What is Finance GAP? - If your car is declared a write off by your vehicle insurer in the event of a theft or accident there may be a shortfall between the insurer’s market value and the amount required to settle any finance agreement. This shortfall may be quite significant depending on the outstanding period on the finance agreement and the cars depreciation and you will be responsible for this shortfall. In the event of this occurring, a GAP Insurance policy will bridge the gap between any shortfall and will pay the finance company the outstanding amount.
Who would benefit from a Finance GAP policy? – Any individual or business that is contract hiring, leasing or contract / hire purchasing a vehicle.
Finance GAP Example - A customer leases a Ford Mondeo at an original purchase price of £18475.00. 12 months later the car is involved in an accident and written off. The finance company is owed £13713 for the vehicle but the insurance payout is for only £12462.00. GAP Insurance would pay the £1251.00 shortfall between the payout from the Insurance Company and the amount owed to the finance company in settlement.
