GAP INSURANCE (Guaranteed Asset Protection)
If your vehicle is written off or stolen don’t pay the shortfall... walk away and lease again!
With insurance offers increasingly falling short of finance company settlement figures it has never been a more prudent time to consider guaranteed asset protection (GAP) cover on the vehicle you are leasing. Allowing you to walk away from the settlement figure presented by your finance house, should the vehicle in question be stolen and unrecovered or declared a total loss by your insurance company.
Market conditions, along with cars depreciating at a greater level than expected, mean that there is often a difference between what your insurance company will offer and the settlement figure on your finance agreement.
“The insurance company pays out £10,000. The finance company are owed £14,000 as the contract was terminated early with charges owed as per the agreement. The GAP insurance will cover the difference between the two of £4,000!”
With GAP Insurance they will pay the difference, up to a maximum of £10,000 between your insurance company payout and the amount you owe to the finance company.
