Volkswagen simplifies its service plans

New age-based pricing offer replaces previous pricing system

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles has simplified its service plans for its van line up including the Caddy, Transporter Crafter, and California, with a new age-based offer starting from just £22.50 per month.

The new service plan structure means van owners can select the most suitable offer for their vehicle and businesses. Volkswagen says the two-year fixed plans are proving cheaper than pay-as-you-go alternatives and provide protection against inflation.

The service plans are split into two options, depending on the age of vehicle. Prices are standard across the model line up.

For those with a vehicle less than one year old, customers can either spread the cost of the first two annual services for £22.50 per month or pay £540 upfront. This service includes as standard an engine oil change, brake check, vehicle inspection, road test, vehicle software and diagnostic check, and pollen filter replacement.

For vehicles older than 12 months, the plan for the next two services (including an MOT test) is priced from £23.80 per month, or £571.20 upfront, including a 10% discount if purchased before May 31.

The service includes a complete vehicle check from wipers to brakes, suspensions to tyres, and drive belts to gearbox. Steering, airbags, exhaust system, and coolant levels are also included along with replacement air and pollen filters.

“We offer the same pricing across our diverse model range, meaning the only question for customers, is ‘how old is your vehicle?’,” said Tom Macintyre, brand manager at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Financial Services.

“This simplification is all part of our Working With You promise, which is aimed at reducing the stress and burden of vehicle ownership to allow customers to focus on their businesses.”
