Lease Gap Insurance provides financial protection should your vehicle be declared a total loss by your motor insurance.
How Lease Gap Insurance Works
In the event of a valid claim, APG Cover Lease Gap Insurance will cover the shortfall between what your motor insurer will pay, which is the market value of the vehicle at the time of loss, and the outstanding balance on your finance account. Plus, you’ll get up to £2,500 towards your first three monthly payments on your new agreement, as well as up to £250 towards your motor insurance excess, subject to your policy terms.
Can you give me an example?
If you leased your car with a purchase value of £21,500, and a year or so later when it’s written off the outstanding finance is £22,200. Your insurer will pay out the market value, which could be as little as £14,600, leaving you with a shortfall of as much as £7,600. If you have Gap Insurance however, this will be covered in full, subject to your policy terms.
Plus you’ll get up to £2,500 towards your first three monthly payments on your replacement lease agreement, as well as an additional £250 towards your motor insurance excess.

Here are some exclusions to be aware of
There are a few reasons a policy may not provide cover, or a vehicle might not be eligible for cover. Some of these include:
• If the vehicle is more than seven years old, or does not appear in Glass’s Guide, or your monthly rental payment is more than £2,000 per month, it will not be eligible for cover.
• Commercial vehicles, vehicles over 3,500kgs, or vehicles designed to carry more than eight people are not eligible for cover.
• If the vehicle is not covered by a comprehensive motor insurance policy, or the driver of the vehicle at the time of the loss is not listed as a named driver on the comprehensive motor insurance policy, any claim made will not be valid.
• The policy will not provide cover if the driver of the vehicle at the time of loss does not hold a valid driving license, or is intoxicated, or is under the influence of non-prescription drugs
