Boundless members can make exclusive savings on GAP insurance (guaranteed asset protection insurance) with Car Care Plan. GAP insurance is designed to make sure you’re not left out of pocket should your insurer declare your vehicle a write-off as a result of an accident, fire, theft or adverse weather conditions.

What is GAP Insurance?

In the event your car is written off, GAP insurance is designed to bridge the ‘gap’ between the original amount you paid for your car, and the amount your insurer pays out based on its value at the time of a claim. GAP insurance, therefore, protects you against things such as depreciation and outstanding finance, which can leave you out of pocket.

GAP Insurance benefits:*

  • Three years’ GAP Insurance cover from only £190 – an exclusive offer for Boundless members
  • Unlimited claim limit not exceeding the vehicle purchase price
  • Unlimited mileage allowance once your policy starts
  • Interest-free 10-month instalment plan available on online applications
  • Suitable for car owners with comprehensive motor insurance

How GAP Insurance works

In the event that you have to make a total-loss motor insurance claim following a vehicle theft, fire or accident, you’ll be asked to provide evidence of the motor insurance settlement (usually a letter from your insurer outlining the value and the terms of the settlement).

Your GAP insurance claim will then be processed and, for valid claims, the company will make a payment to cover the difference between the motor insurance settlement and the value of your car when you bought your GAP insurance policy (or the original vehicle purchase price of your car if you bought your policy when you bought your car).

FAQ's

Q

Am I not already covered for this with my motor insurance?

A

In the event of an insurance write-off, your motor insurer will pay out the value of your car at the time of your total loss. This may not be the amount you actually paid for the car. Your motor insurer might provide new-for-old cover if your car is less than 12 months old, so you should check that GAP insurance is right for your circumstances.

Q

Does it matter who insures my car?

A

No – all Car Care Plan ask is that your car is covered by comprehensive motor insurance issued by a UK-authorised motor insurer.

Q

What if I change my motor insurance part-way through my GAP insurance cover?

A

It doesn’t matter – provided your car is covered by comprehensive motor insurance with no gaps in insurance, you’re covered. It doesn’t matter who your motor insurance is provided by, just as long as they are UK-authorised.

Q

How soon can I make a valid claim?

A

You can make a valid claim as soon as your policy is registered with Car Care Plan – there’s no waiting period before a claim can be made, although Car Care Plan can’t cover claims which are already ongoing, or which relate to a claim which happened before the start date of your GAP insurance policy.

Q

What if I sell my car?

A

Unfortunately, you cannot transfer your GAP insurance cover to a new vehicle. However, if you cancel your policy within 30 days of purchase you will receive a full refund, if cancelled after 30 days from purchase you will be eligible for a pro-rata refund**.

Q

Can I get GAP insurance cover for a private-hire vehicle or chauffeur car?

A

Car Care Plan can't cover vehicles used for hire or reward, including taxis, private-hire vehicles, chauffeur cars or driving schools. Car Care Plan are also unable to provide GAP insurance to vehicles used for racing or rallying, including time-trials, timed events or track days.

Q

What if my car is an import?

A

Unfortunately, if your car is an import (not a UK-specification model originally purchased from a UK dealer by its first owner), Car Care Plan can’t cover it.
