Purchase Price Protection (PPP)

In the event of a total loss this will pay the difference between the motor insurer's settlement and the original net invoice price paid for the vehicle. Provides cover for up to 4 years. Single premium policy.

Combined Purchase Protection & Finance GAP

In the event of a total loss this will pay the difference between the motor insurer's settlement and the original net invoice price paid for the vehicle or, if the vehicle is on finance, the outstanding finance on the vehicle if this is higher. Single premium policy.

Lease GAP

In the event of a total loss this will pay the difference between the motor insurer's settlement and the outstanding balance owing to the Lease company. Provides cover for up to 5 years. Single premium policy.

Top Up Fleet GAP

A GAP product specifically designed for fleets. We will cover cars, vans and trucks up to 44 tonnes as long as they are under 10 years old at inception and are comprehensively insured. It doesn't matter how the vehicles have been acquired, the policy will benefit vehicles on Finance, Contract Hire and owned outright.

In the event a customer's vehicle is the subject of a total loss this product will:

  • Top up the motor insurer's total loss settlement figure by 25%; OR
  • Pay the difference between the motor insurer's total loss settlement figure and the outstanding amount owing to the finance/lease company.

Whichever calculation is the greater (up to an agreed sum insured).

GAP specifically for electric vehicles

In the event of a total loss this policy will pay in addition to the usual GAP calculation the cost of the electric battery where it is leased and not covered under the motor insurance policy.

GAP including temporary replacement vehicle

Very few motor policies provide customers with a courtesy vehicle following a total loss, so to work alongside our GAP products we have developed a product to provide the customer with a temporary replacement vehicle following a total loss until such time as they have received their settlement offer from their motor insurer. Temporary Replacement vehicles will be available for cars and light vans up to 3.5T GVW.
