Vauxhall Partners Terms and Conditions
To qualify for the Vauxhall Partners offers, you must be aged 17 and over with a full UK drivers licence . You must also satisfy the additional criteria for Vauxhall Partners offers, as explained in this section, which may be amended from time to time by Vauxhall Motors Limited (“Vauxhall”).
Categories of Vauxhall Partners:
Vauxhall Employee Partners: this category includes all employees of Vauxhall, IBC Vehicles Ltd, Vauxhall Finance Plc or a non-Vauxhall employee working at an eligible Vauxhall UK site and certain categories of pensioner and their eligible nominees.
Vauxhall Retailer Partners: this category includes all employees of the Vauxhall Retail Network (including Groups). The account of a Vauxhall Retailer Partner will be audited on a regular basis to ensure they continue to be eligible for the Vauxhall Retailer Partners offer.
Vauxhall Associate Partners: this category includes all employees/members of selected companies/organisations.
If you retain a Vauxhall pension after you have left employment at Vauxhall, you will remain eligible for Vauxhall Partners and will be classed as a deferred pensioner. If you withdraw from the Vauxhall pension at any point after leaving you will no longer qualify.
You will only remain a member of Vauxhall Partners for as long as your company/organisation remains affiliated. [Vauxhall Motors Limited is not reliable for notifying you when your company/organisation is no longer affiliated]. Existing agreements will not be terminated should your affiliation cease.
Should the affiliation be terminated between Vauxhall Partners and your company/organisation, you and your eligible nominees may be removed from Vauxhall Partners; you will be advised as to when this will take effect. If you leave the company/organisation, you and your eligible nominated relatives will no longer be eligible for Vauxhall Partners. Qualification does not automatically pass to a deceased member's relatives or nominated members.
Deceased pensioners - your family and friends, where applicable, may continue to be eligible nominated members of Vauxhall Partners so long as the surviving spouse continues to claim the deceased’s Vauxhall pension.
Unless you are registered to Vauxhall Partners, have supplied and had approval from the Partners Administration in proving your eligibility, you will not be entitled to any specific Vauxhall Partners offers. It is the responsibility of the original Employee/Retailer/Associate Partner to demonstrate that all criteria have been satisfied and not the responsibility of Vauxhall Motors Limited, SMH Fleet Solutions Ltd or the Vauxhall Retailer.
