ALA Smart GAP Insurance QuotesQUOTE ME
One of the most famous producers of microcars and subcompacts, Smart cars are excellent for both city and urban driving.
Their small stature and economic running costs make them ideal for parking in tight spaces and covering short journeys.
The range of Smart cars available has grown in the past decade or so, with coupe, cabrio, electric and even options that seat four people now available. If you’ve just bought a brand-new or used model, or are preparing to purchase one soon, Smart GAP insurance is essential to protect your new vehicle and finances.
With GAP insurance, Smart car owners can ensure that they don’t lose out financially should the worst happen and their vehicle is written off. It may be in an accident, fire, flood damage or stolen. In such an event, most insurers provide a settlement based on the current value of the car when it was written off.
At ALA, the GAP insurance Smart car owners can take out covers the difference between what an insurer will pay out and the amount originally paid for the vehicle. Polices are available whether you paid for the car outright, on finance, with a personal loan, contract hire or lease agreement.
