GAP Insurance (RTI) is arranged by: LawShield UK Ltd with UK General Insurance Limited on behalf of Ageas Insurance Limited. It protects you from the gap between the actual cash value of a vehicle and the balance still owed on the finance. If your vehicle is written off, Combination GAP Insurance (RTI) will help to buy a replacement vehicle of similar value by paying the difference between the insured value of your vehicle and:
- the purchase price of your vehicle as confirmed by the net invoice for its purchase; or
- the amount of your finance arrangement early settlement figure, if greater.
