<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">If you are thinking of taking out a GAP insurance product then we've managed to secure a great deal on already heavily discounted insurance policies taken out through ALA.
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">As an example a quote I've received from the dealer offers GAP at £399. A quote through ALA for cover comes in at well under half that!
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">Antara Owners Club members will receive a 5% discount too - just follow the link below:

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">Have you thought about gap insurance?
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">From the moment you drive your car away from the dealer forecourt its value automatically depreciates. This depreciation will increase drastically over the course of you owning that car.
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">You may not be aware but should the worst happen and your vehicle is stolen or is involved in an accident where it is damaged beyond repair, even if you have fully comprehensive insurance, you will only receive the current market value as a payout from that insurer.
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">This could result in a shortfall of up to two-thirds of the value of the vehicle in as little as 3 years. Crucially a motor insurance company may not pay enough to settle the outstanding finance on the vehicle.
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">By purchasing GAP insurance this shortfall can be prevented. A GAP policy covers the difference in price between the initial price paid for a car and the market value payout by your comprehensive insurance company. It therefore ensures that you don't suffer the financial loss otherwise associated with the loss of your car through theft or irreparable damage.
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">Are you thinking this will never happen to you?.........
<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;"><ul>[*]UK Car Crime is a third of all crime[*]A vehicle is stolen every minute, 33% of these are never recovered[*]Cars depreciate by up to 77% over a 3 year period[*]Motor insurance settlements are always less than the price you pay for your car[*]When a write off occurs you lose out and have to raise the funds for any short fall[*]Write offs occur all too often; protect yourself![/list]Why ALA?

<div style=": rgb251, 251, 253;">Market Value Clause
Make sure there isn't one! This clause means that the GAP company will only pay from the Glass's Guide Retail value. If your Comprehensive Insurer settles for less, you could well end up with a shortfall.ALAdoes not have one.


Maximum Value Clause
You don't want one of these either! This means that the value of your car is typically capped at 105% of Glass's Guide Retail value. If you have added some extras, which is very common, these extras may not be covered under your GAP policy.ALAdoes not have one.


Free Transfer
Of any unused premium and FREE policy amendments.ALA offers this.


Claim Period
If you have ever suffered a Total Loss Claim, you will know the level of stress it can cause, you may even forget to contact the GAP Insurer straight away. The better policies will give you 120 days to make a claim, lesser policies limit this to 30 days.ALAoffers 120 days.


UK Registered Insurers
Buying from a UK insurer means that it is directly authorised and regulated by the FSA, which in turn offers you policy protection under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, will give you the security you need. Other GAP providers use off-shore insurers, who, although licensed to sell GAP Insurance in the UK, ultimately can step away from their obligations without redress.ALAare UK registered.

I've looked into this and this GAP is probably one of the best around for the money.

Very good deal thank you, certainly a lot better than what 'Drive' were offering me.

Same here, half the price! I wondered if this offer was still valid but I can confirm it is and works fine.
