Other Ways to Get Gap Insurance
When you’re purchasing or leasing a new car, the dealership or lender may offer to add gap insurance to your loan or lease. This may be a good choice if your existing insurance company doesn’t offer gap insurance, but remember that if the cost is added to your loan or lease, you will pay interest on that charge.
Many car insurance companies also offer gap insurance as an optional add-on to your existing car insurance policy. Purchasing gap insurance through your insurer is usually the cheapest option.
