Purchasing a vehicle?
Protect your investment with GAP Advantage.
GAP keeps you in the driver’s seat.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Advantage, is a voluntary, non-insurance program offered as protection on a new or used vehicle that is financed. It is a supplemental benefit that enhances, rather than replaces, your standard comprehensive, collision, or liability coverage. GAP Advantage waives the difference between your primary insurance carrier’s settlement and the payoff of your loan. In other words, it protects the “gap” between your vehicle’s value and the amount you still owe in the case it is damaged beyond repair or stolen and never recovered.
Protect your wallet
Once you drive off the lot, your vehicle is already worth less. Since most insurance companies base their claim payments on the current value of your vehicle, your loan could be higher than the value of your vehicle in the event of a total loss. Which means you could owe out-of-pocket money to pay off your loan.

That’s because it waives the difference between your primary insurance companies settlement – and the payoff of your loan balance, up to a certain loan to value maximum (LTV) and subject to limitations and conditions.
