What does RTI GAP Insurance cover?
If your vehicle is written off or stolen, Return to Invoice GAP Insurance pays the difference between what your motor insurer pays you and what you originally paid for the vehicle (the invoice price).
How do Return to Invoice policies work?
You buy a car
Let’s say you decide to buy a £30,000 car using a bank or building society loan.
Your car is written off
2 years later, your car was deemed a ‘total loss’ by your motor insurer after a collision. Due to your car losing value over time (depreciation), your vehicle is now only worth £20,000 and your motor insurer agrees to pay you this amount as a settlement.
You’re left with a financial shortfall
This leaves you with a financial shortfall of £10,000, meaning you may not be able to buy a replacement car of a similar spec to the one that was written off.
What’s more, it’s likely you’ll need to continue paying the loan repayments using other financial means.
Your GAP policy reimburses you
Our Return to Invoice GAP Insurance policy will pay the difference between what your motor insurer pays you (£20,000) and what you originally paid for the vehicle (£30,000), which in this example would be £10,000.
