window sunshade & install the 10 disc CD changer & PC table that were offered by AOL.<P>WAY cool. But that AOL offer isn't valid anymore. <P>My advice is to try to get to Goteborg as cheap as you can and pocket as much of the $800 as you can.
Hi,<BR>We just ordered a 2002 S60 from TDS. The program has changed a bit-- they are now offering 2 free RT tickets! I was told that we could not pocket the $800 if we used our miles. They said the $800 had to be spent on airline tickets or on a travel package put together by the Volvo travel agency, good for travel only in Sweden. <P>I think we saved close to $4,000. We got a 2002 at 2001 prices--- paid $34,020 for a loaded T5. <P>Note, we did not get the upgraded stereo or the naviagation system.<P>Great deal!<BR>
Hey all,<P>Check out the new OSD article at Swedespeed! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><BR><B><A HREF="http://www.swedespeed.com/main_news/10_26_01.html" TARGET=_blank>Volvo Overseas Delivery Program</A></B><P>-Drew
Currently the OSD program includes 2$800 travel vouchers. This can be used for airfare and/or the Tour Scandanavia Program (driving tour). I am finalizing my trip and using some of the $$ for airfare and the rest for "hotels". The folks at Corpoarte travel in IL have been absolutely wonderful!!! In addition you still get the free night in Gothenberg.
