Since gap insurance (Guaranteed Asset Protection) may not be as common as a traditional insurance plan, you may be thinking to yourself, “What it gap insurance?” Well, gap insurance covers the difference between the cash value of your car and the amount you still need to repay to the lender, and then applies it to a vehicle that is under a lease or a loan.
