Basically speaking, gap insurance is a type of optional coverage that works to protect consumers who finance or lease a vehicle and they actually owe more money that what the car is worth. Gap insurance stands for guaranteed asset protection, and it is helpful should you need to recover the difference in what you will receive from the insurance company and the amount you owe should you have a total vehicle loss.


There are certain things that gap insurance will cover, including theft and an accident that results in a total loss. It does not cover things like your deductible, bodily injury or death. Additionally, not every driver will be eligible to get gap insurance and not everyone should get it. Coverage is only going to be available if you have a loan or lease for your vehicle. Even with financing, gap insurance should only be purchased if the amount of money that you owe happens to be more than the actual value of your vehicle.
