Customer Responsibility

It is the personal responsibility of customers and visitors to this site to ensure that they understand and comply with their local laws and regulations pertaining to purchasing insurance as these laws and regulations may vary from country to country. It is not the intention of this website that it be used by a customer in any jurisdiction where it would be contrary to local law or regulation.

Customers should consider printing out these terms and conditions, the Key facts document, policy wording and certificate of insurance that come with your policy, and keep them in an easily accessible place.

If a customer does not comply with the terms and notices specified on the InsuretheGap website, the customer's policy may be suspended or cancelled.

InsuretheGap will provide you with quotations based on the information you have provided to us. If you do not provide information and answers that are true and accurate and disclose all relevant facts, your insurance policy may become invalid and claims may not be paid. If your insurance is invalid, you could also be liable for any third party costs in the event of an accident.

Before accepting a policy it is of the utmost importance that all the information the insurance company holds on you is accurate. It is therefore important that you carefully read through the information you provide to check that it is correct and that you have disclosed all relevant facts.

It is important that you read the insurance company's policy terms and conditions to check that you understand and agree with them. The insurance company's policy terms or conditions are not the same as our website terms and conditions and they will be the terms which you will be agreeing to when purchasing a policy.

It is important that you read all insurance documents issued to you and ensure that you are aware of the cover, limits and other terms that apply. Particular attention must be paid to any warranties and conditions as failure to comply with them could invalidate your policy.

If the information supplied by you is not correct, it is your responsibility to identify the mistake and contact us. We do not accept any responsibility to you if your insurance is invalid because you made a mistake in providing the correct information or if you failed to disclose relevant facts to us or to the underlying insurer.

If you have any doubt about whether further information about you, not requested by InsuretheGap is required to be disclosed to the insurer, or if you think that something shown to you may be incorrect, please contact us before you accept the quotation.
