If your car is written off in an accident or stolen and not recovered, the insured value of your car may be considerably less than the amount still owing on your loan, leaving you with a short fall. In these circumstances your insurance payout won’t pay off your loan and you’re left with a debt and no car.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance covers this difference (subject to policy limits) allowing you to purchase another vehicle with no shortfall.
It is always a good idea to consider the Product Disclosure Statement from the product issuer to ensure that the policy is right for you. Contact one of our finance and insurance specialists if you have any questions.
