Vauxhall GAP Insurance

If you are looking to safeguard your latest investment, Vauxhall GAP Insurance could be your perfect solution.

Arguably one of the UK’s best-known motoring brands. Despite a lot of changes through the years, Vauxhall’s identity has remained recognisably British with a focus on affordability and popular appeal.

If you want truly comprehensive cover for your Vauxhall, it’s worth considering GAP Insurance in addition to your standard policy.


Why do I need Vauxhall GAP insurance?

Many motorists take out insurance without considering what would happen in the event of a write-off. This is hardly surprising as no one wants to contemplate a worst-case scenario. But it’s important to consider the possibility and ensure you’re properly protected. After all, around half a million cars are written off every year. 

In such circumstances, it’s important to realise that, however good your insurance policy is, it probably won’t pay out anything like the sum it would take to buy a new like-for-like replacement. There’s a perfectly good reason for this shortfall: it’s called depreciation.


How does GAP Insurance work?

Most insurers pay out the current market value of your car in the event of a write-off. This is typically a lot less than the original market value or the amount it would cost to replace your car with a shiny new model.

New cars typically depreciate very quickly. In fact, you can expect your car’s value to plummet the moment you drive it off the showroom forecourt. After three years it’s likely that depreciation has knocked 60% off the value of your car. So, a £20,000 Vauxhall Astra could be worth £8,000 three years after purchase.

Depreciation inevitably influences insurance claims. In the event of a three-year-old Astra being written off or stolen, the insurance claim would be determined by its present market value. This would leave you £12,000 short of the sum required to buy a like-for-like replacement.

GAP Insurance serves as an additional layer of coverage, effectively bridging the difference between the payout from your standard policy and the amount required to replace your vehicle.
