GAP insurance statistics

We're often asked questions like, "Is GAP insurance worth it?" and "Do many people buy GAP insurance?". Of course we know that the popularity and demand for GAP insurance has rocketed in recent years, that more people are buying GAP insurance than ever before and that we provide policies to people all across the UK.

We can tell you all these things... but sometimes it's just better to show you. So here goes...

Where we cover

We have policyholders all over the UK.

Cover and claim statistics

To our knowledge we're still the only GAP insurance provider which publishes claim statistics. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have been toying with the idea of making it compulsory for GAP insurance claim statistics to be published by all providers - we've been doing it for years though.
