It’s a great time to get a new VW as the brand is offering fantastic scrappage deals on trading in older vehicles.

Things are changing at Volkswagen, the iconic German brand. Long valued for its build quality and economy, the VW brand has been damaged by the diesel emissions scandal. Whilst the company is rapidly changing direction, it will no doubt retain its core values. The instantly recognisable VW camper has been reimagined as an all electric dream machine for 2022, whilst smaller vehicles like the electric e-up! are already on the roads.

In the meantime, any older diesel, whatever the make, can be traded in for higher standard vehicles from the range of Euro 6 petrol and diesel cars plus our class-leading range of plug-in hybrids and full electric cars and receive up to £6,000 discount.

If you go for the scheme, don’t forget to think about GAP insurance - and don’t forget to shop around.

Although VW dealers sell great cars, their GAP insurance is unlikely to match Direct Gap Insurance specialist gap insurance cover - especially as our prices are up to 75% cheaper than the dealers quotation.

As a specialist insurer we make sure our GAP insurance is tailored to our customers’ needs, whether you paid cash for your vehicle or use finance products like personal contract hire or a PCP. We are the largest independent provider of Gap Insurance products in the UK, solely offering top quality insurance, only dealing with major insurers which are fully FCA registered and covered by the Financial Services compensation scheme.
