So is Gap insurance really worth it?
What are the chances of you ever having to make a claim?
We speak to thousands of customers who buy their gap insurance policies and a frequent question we are asked is although the idea of gap insurance is very good will it ever happen to them? Is gap insurance really money well spent? Will they ever need to make a gap claim?
Our answer is always exactly the same!
"We genuinely hope that you buy a gap policy and never need to use it. We want our customers to enjoy their vehicles and not have to go thorough the traumatic experience of an accidents or being the victim of theft."

Did you know that 600,000 vehicle are estimated to be written off in the UK each year alone. ( that is equivalent to the entire population of Glasgow ).* Figures taken from the Office of National Statistics.

The top ten vehicles stolen in 2011 may surprise you as not all where premium sports cars instead in descending order, the Ford transit, Vauxhall Astra, Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Corsa, BMW 3 Series, Ford Focus, Mercedes Benz Sprinter, Ford Mondeo and Honda Civic. *

Did you know that a vehicle is stolen every six minutes in the UK and less than an average of 10 seconds to steal a motor bike. *Figures taken from recent survey by the National Crime Intelligence Service
When you vehicles written off it is not just a question of having to buy another, older vehicle, or even having to use your hard earned savings instead it really can cause a massive financial strain. Imagine having no vehicle to use, having to use savings to find a deposit for another or to top up your insurance companies settlement and add to that the fact that you still owe thousand of pounds on your old agreement.

Would you like to make sure that between your two insurance companies you are given back the original purchase price you paid? This means that it you paid cash for your vehicle you now have the full price you paid back. if you paid for your vehicle using a form of finance then this would means that you could use the full purchase price to clear any finance and the balance of funds are your to do with as you see fit? ( protect the invoice price you paid )
Would you like your policy to top up your own motor insurance settlement and the amount of money that you would need to spend to buy another vehicle which is the same age mileage and conditions as yours was on the day your first collected it even if the price has gone up? (protect the replacement cost )

We are all different and want different things so please think about what you would like your policy to do for you should you need to make a claim. Simply clear any finance (Finance and Contract Hire Gap Insurance), protect the deposit and equity you have (Return to Invoice Gap Insurance) or protect the deposit equity and inflationary increase (Vehicle Replacement Insurance).
Check what your gap insurance policy covers, for example are paint protections or warranties covered? While this in itself does not stop you being able to buy the policy if your policy does not cover them then should you need to make a claim you could still be left out of pocket.
Check if the price you have paid is limited to any form of guide price, ideally only consider policies which do not have this limit. If they do, you need to know which guide price the policy is limited by and how much your vehicle is worth in the relevant guide.
If you are buying a brand new vehicle, check if your own insurance company offers new for old within the first 12 months. If they do and you are happy with any terms and conditions they may have, why not consider buying a deferred policy and saving even more money (this policy means that if you wanted a total of 3 years cover you would simply buy a two year policy and set the start date any time in the future for up to 12 months). We do not charge you a higher premium if you wish to defer your Return to Invoice or Vehicle Replacement Insurance start date with Easy Gap.
Some policies will pay a nominated dealership, some will pay you. There is no problem either way however we prefer the idea that you are paid the funds as we believe that it gives you more choice. This is a personal choice and as long as you understand the policy terms there can never be any surprises, should you ever need to make a gap insurance claim.
