How GAP works
What is Combined GAP Insurance by smart?
It offers you the opportunity to not incur financial loss if your smart is written off and is not replaced by the motor insurer; when your motor insurer may only pay out the market value at the time of the loss.
If you have chosen to finance your smart?
Combined GAP Insurance by smart makes up any shortfall between your comprehensive motor insurance settlement offer and the original purchase invoice price, or if greater the shortfall between the finance settlement.
If you purchase your smart as a cash buyer?
Combined GAP Insurance by smart makes up any shortfall between your comprehensive motor insurance settlement offer and the original purchase invoice price.
What is Lease GAP Insurance by smart?
In the event of your smart being written off, our product is designed to protect you against the risk of any shortfall in your lease agreement. Following the comprehensive motor insurance settlement, Lease GAP Insurance by smart will pay the difference between this and the cost to clear your lease agreement and help you start a new one.
How GAP Insurance pays out
If you paid £14,000 for your smart and it is written off and your motor insurance company agree to pay out £10,000. Combined GAP Insurance by smart will pay-out £4,000, making up the shortfall between the price you originally paid.
Your vehicle is written off and your motor insurance company agree to pay out £10,000 but you still owe £14,000 on your lease agreement. Lease GAP Insurance by smart will pay-out £4,000 to clear your lease agreement and help you start a new one.
