What Is Car Gap Insurance

When buying a new, used or Certified Pre-Owned Honda, you may opt for gap insurance. Gap insurance is an optional coverage package that will cover the gap between the amount you owe on the car and the car’s actual cash value in the event of an accident that results in severe damage. Not every driver will need gap insurance coverage, but if you’re leasing or financing a vehicle it may be a good idea to ensure you don’t end up owing more later on.

As helpful as gap insurance can be, it doesn’t cover bodily injury or damaged property resulting from an accident. That’s why gap insurance can be a great option to get in addition to existing car insurance, but you’ll still need to pay your regular deductible before the insurance will activate.
