What Is Gap Insurance On a Car?

Gap (guaranteed asset protection) insurance is designed to cover the difference or the ‘gap’ between the cash value of your vehicle and the amount of money that is still owed on it.

Is Gap Insurance Necessary?

Is gap insurance worth it? Many consumers and industry experts agree that gap insurance is, in fact, a worthy investment. Some of the main reasons a Comanche driver would consider gap insurance include:

Depreciation happens the moment you drive of the dealership lot.

  • Accidents can happen at any time, including right after you drive a new vehicle off the lot.
  • Much of the time, auto insurance providers will only cover the worth of your vehicle at the time of the accident.
  • If you’re driving a new car that is stolen or totaled and you owe more on it than it is currently worth, gap insurance helps to account for the difference.
  • Generally speaking, the cost of gap insurance is low and it is easy to obtain, leading many drivers to find that there’s no reason not to have it.

How Do I Obtain Gap Insurance?

As we noted above, gap insurance is generally very easy to obtain. There are several ways to do so in Abilene, including:

  • Your liability insurance provider may offer gap insurance for only $20 per year.
  • The dealership you’re purchasing your vehicle from or the lender you’re getting an auto loan from may offer gap insurance for a one-time fee.
  • You can seek out a specialised gap insurance company, who will offer the coverage for a one-time fee.
