What is gap insurance? Specifically, what is gap insurance on a car? Gap Insurance, or Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance, covers the difference between the value of the model and the balance still owed on it.

What Else Does Gap Insurance Cover?

What is gap protection? Gap insurance protects your vehicle in many ways apart from the difference between your vehicle’s value and the amount left on your loan. It doesn’t cover bodily injuries, mechanical repairs, or your deductible, but it does cover:

  • Theft
  • Fire
  • Vandalism
  • Accidents
  • Natural damages (tornado, hurricane, flood, etc.)

Having this type of coverage comes in handy when regular insurance doesn’t cover all of these emergency troubles. It’s better to be prepared with gap insurance when you can be.

Is Gap Insurance Worth It?

Having gap insurance means protecting the investment you place in your vehicle when something occurs that’s out of the ordinary, like if it’s stolen. Since your vehicle depreciates the second you drive off the lot, gap insurance covers the difference between your vehicle’s value and what your insurance will cover if you get into an accident.

How Can I Get Gap Insurance?

Gap insurance can be purchased through your auto insurer, whether it’s your dealership of choice or a business that deals explicitly with auto coverage. If you decide to get covered, it’ll cost as little as $20 a year plus a one-time fee at the time of purchase.
