So you've bought a new car - what next?
We all know that buying a new car is probably the second largest purchase you make in life! So of course it's important to carefully consider how you plan to look after it!
We wouldn't be looking after you if we didn't tell you about GAP Insurance for your new car.
WHAT IS GAP INSURANCE?
In 2018 over 100,000 cars were stolen in England and Wales, a 50% increase over the last 5 years*
If your vehicle was written–off or stolen, do you know how much it would cost you? It could be thousands of pounds if your motor insurer only pays out the market value at time of loss. What happens if the motor insurance settlement value is not enough to replace your vehicle or even pay off your outstanding finance?
GAP insurance can help fill the shortfall between your motor insurance settlement and the amount you originally paid for your vehicle or the cost of a replacement vehicle or repay the outstanding finance on your vehicle depending on the level of cover purchased.
Speak to to Wilson and Co to find out more about Vauxhall Finance GAP Insurance.
