5 European Auto Delivery Programs
Here's how it works: Order your car at the dealer three or four months before you'd like to pick it up. Then plan your vacation -- you can fly into the city where you pick up the vehicle, or you can choose another destination and get to your pickup point on your own. When you arrive, you'll be taken from the airport to a hotel, where you'll be treated to a complimentary night's stay. The next day, you'll visit the delivery center to get your car and take a tour of the factory and the automaker's museum.
After you grab your car, hit the road for your vacation -- you'll be provided with two weeks of car insurance (but you can pay extra for longer stays) and a tourist registration. When you're done, drop off the car at one of several designated locations and it'll be shipped back to the U.S. It takes about two months to ship the car Stateside.
