Guaranteed Asset Protection
In the event of a vehicle being stolen and not recovered or damaged
beyond economic repair an insurance company will “write off” the car
out the market value of the vehicle at the time of the incident.
However, as a vehicle will generally depreciate in value more
rapidly than a
driver can repay the outstanding finance, the sum received would not
outstanding amount due under the finance agreement.
GAP insurance bridges the “gap” between the amount received from the
insurance company and the amount required to settle the finance on
contract up to a maximum of £5,000.
Most of the finance companies utilised by Time4leasing and Cars2lease include Gap
within the monthly payments, however should a funder exclude Gap
cover then we can offer it as an addition, if required, you will be
Time4leasing or Cars2lease car leasing brokers prior to ordering the vehicle.
For something like £4 a month GAP insurance makes
pretty much sense. It is not like you are going to break the bank are you? We understand that buying a GAP Insurance policy can often be
very complex, and many companies pride themselves on giving open and honest feedback to
their existing and potential customers to help them fully understand the options available.
Companies that offer GAP insurance work in partnership with insurance companies to agree insurance estimates should your car be written off or stolen, so
they can guarantee that they pay out the total shortfall, ensuring you are not left out of pocket.
If you have any particular
questions, there are companies that are more than eager to help you.
Most GAP insurance quotes are offered in two ways.
You either build the price into your monthly lease payments or pay it off in
some lump sum. Most people prefer to pay it monthly with their lease payments.
This means you will have to ask the car leasing dealer to arrange this for you.
If you have the spare cash then you may want to pay it off in one go and you
probably will get a discount.

Why take GAP insurance?
Your standard insurance will pay for the damage
of the car in the case of an accident. However it will not pay you in full in
the case you write off the car from a fire, a very serious accident or theft.
Is it worth it?
GAP Insurance will protect you if you write off your vehicle. GAP Insurance will ensure that you are not left out of pocket if you have a total insurance loss by covering any shortfall between your insurance pay out and the amount outstanding on the finance agreement.
Did you know that over half a million cars are stolen
every year, of which most of these are written off or vandalised. Add to that
number and all the accidents that happen each year and you could possibly the next person to suffer a vehicle write off.
This is why GAP Insurance was introduced to cover
you with a policy that will cover you against financial loss should your car be stolen and/or written off.
Most of us think that our Comprehensive Motor Insurance covers us if our vehicle
is written off. I'm afraid it does not. You could face a bill of around £3,000
for an average vehicle if the car is written off. For £4 a month you will be
fully protected what ever happens.
There is a financial GAP that you
will have to pay out of your own pocket if you do not take out GAP Insurance
with your car lease.
If your vehicle is written off your
motor insurance company will only pay the current market value for your vehicle!
So what happens if the current market value is not enough to replace your
vehicle or pay off your finance or contract hire agreement? Simple, you will
have to pay for it out your pocket.
when I leased a car wanted to avoid paying for it and then thought it is not
really worth the risk. Just pay for it.
