When FREE GAP insurance costs you £824!
Did you know that getting GAP insurance FREE of charge from your Motor Dealer might actually cost you money?
We regularly come across people who have had their supplying dealer offer to throw in GAP insurance free of charge (or heavily discounted) to clinch the deal. In fact we often see posts on forums such as this, by users recommending that one should try to negotiate with the dealer to get them to include GAP insurance within the deal - often motivated by an only too common misconception that the dealer's policy will somehow be superior to a policy you can get from a specialist provider such as ourselves (it almost certainly won't be).
What most people don't realise, is that discounted or free GAP insurance from a Motor Dealer will in many cases, actually cost you money should you ever need to claim on the policy.
We've prepared a blog article discussing this... it's lengthy, but well worth the read. Especially considering that one customer (detailed within the article) was charged £824 for "free" GAP insurance and after we got involved has ended up with superior, longer, GAP insurance cover and £426 back in HER pocket (it'd have been more if she'd contacted us sooner)!
