How will Gap Cover benefit you?

Gap Insurance provides you with essential protection against your car depreciating between the time you bought it and when it is stolen or damaged beyond repair.

Your motor insurance will typically pay a settlement amount equivalent to the market value at the date of loss. This can leave you with a shortfall when it comes to replacing your car, or worse, having to continue to pay the finance contract deficit.

Gap Insurance is designed to cover this shortfall to ensure you’re not left out of pocket… and for the many thousands of Click4Gap policy holders who’ve suffered the total loss of their car, it’s been a life saver!

How does Gap Insurance coverage work?

A car typically depreciates the moment it leaves the showroom, and continues to depreciate year after year.

Let’s say for example that you purchased a car then, a year or two later, it’s written off. Your motor insurer will pay a settlement amount equivalent to the market value on the day it was written off.

That means you could well be out of pocket by a significant amount… and if you financed your car, leased it, or took out a contract hire agreement, your outstanding balance could be even more when you take early settlement costs and interest into account.

If you had Gap Insurance however, this amount would be covered, subject to the policy terms, and you’d be left free of this debt to look for a replacement.

Have a look at the illustrative examples below to see how this could impact you.

Your motor insurance will typically only cover your car’s value at the time of loss.

Select the tab that best indicates how you funded your vehicle to see what may need to be covered if it’s written off or stolen, and declared a total loss.

Possible shortfall amount,
for your account

If you paid £16,500 cash for your car and a year or so later it’s declared a total loss, after your motor insurance pay-out you could have a shortfall of as much as £5,300. If you have Gap Insurance, this shortfall would be covered in total up to an amount of £50,000, subject to the policy terms, plus up to £1,500 for dealer-fitted accessories and £250 towards your motor insurance excess.

When is Gap cover a good idea?

Gap Insurance is a valuable addition to your motor insurance cover, especially if you’re concerned about how much your car might depreciate after you buy it… and, if it’s a total loss, how you would cover this shortfall as well as paying for a replacement.

If your car was financed, or you took out a lease or contract hire agreement, this shortfall may well be significantly more. And, if you decided to finance with a balloon payment at the end of your contract period, you may well face serious financial difficulty.

For all of these situations, there’s a Click4Gap Gap Insurance solution that will cover the shortfall and ensure you won’t have to compromise when it comes to replacing your vehicle.

When shouldn’t you consider Gap Insurance?

If you’re fortunate enough not to be concerned about covering your car’s shortfall in the event of a total loss, then you might decide you don’t need to consider Gap Insurance.

If you’ve paid cash for your vehicle, or you paid cash with a substantial deposit, you may decide that you’ll cover the gap yourself, even though this could mean you’ll be out of pocket, and may well face a significant shortfall when it comes to replacing your vehicle.

If your motor insurer has offered you new-for-old cover during your car’s first year since registration, then car Gap Insurance during this period might not be required.

 

What are your options for Gap Insurance?

There are a few different types of policy you can choose from when taking out your Gap Insurance cover with Click4Gap, these depend largely on how you intend to fund the purchase of your vehicle.

Combined Return to Invoice Gap Insurance

If you paid cash for your vehicle, or paid a sizeable deposit, or if you financed it, Combined RTI Gap cover will pay out the shortfall between the cost of your vehicle and the market value at the point of claim, which is the amount your motor insurer will cover. This is cover that will protect you no matter if you use your vehicle for private use or for business.

Lease/Contract Hire Gap Insurance

If you leased your vehicle or it’s under a contract hire agreement, Lease/Contract Hire Gap Insurance will cover you for the shortfall on your lease agreement, after your motor insurer settlement. If, for any reason, you change your vehicle within the first 90 days from the start date, we will also arrange to transfer your cover to your new vehicle without hassle or charge.

What are some of the exclusions you should be aware of?

There are a few reasons that a policy may not provide cover, or a vehicle might not be eligible for cover. These include:
