Get a Free Vacation When Buying a Luxury Car

September 2, 2010

European Delivery ProgramImagine picking up your new European luxury car at the factory where it was made, then driving away on an extended vacation � all at the expense of the car maker.

Several major automakers have European vehicle delivery programs that allow you to pick up and drive your new car in the country of its birth for no more than if paying for the car here at home.

The European vehicle delivery programs offered by Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo offer a discounted vehicle price combined with free or highly discounted travel fares.

A typical program flies you and a guest to Europe, where you'll stay for one night at a five-star hotel. The next day, you'll take delivery of your car and receive a VIP tour at the factory. Take the car out for an extended spin, then drop it off back at the factory or at a dealer. From there, your vehicle will be shipped to the U.S., arriving several weeks later.

Or you can opt for lengthier European vacations offered by automakers for an extra (though steeply discounted) cost, choosing from a variety of planned scenic and historical road trips, or customizing your own.

Once your adventure comes to a close, leave your car at one of many locations in the host country (or across Europe, depending on the program) and fly back home, courtesy of the automaker.

This is an awesome program that you should seriously consider taking advantage of if you were already planning on vacationing in Europe.

    My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

    TrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

    California Residents - Important:

    There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
