Volvo On Call*

Volvo On Call (VOC)* is a supplementary service that you subscribe to as a customer. The subscription consists of safety, security and comfort services.

The VOC system is linked to the car's SRS and alarm systems. The car has a built-in GSM module for communication between the car and VOC's services. Map shows the countries where the system is available. Contact your Volvo dealer for current information, since the map may change. The subscription's services/offer are dependent on the market. Contact your Volvo dealer for information on which services are applicable in your country.


Once the remote control key has been removed from the car, the system's functions are available continuously for 5 days and then once per hour during the next three weeks. After three weeks the system will be deactivated until the car is started.

The system uses GPS (Global Positioning System) to locate the car and the car's built-in GSM module in order to contact the VOC Service Centre.


The system only works in areas where VOC's partners have GSM coverage and in the markets where the Volvo On Call service is available.

Just as with mobile phones, atmospheric disturbances or sparse transmitter coverage may lead to connection being impossible, e.g. in sparsely populated areas.


A subscription is initiated in connection with the purchase of the car when the system is activated. The subscription has a time limit but can be extended, and validity is market dependent.
