Motorhome GAP Insurance
What is Motorhome GAP Insurance?
With ALA Motorhome GAP insurance, whether you have an ACE or a WildAx or anything in between, we will protect you financially in the event your vehicle is declared a total loss.
Although motorhomes don’t tend to depreciate as quickly as most other vehicles, they are often more expensive to buy initially and even a small amount of depreciation on such a costly vehicle can mean that you are left out of pocket following a total loss.
Back to Invoice Plus will pay the difference between your motor insurer’s market value settlement and either the original invoice price of your vehicle or the outstanding finance, whichever is the higher amount at the time.
Vehicle Replacement Plus will instead cover the difference between the market value settlement from your insurer and the replacement cost of another vehicle matching the original, even if that cost is higher. If the finance owing at the time of the claim is more than the cost of replacing the vehicle, we will pay up to that amount instead.
Mind the GAP! Avoid a potential shortfall...
Do I need Motorhome GAP?
With Motorhome Return to Invoice, the answer to this is yes, if you want to:
- Protect against the depreciating value of your vehicle
- Receive enough money from your motor insurer and the GAP policy so that you can pay any outstanding finance balance AND have the remaining funds to use as you wish
- If you own your vehicle outright, you have the entire original invoice value to use as you wish
With Motorhome Vehicle Replacement, the answer to this is yes, if you want to:
- Protect the value of your motorhome, not just the amount you paid for it – this means you’re not out of pocket due to vehicle price increases
