FREE Rental Car (8 Great Reasons to Buy a New Car in Europe)

Ever since I heard about people picking up new cars from the factory in Europe (about 20 years ago), I thought that it may be the coolest thing ever. You watch your new car roll off the factory floor and be the first to drive it (except for a factory worker).

Plus you save money—on the car cost and what you would spend on a rental car or lease. I can give you all kinds of strategies and tips for cutting rental car rates but I cannot beat FREE. Best for me is that you drive your own car in Europe—for as long as you want (I suggest at least a month)—before taking it to a drop off point for delivery back home. Brilliant!

Well, don’t take my word for it. I talked to my friend Kelley about picking up her new Volvo wagon in Sweden, through the Volvo Overseas Delivery program.

Me? I certainly hope to do pick up my new car in Europe one day. Perhaps it will be a hydroelectric, no-oil burning, 4 wheel drive with great power and towing capacity. I think the European automakers are working on it!

Would you buy a new car in Europe?

  1. My sister and brother-in-law are driving the Volvo they happily flew to Sweden for a few years ago. They loved the adventure of it and are still quite smitten with the car.
