GAP insurance is a specific kind of insurance that is separate to regular comprehensive car insurance.
In the event that your car is written off in an accident or stolen (and not recovered), GAP insurance covers you over and above what your car insurance pays out. It can either cover the shortfall between your insurance payout and the original price of the car, or it can cover you for any outstanding car finance payments.
