Finance GAP Insurance is a type of GAP Insurance that ensures that in the event of a write-off with your finance vehicle, you’re not caught short by your car insurer payout and left with outstanding charges.
What is finance GAP Insurance?
Many motorists don’t consider the reality of a write-off to their vehicle. Even the finest insurers will only reimburse you for the current market value of your car. Meanwhile, the second you drive it off the forecourt, a car’s value begins to depreciate. Typically by 60% in the first three years.
A Finance GAP Insurance policy tops up an insurer’s payout in the event of a write-off, providing the extra funds to settle any outstanding finance.

Why would my Finance GAP policy not pay out?
Finance GAP Insurance usually won’t cover you if the amount you have borrowed is higher than the cost of the car. This may come about if you have part exchanged a previous vehicle with outstanding finance (Negative Equity Finance). In this instance, a finance GAP policy won’t cover the older debt on your previous car if you have bought your car on finance or hire purchase.
Additionally, if you don’t have a comprehensive insurance policy, your car isn’t considered a write-off or you’re using your vehicle outside “normal use” you may put your GAP Insurance at risk.
