How Much is Gap Insurance?

Men Shaking Hands

After you buy a new or used car in Warwick, you have a lot of insurance coverage options to consider. You may find yourself asking, “How much is gap insurance and what does it cover?” Gap insurance cost depends on how you acquire it. Generally, Providence drivers have two options: purchase gap insurance from their insurer or add it onto their auto loan. Learn more about the gap insurance price and whether it’s worth it!

Average Cost of Gap Insurance

Again, the average cost of gap insurance varies depending on who it’s purchased from. Here’s an overview of your options:

  • Purchase from your current auto insurer: Usually, gap insurance costs about $20 per year when you purchase from your regular auto insurer, i.e. the same insurer who provides your comprehensive and collision insurance.
  • Add gap insurance onto your car loan: Many lenders give borrowers the option of adding gap insurance onto their car loans. Choosing this option usually means you’ll pay one flat fee for coverage, as opposed to yearly payments. Costs range from around $500 to $700.
  • Purchase standalone gap insurance: Depending on your insurer, you may not be able to get gap insurance as part of your overall insurance plan. Instead, you may be able to purchase it on its own. In this case, the average cost of gap insurance is a one-time fee of $200 to $300.

Gap Insurance: Is it a Worthy Investment?

Chances are gap insurance will be easy to work into your budget. Whether you shoot for paying $20 per year or one flat fee, you can commute through East Greenwich in confidence. Here are a few reasons why adding this bit of extra coverage is a great idea, whether you have a new or used car:

  • Should your vehicle ever be stolen or damaged in an accident and deemed a “total loss,” gap insurance will cover you.
  • If you get into an accident and you owe more on your auto loan than what the car is worth, you’ll be covered under gap insurance.
