What happens if there is an accident and my vehicle is written off?
We require for your protection and ours that your car is comprehensively insured at all times. In the event of an accident you should submit a claim to your insurer. Please note you must continue to pay normal monthly instalments pending determination of your claim. If the car is not insured, we will take possession of the vehicle and sell it at public auction. You will continue to be liable for the difference between the net sales proceeds received from the vehicle and the insurer’s settlement amount. Our Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) product can cover you for such shortfalls. For more information on GAP click here
