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 as all 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.
This covers the difference between the cost of replacing your vehicle at current market value and what your motor insurer offers you to settle the claim. This cover is important if you received any form of discount when you purchased a new vehicle so that you can get like for like.
This covers the difference between the finance settlement agreement specially for contract/lease hire agreements and what your motor insurer offers you to settle the claim. You can also include the Initial Rental Protection (IRP) option which will cover the initial deposit paid.
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, vandalism, flood 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 cost to replace the vehicle on a like-for-like basis.
The outstanding lease settlement at the point of loss.
The outstanding lease settlement at point of loss and your Advanced Rental deposit (up to 6 payments)
