Skoda, the manufacturer of happy drivers, is helping customers to make one last journey in their qualifying ten-year old cars, with some of the most competitive offers in the industry. Skoda has confirmed its participation in the government's scrappage scheme. It might be an emotional journey to trade in an old car, but low on-the-road prices and very attractive finance offers on vehicles across the Skoda range will make it easier to say goodbye.

The Skoda Fabia, the country's favourite supermini, now starts at just £5,995 with the manufacturer topping up the government's £1,000 payment with a contribution of over £1,600. The Skoda Octavia, Skoda's award-winning mid-size family car, is now available from only £8,995, with the brand adding £1,545 to the government's £1,000.

All other models, including the award-winning flagship Skoda Superb and the popular Skoda Roomster, have £2,500 off, with £1,500 of that contributed by Skoda

Skoda's great range is available with an outstanding range of finance offers that have eye-catching monthly payments available through Skoda Finance Solutions at participating Skoda retailers:

Robert Hazelwood, Skoda's Brand Director, comments: "We are committed to maintaining Skoda's great reputation for providing excellent value. With our award-winning cars, personal service and affordable finance offers, we should be the first port of call for anyone looking to take advantage of the government's scrappage scheme, which is welcome news for the motor industry."

Jacqui Rowley, Skoda Finance Manager, comments: "These great finance offers are just right for many people who are considering a new car. They can get into a new Fabia for less than £15 per week. For instance, families who bought a second-hand car for their son or daughter can replace that car with a new Skoda and have the peace of mind of knowing that their loved ones are driving a safer, more economical and environmentally-friendly car."

To qualify for the scrappage scheme, cars being turned in must have been registered on or before 31st August 1999, must have a valid MOT and the driver applying to scrap the vehicle must have been its owner for at least 12 months.
