Passat Drivers Go Further As Volkswagen Teams Up With The AirMiles Travel Company

The Passat

While most customers expect their new cars to arrive with few or no miles on the clock, Volkswagen is offering Passat customers 2,500 AirMiles on all new models.

By teaming up with The AirMiles Travel Company, Volkswagen is giving all new Passat customers 2,500 free AirMiles – enough to fly a family of four to Nice, or fly a couple off for a romantic weekend in Budapest*. And as AirMiles can be used on a choice of 100 airlines, 25,000 hotels, on holidays and cruises, as well as on family days out, this offer provides an additional incentive for car buyers to opt for the Passat.

The AirMiles deal is open to all customers ordering a Passat Saloon or Estate between now and 30 September 2004. On delivery of the vehicle, the driver will be registered with The AirMiles Travel Company and an account will be set up in their name. AirMiles have no expiry date and can be used as full or part payment for anything from a weekend break in Paris to hiking the Inca Trail. A customer can also add to their balance by collecting additional AirMiles in a number of ways, for example, by spending on a NatWest credit card, filling up with fuel at Shell, or shopping at Tesco and House of Fraser.

Even before the launch of this offer, the Passat offered drivers a great deal, combining high specification, competitive pricing, high quality and kerb appeal.

In terms of specification, all Passats feature ABS and ESP (Electronic Stabilisation Programme), twin front and side airbags, plus a curtain airbag system, a CD player, Climatronic electronic climate control and remote central locking with alarm. The recently-launched Highline version which sits between SE and Sport adds over £1,825 worth of equipment, including full leather upholstery, a parking sensor and unique ‘Michigan’ 15" alloy wheels for a premium over SE of just £150.
