About Us

InsuretheGap.com is a UK website which is focussed on saving customers money whilst protecting them from the large financial shortfall that they could face in the event that their car is written off or stolen. In the event of a total loss, a motor insurance policy only reimburses the customer for the market value of the vehicle at the time of the claim but our GAP Insurance policies are designed to bridge the difference between the amount the motor insurance policy pays the customer and the amount that the customer originally paid for the vehicle (or the amount of outstanding vehicle finance, depending on what product is selected). We give peace of mind to customers across the UK by protecting the value of what is usually their first or second most expensive asset!

Traditionally Guaranteed Asset Protection Insurance (GAP Insurance) is offered to customers by the motor dealership when they buy a vehicle, however these policies can often be expensive and customers are not in a position to fully consider what they are being quoted or to shop around for alternative products.

New legislation was introduced in September 2015 to prevent motor traders from selling GAP insurance alongside the vehicle purchase. Instead they must allow the customer a period to shop around to find low cost alternatives. InsuretheGap.com fulfils this need by offering stand-alone GAP insurance policies for cars, motorbikes and vans, often for a fraction of the cost quoted by motor dealers.

InsuretheGap.com offers a range of GAP policies designed to protect customers whether they have paid for their car with vehicle finance, a bank loan or a cash payment and can provide cover for vehicles valued up to £150,000 in price for motorists of all ages.
