Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance
A motor vehicle related insurance product that covers a shortfall of up to $5,000 between the payout received from an insurance company in a total loss situation and the settlement value of the vehicle finance.
For example: If you borrow $20,000 to buy a car and the insurance payout is less than this, you are not only without a vehicle, there is a shortfall or "gap" that you still owe. GAP Insurance will pay that shortfall for you up to $5,000 (plus additional benefits) once your vehicle insurer has accepted your claim.
These benefits are only available if the insured is over 21 years of age at the time the policy is taken out

Excess Cover The comprehensive motor vehicle insurance excess in relation to the "total loss" vehicle will be paid
