Volvo Affinity Scheme

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I purchase a car outright?

Yes you can, and there is a discount available so you can buy a car and arrange your own finance.

Can I have a car on finance?

Yes, Hire Purchase and Personal Contract Purchase options are available. You can apply for any eligible model with low rate finance and an affordable deposit.

Do I have to buy one of the cars advertised?

The cars shown are for demonstration purposes to give you an idea of the great value for money models on offer. We can give you a quote for any model, with various terms and mileages.

I am a small business, can I contract hire?

Not with the Affinity Scheme, but Volvo Car Leasing offers very attractive rates for small businesses.

Will I pass the credit check?

This offer is subject to your being approved for credit. If not, the dealer may request that you pay a different initial rental payment.

What shall I do with my current car?

We cannot accept models as part exchange for a deposit, so you will need to sell your car privately or to a dealer. You can then use this money for the deposit on your new car.

What happens at the end of the contract?

Depending on which type of finance plan you are on, you may need to pay a lump sum. Either your model will become yours or you will hand the car back to the dealer, and this should be made clear when you first order the car.

What happens about extra costs like servicing?

Some offers include an option to purchase fixed price servicing for a particular period. Extras such as metallic paint are included as standard, with no extra charge. However, you will need to organise the road fund licence for the vehicle independently.

Can I choose the dealer?

You place your order with your chosen dealership directly, as long as they are in the network of participating dealers. They will ask you for proof of membership of the scheme.

What happens if I cease my membership?

To take advantage of this offer, you need to have been a member for at least six months. However, your finance then goes with you even if you leave the scheme.

Can I use these offers for a family member?

No, only the named member can use this offer.
