HPI GAP Insurance - Quote
Included - Insurance to ensure you get the full value of vehicle back. If your vehicle is written off this insurance pays the difference between the Insurance pay out and the amount you paid for the vehicle.
Not included - Don't confuse this product with personal car insurance. It's not.
What we say - Protects you against vehicle depreciation. The older you car gets, the less it's worth. As an example, if you pay £10,000 for a car, after 12 months, it may only be worth £6,000. If you have an acciident, and the car is written off, the Insurance company will only pay you the £6,000 which is the current market value of the car at the time of the accident. With this insurance, they will pay you the balance of £4,000 so you are not left out of pocket.
