Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
Let us help you bridge the GAP in your auto insurance.
Though we hope it never happens, accidents do occur. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident, or is stolen and unrecoverable, your insurance company may only pay out the vehicle’s cash value. Because vehicle values depreciate quickly, this can be thousands less than what you owe on your loan balance. GAP can save your from having to pay out of pocket to cover the difference.
What can be covered:
- Autos, as well as motorcycles, jet skis, snowmobiles, and ATVs.
- Loan terms up to 84 months
- Loan amounts up to $100,000
Covers up to 125% of the vehicle's value as determined by MSRP and/or NADA.
Receive a $1,000 credit towards the purchase of a replacement vehicle that is financed with Affinity Plus within 90 days after the primary insurance settlement takes place for GAP.
Covers up to $1,000 of your auto insurance damage deductible when paid as part of GAP.
Covers up to $50,000 of the remaining loan balance.
The Auto Advantage Program which includes Auto Deductible Reimbursement (ADR), Personal ID Consultation and Warranty Vault. If you suffer a loss on your vehicle while covered by an auto policy and are required to pay your deductible, ADR will reimburse you for the cost of your deductible, up to $500. ADR allows for an unlimited number of claims for the first three years of your coverage.
