The military sales program is the brainchild of the United States government to help military personnel, both in active duty and retired, as well as diplomats and civilians DOD ID cardholders, enjoy benefits abroad while serving the country.
The program aims to help military personnel in purchasing cars while stationed abroad, particularly in Europe. Capitol Motors notes military sales programs in Germany include dealers like Volvo as well as other American and European made cars. Below are some of the things you can enjoy as a small token of appreciation for serving your country:
The difference when buying as a military personnel and as an ordinary civilian is the counseling program that dealers offer their customers. Financial counseling before, during, and after the purchase are offered to help military men with their purchase as well as the paperwork.
Fixed pricing wherever you are in the world is guaranteed. This protects purchasers from fluctuating currencies in their country of purchase. Also, prices in military sales program are lower than standards ones.
Enjoy a 4-year or 50,000-mile (whichever comes first) global warranty. This means your vehicle can be up for free servicing, shipping, or even replacement wherever you are in the world as long as you are transacting with authorized dealers.
Military sales programs offer tax-free vehicles, which makes it cost less than the standard price. However, it is important to talk with your dealer regarding transporting it to other countries where you will be stationed, as you might not be exempted from their tax laws.
