Daily Calculation

Pays out in cash to the policyholder?
Some GAP insurance policies from some providers will contractually oblige you to allow them to source your next vehicle for you. Others may insist that you deal with a motor dealer that they nominate to source your next car. Thereby denying you the flexibility to choose which car you get next, from which dealer or even whether you wish to use the funds towards a new car at all.

After all parties with an interest in the vehicle have been paid (e.g. a finance company), any/all excess funds are paid directly to the policyholder leaving them free to use those funds against the cost of sourcing any vehicle from any dealership of their choice.
Transferrable?
If you sell your vehicle and have not claimed on your GAP insurance policy, can the unused portion be transferred forward on a new vehicle?
Yes - we will update your policy with your new vehicle details. No cancellation, transfer or admin fees will apply.
Will pay towards your Motor Insurance excess in the event of a successful Total Loss claim?
