RTI Gap Insurance

All you need to know about RTI GAP
RTI Gap in brief

Great cover for both New and Used cars

Click4Gap RTI is available whether you borrowed money from a bank or Motor Loan or paid cash, or even chose Contract Hire or a Leasing agreement.

Added Protection

If your car was paid for using a bank or finance house loan or simply paid cash or if you are leasing a car, RTI GAP insurance protects you against depreciation if your car's stolen and not recovered or damaged beyond economical or safe repair and your motor insurer declares it to be a total loss.

Get back the purchase value not just the loss value

If your motor insurer declares your car to be a "total loss" through accident, vandalism or theft, it's really important to understand that they typically only pay the loss value, the value of the car on the date it was declared a total loss not the invoice price (purchase value), what it was worth when you purchased GAP.

Now the good news! If this happens a Click4Gap Return to Invoice Gap Insurance policy will pay the discrepancy between the invoice price (purchase value) and the car's loss value... it's that simple!

To make certain the benefit due to you is fairly and independently calculated, like all responsible insurers Click4Gap uses the independent third party valuation of Glass's for correct purchase and loss valuations. Glass's Guide has been the motor and insurance industries principle car valuation service for almost 75 years. Like all responsible Gap providers, should the purchase value or loss be called into question, we would refer to the Glass's retail value.

Why do I need Return to Invoice Gap Insurance?

In the UK car crime is one third of all crime, with a vehicle being stolen every minute with a third never being recovered. A sad fact is that more than 500,000 vehicles are declared a total loss each year.

  • Motor Insurance settles the depreciated value, not the full purchase value.
  • From the moment you start driving your car its value is depreciating.
  • Insurance Companies can depreciate cars by up to 60% over a period of three years.
  • A car is stolen every minute of the day in the UK.
  • Each year over 500,000 vehicles are declared a total loss.
  • You pay the deprecation, not your motor insurer.
We Pay For What Your Insurance Company Does Not

If your motor insurer declares your car to be a "total loss" through accident, theft or vandalism, they will typically pay you the loss value, the value of your car on the date of loss not the purchase value, what the car was worth when you purchased GAP. In other words, your motor insurer doesn't pay the depreciation.

Now the good news! If your car is declared a total loss, Click4Gap Return to Invoice Gap Insurance will cover the depreciation, the difference between the cost of the car as stated on the invoice* (purchase value) and loss value of your car... it's that simple!

To make sure the benefit due to you is fairly and impartially calculated, like all responsible insurers Click4Gap undertakes to establish the independent third party valuation of Glass's for accurate purchase and loss evaluations. Glass's Guide has been the motor and insurance industries top car valuation service for nearly 75 years. As with all responsible Gap providers, should the loss value or purchase value be called into question, we turn to the Glass's retail value.

How Is My Car Valued?

If you bought your car from a vat registered motor dealer within 90 days of purchasing the GAP insurance policy, the purchase value is the cost of the car as shown on the invoice*. We're regularly asked what should be included in the purchase price of your car, here's a useful guide;

Do Include

  • Factory fitted extras if your car is new
  • VAT unless you are vat registered

Don't Include

  • Any discount
  • Added warranty charges or insurance premiums
  • Vehicle tax disc (vehicle excise license)
  • dealer fitted extras
  • delivery charges

* To ensure the benefit due to you is justly and impartially calculated, like all responsible insurers Click4Gap undertake to distinguish the third party valuation of Glass's for accurate purchase and loss valuations. Glass's Guide has been the insurance and motor industries leading car valuation service for almost 75 years. As with all responsible Gap providers, should there be any variation in the loss or purchase value, we refer to the Glass's retail value.

If you didn't buy your car from a vat registered motor dealer, you should again apply the above guide. In this instance we refer to Glass's trade valuation plus 5% at time of purchase.

Example

If we assume your car has been stolen or been in an accident and your car's damaged beyond safe or economical repair causing you to need to submit an insurance claim. In this case your motor insurer will declare the car to be a total loss.

Remember, normally the settlement they pay you will be calculated based on the value of your car when it is declared a total loss not what it was originally worth!

This is where gap insurance covers you. RTI GAP Insurance pays the depreciation, the difference in the loss value, which is the value of your car at time of accident or theft; and the invoice price (purchase value) - what it was worth originally.


Invoice Price (purchase price) £6500
Value at the time of loss £3600
RTI Gap benefit £2900

Invoice Price (purchase price) £14500

How Is My Car Valued?

If you bought your car from a vat registered motor dealer within 90 days of buying GAP cover, the purchase value is the price of the car as shown on the invoice*. We often get asked what should be included in the car purchase price, here's a useful guide;

Do Include

  • Factory fitted extras
  • VAT (unless you are vat registered)

Do not Include

  • Any discount
  • warranty costs or insurance premiums
  • vehicle tax disc

* To ensure the benefit due to you is impartially and fairly calculated, as with all reliable insurers Click4Gap undertake to identify the independent third party valuation of Glass's for correct purchase and loss evaluations. Glass's Guide has been the motor and insurance sectors leading car valuation service for 75 years. Your claim would not be rejected in the unlikely event that there should be any difference in the loss value or purchase price, instead the Glass's value will be applied instead.

If you didn't buy your car from a vat registered motor dealer, again you should apply the above guide. If this is the case we will refer to Glass's Guide trade value plus 5% at time of purchase.
