Volkswagen Interesting Facts

Other Information


Volkswagen are one of the most stolen car brands in the UK, with the Volkswagen Polo ranking as the 4th most stolen car, according to the DVLA.

It isn’t just luxury cars that attract thieves; trusty, reliable brands such as Volkswagen can still fall victim. By choosing GAP insurance for a Volkswagen car, you can prepare should the worst happen to your vehicle.

Volkswagen GAP Insurance from ALA can be there to bridge the gap between your comprehensive insurer’s market value settlement in the event of a total loss, and either the original amount you paid for the car, the amount the car costs to replace, or any outstanding finance at the time of a write off if this is the higher figure. If the car is on a contract hire or lease agreement, ALA will cover the amount of outstanding rentals on the car at the time of the write off as well as any difference in residual value.

Not only will a Volkswagen GAP Insurance policy from ALA cost significantly less than a dealer-bought policy, but you’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a top-quality policy to protect your vehicle. With ALA, you can also choose optional extra coverage to support your GAP insurance policy, such as Tyre and Alloy Wheel Insurance and Deposit Protection if you took out a contract hire agreement.
