GAP Insurance (Asset Protection)
GAP Insurance can reinforce your own vehicle insurance and may provide the reassurance and financial support you need to get you back on the road.
How does it work? If there is an incident that results in your vehicle being written off by accident, fire or theft; the payout from your motor insurer may be considerably less than the outstanding balance you owe to the finance provider.
Most motor insurance companies use the market value of the vehicle on the day of the claim to determine the payout amount, any depreciation of the vehicle would be a loss incurred by you. This could leave you without a vehicle plus the responsibility of settling any outstanding finance or lease balance.
In the event of a total write off of the vehicle, GAP Insurance would pay a maximum benefit equal to the discrepancy between your insurance payout and the original purchase price of the vehicle, or if greater and on all lease policies, the amount you require to pay your early settlement amount. This insurance will also pay the excess deducted by your motor insurer.*
