Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) offers protection against financial liability when you finance a new or used vehicle. Gap protects against financial loss in the event that your vehicle is totaled. In today's automobile market, your vehicle begins to depreciate the minute it is purchased. Because of this your vehicles outstanding loan or lease balance is usually higher during the first few years of the loan or lease.
GAP covers the difference between the market value of your vehicle and the loan or lease balance, less any delinquent loan payments, late charges, or other insurance related charges. For example: Your loan balance after one year is $18,000.00. You total your car and the insurance determines the value of your car to be $12,000.00. The "GAP" between the two amounts is $6,000.00. The GAP coverage will pay this remaining amount therefore, you owe $0.00 balance. Without GAP coverage you would be responsible for this.
