Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance (GAP)

What Is GAP?

GAP protects you against losses that may occur when your vehicle is declared a total loss and the total loss settlement amount paid by your vehicle insurer is less than the outstanding amount you owe to your financier for your vehicle loan.

  • GAP can only be purchased in conjunction with a credit contract, and in the event of a total loss that credit contract must still be active. 

  • The vehicle must be comprehensively insured. 

  • The contract is for a maximum of 60 months or the length of the original credit contact. 

  • Can only be taken out at the time of vehicle sale.

Additional Benefits Include:

  • Comprehensive Motor Vehicle insurance premium in relation to the replacement vehicle

  • Unpaid comprehensive insurance deducted from the total loss settlement up to $1,000

  • Total loss excess deduction under the comprehensive insurance

  • Replacement vehicle expenses up to $2,000

  • Reimbursement for out of pocket expenses up to $300

  • Negative equity arrangement costs up to $1,000

  • Reimbursement for the cost of hiring a rental vehicle for a maximum of 5 days, up to $150 per day.

Example of a GAP Claim

You have an accident in your vehicle. Your comprehensive insurer deems it to be a total loss and pays the market value amount to your financier, leaving a $5,000 outstanding balance on your loan that you are liable for (and which must be paid immediately). If you have GAP, it would pay the $5,000 less the comprehensive insurance premium and the original GAP premium, plus any appropriate additional benefits - potentially saving you thousands*.

Purchasing a replacement vehicle can also be an expensive exercise which is where the additional benefits can really help out.

*This is an example only. There may be other deductions depending on the status of your credit contract.
