Mind the gap with GAP insurance
No-one likes to think about the possibility of an accident, and the idea of a write-off is even worse. But things happen in life, and being prepared is a great way to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety. With our GAP and Combined GAP and RTI insurance policies, you can rest assured that you’ll be protected when you need to be.
GAP is an acronym for Guaranteed Asset Protection, and the basic GAP insurance covers you if you buy a vehicle on finance or a lease agreement. It’s an insurance policy that sits atop your standard vehicle insurance to ensure that you have a better level of protection should a write-off occur. If you buy outright, don’t worry; there’s a policy for you too: Combined GAP and RTI insurance. Both of these policies could cover the gap left between what you need and what your insurer pays out after a write-off from an accident, fire, or theft, either to help make sure that you get the money to pay off what you owe or to get moving again.
