LEASE GAP INSURANCE

HOW LEASE GAP WORKS

Lease GAP Insurance provides financial protection should your vehicle be declared a total loss by your motor insurance provider and you have taken out a contract hire or lease agreement.

In the event of a valid claim, Lease GAP Insurance will pay the difference between the payout made by your motor insurer and any early settlement payment to the contract hire or operating lease company. Plus a contribution towards the deposit on a replacement leased vehicle. However, there are specific exclusions.

CAN YOU GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE?

Your monthly rental is £340 (inc. VAT) for your vehicle. If your vehicle is declared a total loss in year two, your motor insurance company payout (i.e. market value) is £21,000.

The contract hire or leasing company will require an early settlement payment of £24,000.

Lease GAP Insurance will top up the insurance payout (i.e. market value) to the early settlement amount, which in this example would be £3,000 PLUS you will receive a contribution equal to three months payments as a deposit on a new lease agreement, which in this example would be £1,020. (up to a maximum of £2,500).

Lease GAP will also cover your motor insurance policy excess up to an amount of £250.

Cover is available for varying durations, depending on your requirements and according to the terms of your contract hire or lease agreement. Cover ends earlier in the event of a paid claim or if the vehicle is no longer in your possession.

Cancellable:

If, for any reason, you wish to cancel your policy and you do so within 30 days, and no claim has been registered with AutoProtect during this time, we’ll give you a full refund. After that, you may still cancel at any point, subject to a £35 administration fee. You will receive a pro-rata refund reflecting the length of the term remaining.


SIGNIFICANT EXCLUSIONS*

As with all insurance policies there are some circumstances for which Lease GAP Insurance will unfortunately not cover you.

You must have in place a fully comprehensive motor insurance policy issued by an authorised UK motor insurer which insures against an eventuality that results in a total loss to the vehicle throughout the period of insurance.

In the event your motor insurer rejects your claim and a settlement payment is not made you will not be covered by either of these policies.

Vehicle Exclusions:

We are unable to cover all vehicle types. You will be excluded from the benefits of this policy if:

  • The vehicle has been modified in any way from the manufacturer’s specification 
  • The vehicle is used for hire or reward, i.e. taxis or courier vehicles. Alternative products may be available from your supplying dealership that can provide cover for these vehicles. Please ask for further information. 
  • The vehicle is used in a competitive event. 
  • The vehicle is heavier than 5,000kg gross weight. 
  • The vehicle is listed in the specifically excluded list; some prestige vehicles and sports cars are excluded: 

Including, but not limited to, Aston Martin, Bentley, Honda NSX models, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, and kit cars.

General Exclusions:

  • The monthly rental payment of the vehicle should not exceed £750 plus VAT. 
  •  Any total loss due to your negligence or deliberate action. 
  • Any total loss as a result of an accident where the driver of the vehicle is under the influence of alcohol, drugs not prescribed by a registered medical practitioner, or drugs prescribed by a registered medical practitioner where a warning against driving has been given.

Additional Costs:

Additional costs within the contract hire or lease settlement for anything other than the agreed rental of the vehicle. This includes but is not limited to; administration charges, late payment charges and arrears, early settlement charges.

Tax:

Any recoverable Value Added Tax (VAT) where you are VAT registered.

*You should note that there are certain limitations in terms of the maximum amount you may claim. For full benefits and exclusions, please refer to sections titled ‘What is covered?’ and ‘What is not covered?’ of the policy terms and conditions which will be provided on request.
