GAP Insurance

Protecting your brand new investment

- Protects you against any financial shortfall should your vehicle be written off or stolen

- Removes any requirement to borrow money or use savings to replace your vehicle

- Returns you to the original position you were in before the date of loss

In most cases, from the moment a vehicle leaves the dealership, it will start to depreciate at a rate that is dependent upon how old it is, and how many miles it has clocked.

 

In the event that a vehicle is written off as a result of an accident, fire or theft, most insurers will only pay out the market value of the vehicle at the time of loss. This is often considerably less than its original value, and could mean that there is a shortfall on the outstanding finance, or the cost of replacing it with an equivalent vehicle.

 

Depending on how you choose to purchase or fund your vehicle, we offer a range of products to protect you and your vehicle:

This covers the difference between the amount your motor insurance company pays, and the amount required to settle your finance agreement. It will also cover any initial rentals and contribute towards your motor insurance excess.

Covers the difference between the amount your motor insurer company pays and the original invoice price of the vehicle, including manufacturer and dealer fitted accessories. In addition, it will also contribute towards a motor insurance excess.

VRI covers the difference between your motor insurers pay out and the cost of a new vehicle, despite any increases in cost as a result of model changes or inflation. Again, it will also contribute towards a motor insurance excess.

Key Benefits

will cover up to £250 of the excess for you

- A maximum benefit of either £10,000, £15,000 and £20,000 in the event
