Which Gap Insurance do you choose?

Confused about gap protectionWhich gap insurance is best for youConfused about Gap Insurance? This is not unusual, as Gap Insurance can be misunderstood and often people simply have never heard of it before. It could also be the case that a motor dealer has used the term 'Gap Insurance', presented you with one type of cover and left you with the impression that there is one and only choice you have.

However, that is normally not the case.

When Motor Dealers talk to you about 'Gap Insurance' it will, nine times out of ten, be Return to Invoice Gap Insurance. This can protect you back to the original price you paid for your vehicle from the value of it when it is written off. The maximum duration offered by motor dealers is normally 3 years. Like your motor dealer, we also offer Return to Invoice, in addition to Vehicle Replacement Insurance, Finance and Contract Hire Gap and Shortfall Gap Insurance.
