In the event that your car is damaged beyond repair or stolen and not recovered, the amount paid by your comprehensive insurer may be less than the amount still owed to your financier.

This difference is what we call ‘GAP’. eric’s GAP insurance can pay to cover this shortfall, depending on the cover chosen, and in addition may pay for any incidental out of pocket expenses incurred along the way.

Key Benefits
