What Does Gap Insurance Cover?

What is gap protection? Aside from covering the difference between your vehicle’s value and the amount you owe left, gap insurance offers Syosset drivers a wide variety of protections, such as:

  • Theft
  • Fire
  • Vandalism
  • Accidents
  • Nature damages (tornado, hurricane, flood, etc.)

This type of coverage is helpful to supplement regular insurance.

Is Gap Insurance Worth It?

The simple answer is yes! Gap insurance protects your vehicle and investment when you run into unexpected issues, like theft or unforeseen damage. Because your vehicle loses value after you leave the lot, this type of insurance covers the “gap” between what your vehicle is worth and what insurance will cover if you get in an accident.

How Can I Get Gap Insurance?

You can get gap insurance through your auto insurer whether that’s through your dealership of choice or a business that deals explicitly with auto coverage. If you decide to get covered, it’ll cost as little as $20 a year plus the one-time fee at the time of purchase.
