Gap insurance will protect you financially should your vehicle be written off. Your motor insurer will only pay you back the value of your vehicle at the time the vehicle is written off and, because most vehicles lose value, especially if they are new, this means the amount that your motor insurer will offer in settlement of the claim can leave you thousands of pounds out of pocket.
What Cover Do We Offer
All products are fully ABI compliant and relate to a financial loss as a result of the vehicle being a total write-off due to accident, fire or theft. Protect the difference between what the insurance company will pay for your vehicle and either:
The original invoice price you paid for the vehicle.
The amount owing on finance.
The outstanding lease settlement at the point of loss.
4. The outstanding lease settlement at point of loss and your Advanced Rental deposit (up to a maximum of £3,000).
