ŠKODA is introducing a unique and innovative bundle package to Irish motorists.

ŠKODA is introducing a unique and innovative bundle package to Irish motorists.

Based on a finance offer, customers can avail of two vehicles - a Citigo and a Rapid - with one simple monthly finance repayment of €248 per month which represents a saving of €890 in interest payments compared to purchasing the cars individually.

Personal Contract Plans (PCP) have been gaining traction in the Irish market in recent years and ŠKODA’s bundle offering is the first time a brand has provided 0% APR on a Personal Contract Plan.

By combining the popular ŠKODA Rapid and ŠKODA Citigo at a reduced combined rate, this offer is designed to appeal to two car families and according to TGI 2013, 44% of Irish motorists fall into this category (two car families*).

Separately, the Citigo and Rapid are offered at a competitive 1.9% APR. However, when the Citigo and Rapid are purchased together a reduced rate of 0% APR is applied leading to a minimum saving of €890 in interest payments.

The ‘Simply Clever Bundles’ will be offered alongside other special offers such as specification upgrades and free service plans on selected ŠKODA models during ŠKODA Open week from Tuesday, 29th October in dealers nationwide.

Announcing the offer, Raymond Leddy, ŠKODA Ireland Head of Marketing said “We are delighted to be able to offer this fantastic package. The Citigo is one of the best small cars on the market and the Rapid provides unrivalled passenger and luggage capacity in its class. We have listened to our customers and used this feedback to come up with an offer that will help motorists who want a second family car but with a competitive monthly repayment that won’t break the bank.”

The 0% PCP offer on bundles is available through ŠKODA Finance, a trading name of Volkswagen Bank Ireland, Europe’s biggest automotive finance provider. This provides Irish motorists with a very real and very competitive financial alternative to the traditional banking sector.
