Founded in 1899, Fiat has grown into one of the world's most respected manufacturers. Still Italy's biggest car company and the largest in Europe for much of the 20th century, Fiats are known for combining affordable prices and reliable performance with a hint of Italian flair.
Whatever Fiat you drive, you need to make sure that you are properly insured. Even with a fully comprehensive policy, you might find yourself out of pocket in the event of a claim. This is because cars depreciate in value as the years go by, and your insurer may only cover you for your car's current value.
Being involved in an accident is stressful at the best of times and the last thing you need is to discover that your insurance won't cover the original cost of your car. The best way to protect yourself from this potential headache is to take out Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) insurance.
What is Fiat gap insurance?
Fiat gap insurance covers you for any shortfall between your car's original purchase price and its value at the time of a claim. It offers that all-important peace of mind, so you can take to the road in complete confidence. It also offers protection if you are paying for your vehicle via a finance agreement, so you won’t have to worry about spending money on a car you can no longer use. Instead, any outstanding payments will be covered by your Fiat gap insurance.

How long does Fiat gap insurance last?

Is Fiat gap insurance worth it?
Let’s say that you bought a new Fiat Tipo for £15,000 and that a couple of years later its value had depreciated to £11,000. If your vehicle were to be written off or stolen at that stage, the settlement from your insurers would be in line with its worth at that time, rather than what you had originally paid for it. In this example, you’d be left £4,000 out of pocket, but with Fiat gap insurance you’d be covered for that shortfall. With quotes starting from just £69, we believe it’s a small price to pay.
What additional cover is available?
We can also offer protection for the wheels, tyres and bodywork of your Fiat. Find out more about:
Please note that these policies can only be taken out in conjunction with Fiat gap insurance from Direct Gap, and cannot be purchased separately.
