Is Gap Insurance Worth It?

What is Gap Insurance?

Gap (Guaranteed Asset Protection) insurance covers the difference (or the “gap”) between the cash value of your car and the amount owed on it. Gap insurance applies to vehicles on a loan or a lease.

Do I Need Gap Insurance?

The big question many ask, “Is gap protection worth it”? Both industry experts and consumers alike agree that getting gap insurance is worth it. Why? There are many reasons to purchase gap insurance rather than hoping for the best each time you head onto the Onaway roads:

  • Depreciation happens the moment you drive of the dealership lot.
  • Accidents can happen when you least expect it.
  • Most insurance companies only cover what your vehicle is worth at the time of the accident.
  • If your new car is stolen or totaled, and you owe more on it than its current deemed value, the gap coverage will take care of that difference.
  • The cost of gap insurance is pretty low and easy to obtain, so there is no reason NOT to have it.
