Smart Car Gap Insurance
The design concept for the Smart car began in the early 1970s originally developed by the company that produces Swatch watches, They soon called this idea the ‘Swatchmobile’ After approaching many manufacturers with the idea of producing small battery operated vehicles initially having brief backing by Volkswagen, the first model was released by Daimler-Benz in October 1998.
Unfortunately, misfortune can occasionally strike, and some situations are unavoidable. Your Skoda could be written off through an accident, fire, flood or theft, and most motor insurance providers will only settle your claim based on the current market valuation. This can be substantially less than the price you have paid, which could leave you out of pocket. The good news is that Click4Gap Gap Insurance can help you by covering this shortfall, leaving you free of this debt.

What is Smart Car Gap Insurance?
Smart Car Gap Insurance covers the depreciation of your car from the time you purchase the vehicle, to the moment of loss. You’ll be reimbursed with the difference between the market value paid by your motor insurer, and the purchase value of your vehicle when you bought it. Covering this shortfall means Click4Gap ensures you won’t be left out of pocket.
Alternatively, if your vehicle is leased, or on a contract hire agreement, we’ll pay the difference between the market value of your car at the time of loss and the outstanding balance of your lease or contract hire agreement.

Smart Car Gap Insurance – is it worth it?
A car depreciates from the very moment it leaves the showroom, and continues to decline in value year after year.
Let’s say, for example, that you purchased your car for £16,500. Then, some months 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.
If the market value was just £11,200 that means you could be out of pocket by as much as £5,300, which would be for your own account. If you have Gap Insurance however, you’d be able to claim the £5,300 and wouldn’t be left out of pocket.
And, if your car is on a Lease or Contract Hire Agreement, your outstanding finance could be as significant as £17,000, leaving you facing a shortfall of as much as £5,500. With Smart Car Gap Insurance this amount would be covered, removing this burden from you.
