What is GAP Insurance?

GAP Insurance, or guaranteed asset protection, shields you from financial loss if your vehicle is declared a write-off by your car insurer due to accidents, theft, or damage from events like floods or fires.

Typically, insurers will only pay you the value of the vehicle at the time of the incident, rather than what you originally paid. Because cars can depreciate approximately up to 60% in the first three years, that could mean a significant shortfall in finance settlement charges or a loss in vehicle value. MotorEasy’s GAP Insurance bridges the gap between your insurance payout and your vehicle’s purchase price or outstanding finance.

Additionally, MotorEasy offers various GAP Insurance options tailored to different needs, whether you've bought your vehicle on finance, lease or outright. Each policy is designed to be straightforward and provide comprehensive coverage, giving you peace of mind knowing that in the event of a total loss, the financial gap will be bridged effectively. This coverage is particularly valuable in the initial years of car ownership when depreciation is most pronounced and can significantly impact your financial stability in the wake of a vehicle loss.

Is GAP Insurance worth the money?

GAP insurance can be a valuable investment, particularly if you're concerned about the financial impact of your car being stolen or written off. It's crucial, though, to shop smartly, as dealer-sold GAP policies may cost up to three times more than those from independent providers like MotorEasy.

Following a 2015 FCA regulation, car dealers must observe a two-day cooling-off period before offering GAP insurance, although customers can waive this if they wish. When considering GAP insurance, pay close attention to the policy's scope, noting any limitations, exclusions, or potential excess charges, and don't hesitate to reach out to the seller to understand the finer details.
