Combined Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) and Return to Invoice (RTI) starts to protect you where your conventional motor insurance stops. This plan covers any shortfall between the agreed full insured value that your motor insurer pays out and the invoice value of your vehicle or outstanding balance of your finance agreement - whichever the higher.
You are eligible for the policy if at the date of commencement of the Period of Insurance:
• You are the owner of the vehicle or in respect of contract hire/lease agreements the authorised driver of the vehicle.
• You are the insured person and named as the policyholder in the motor insurance policy for the vehicle.
• Any finance agreement, contract hire/lease agreement secured on the vehicle is in your name.
• You have notified us of any vehicle transfer and your replacement vehicle does not exceed the invoice price for the original vehicle. For information on this please contact the administrators.
• You must be a permanent resident of the United Kingdom unless posted to a combat zone as a serving member of HM Armed Forces.
WHAT IS COVERED?
If within the period of insurance and within the territorial limits an incident occurs which results in the vehicle being a total loss under your motor insurance policy, this insurance will pay:
• For a vehicle that is not financed but paid for as a cash transaction it makes up any shortfall between the total loss settlement by your motor insurer and the purchase invoice price you paid for it.
• For a vehicle that is purchased using a finance agreement the difference between the purchase invoice price of the vehicle; (or if greater the finance settlement) and the total loss settlement paid under your motor insurance policy.
• All the above will include the motor insurance policy excess up to an amount of £250. It will also include the cost of a vehicle warranty and also contribute £100 towards road fund license costs.
• Only one claim can be made under the policy during the period of insurance and the maximum benefit covered under the policy is the amount stated in your proposal/policy schedule.
