Vehicles depreciate in value from the moment they are driven off the forecourt. Many motor insurers will normally just pay out the current market value on a vehicle when it is written off, regardless of how much it originally cost to buy. Depending on how much the car cost when it was purchased and the impact depreciation has had, this could leave your customers out of pocket with a substantial shortfall to make up.
GAP Cover, or Guaranteed Asset Protection, covers your customers when their vehicle is written off by their motor insurer and there is a difference between the price they paid for that vehicle and the amount their insurer paid out.
