What Does Gap Insurance Cover?

What does gap insurance cover? Gap insurance offers protection for a variety of vehicle-related issues. It is important to keep in mind that gap insurance offers vehicle coverage but does not protect against property damage, bodily injuries, or negligence. With that in mind, here is a breakdown of gap insurance to bring peace of mind to your Pahrump travels:

Gap Insurance Covers:

  • Theft
  • Fire
  • Vandalism
  • Accident
  • Acts of nature (tornado, hurricane, flood, etc.)

Gap Insurance Does NOT Cover:

  • Deductible (though some gap insurance policies allow this)
  • Engine failures and other mechanical repairs/malfunctions
  • Death
  • Extended warranties

The most important thing to remember when asking, “What does gap insurance do,” is that it is designed to cover total loss in the event of an accident. Although it may add a minor monthly cost, it can be invaluable in the unfortunate event of a major collision.
