The largest car manufacturer in South Korea and the country's second-biggest company after Samsung, Hyundai has gone from strength to strength in recent years. Since its foundation in 1966, the brand has become popular the world over thanks to its innovative designs and competitive prices.
Hyundai cars are famously reliable, but things can still go wrong. If you are involved in an accident, you might discover that your insurance won't cover you for the original cost of your vehicle. Cars depreciate in value, and most insurers will only reimburse you for its value at the time of a claim. This can leave you out of pocket to the tune of several thousand pounds. Luckily, there is an easy way to avoid this – by taking out Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) insurance.
What is Hyundai gap insurance?
A Hyundai gap insurance policy will make up any shortfall between your car's original value and its worth at the time of a claim. It’s a specialist form of cover that offers priceless peace of mind whenever you get behind the wheel. Should the worst happen, and your vehicle is written off in an accident, or stolen, a Direct Gap policy will ensure you’re not left to take a significant financial hit. And if you’re paying for your car via monthly instalments, Hyundai finance gap insurance will cover any outstanding payments.

Is Hyundai gap insurance worth it?
Let’s say that you bought a new Hyundai Tucson for £20,000 and had it for a couple of years before it was written off in an accident or stolen. However, by this point its value has depreciated to £15,000, which is what your insurers offer as a settlement. That means you’re £5,000 out of pocket - but with this type of policy, you’re covered for that difference.
And the same goes if you have payments still to make to your finance provider – Hyundai motor finance gap insurance will make sure you’re not forking out for a car you can no longer use. With quotes starting from just £69, we think it’s well worth it.
