VWFS DRIVE LAUNCHES ONLINE FINANCE APPLICATION FOR ŠKODA CARS

If you’re looking to drive a ŠKODA on Personal Contract Hire (PCH), which you may know as a lease agreement, then we have some great news to share. That’s because VWFS DRIVE has launched an online finance application exclusively for ŠKODA cars.

The new functionality went live in March and now means that customers wanting to drive a ŠKODA on Personal Contract Hire (PCH) can apply for Finance and Credit Check for available stock vehicles, from any device, anywhere, on VWFS DRIVE. The new proposition also means that ŠKODA customers can view options at their own leisure before being introduced to a retailer for contract signing and fulfilment of their vehicle. This in turn will give prospective customers more choice and flexibility when considering their finance options through VWFS DRIVE.

 

What is VWFS DRIVE?

VWFS DRIVE is the service that provides access to a range of competitively priced stock vehicles online across the Volkswagen Group brands, including Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, thanks to a quick and easy online process. All the cars are leased from available stock meaning no waiting around for factory lead times.

Buyers can choose their preferred choice of new car or van from the extensive range by going online and visiting drive.vwfs.co.uk. Once they’ve chosen their vehicle, they can obtain a personalised quote. The order is then placed and the owner can select a local franchised Volkswagen Group retailer from which to collect their new vehicle – all within 30 days.

What are the experts saying?

“Lockdown has given many people time to reassess their lifestyle choices, including how we finance our cars, and there has certainly been a shift towards digital technology over the past 12 months. That’s why we’re really excited about the new proposition on VWFS DRIVE for ŠKODA customers. First and foremost it will undoubtedly support our customers, but it will also be a key factor in helping us move towards a more digitally focused operation.”

Charlotte Cheeseman, Head of Marketing at VWFS UK

“VWFS DRIVE is an exciting addition to the range of options we provide to connect buyers with the cars of their dreams. It makes use of the speed and access provided by online platforms so that consumers can make their car choices at a time and place that is convenient to them. All the available vehicles come directly from trusted brands within the Volkswagen Group, are competitively priced and, best of all, can be in the hands of a new owner within 30 days. VWFS is continually seeking to provide new and innovative ways to support consumers on their car buying journey and the online experience is a familiar one for many. VWFS DRIVE is another example of that support in action enabling consumers to quickly find the vehicle they want, arrange finance without any delay and collect the new car from a retailer of their choice within a month of starting the process. Essentially find it and drive it!”
