Lightbulb Has anyone heard of GAP Insurance

Hi Guys

I have bought a new car (not a scooby but a lovley little nippy ford!!), whilst collecting the sales man was pushing to sell GAP Insurance. Its an insurance package which guarantees that you get back the full price of the car should anything happening causing the car a total loss in 3 years.

You pay 400 and if you ever write the car off in the 3 years you get back the full purchase price.

Has anyone ever heard of this? Your thoughts would be very welcome please!!

GAP (Guaranteed Asset protection)

2 different types

back to finance and back to invoice

Cover starts from 195 for 3 years so it may be wise to shop around. 400 may be a good quote though

http://www.click4gap.co.uk/ just one link (there may be others)

If your car is written off, the insurance policy will pay out the value of the car, and so GAP insurance will pay out the remaining money owed on the finance

example

total finance: 9000
car value in event of right off 5000

when insurance pays, it will leave you 4000 owing for finance, GAP will cover this 4000

also check the max value of a claim if needed.

ie...9000 balance on finance
5000 value of car as total loss.

is 4000 within the max limit of the claim.


oh!! 400, barter with them they cost peanuts, you will get a deal out of them epecially as the end of their 1/4 is due.
i reckon you could get that for 300 if you smile nicely

it depends on the policy taken out

in short, GAP will cover the remaining finance after the value of the car has been paid for from normal insurance (fully comprehensive cover must be taken with cars on finance)
