Owned by Volkswagen’s Audi group, Seat forms part of one of the largest car manufacturing consortiums in Europe. It produces an impressive line-up, ranging from city runarounds to practical MPVs like the Alhambra, all the way up to the much-lauded Cupra range. This solid heritage makes Seat a desirable and valuable brand.
Unfortunately, even a high-class model like a Seat is not immune to accidents or fire damage, and their quality can sometimes make them a target for thieves. If something like that happens to your vehicle and it’s declared a total loss, you’ll likely be left with a settlement in line with its current market value. But what if you paid much more than that for the car in the first place? You could stand to lose out financially, which is where Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) insurance comes in.
What is Seat gap insurance?
Seat gap insurance is designed to bridge the difference between what you originally paid for your car and what insurers will pay out in the event of it being declared a total loss. And if you have a finance or lease agreement, it covers circumstances where the settlement is not enough to cover the outstanding amount, which means you won’t be forced to pay money for a car that is no longer driveable. Seat gap insurance offers peace of mind that whatever happens, you will not be left out of pocket.

Is Seat gap insurance worth it?
Let’s say that you purchased a new Ibiza for £16,000 and after a few years its worth had depreciated to £10,000. If you were to then have an accident where the vehicle was written off, your insurers would offer a settlement equal to its market value at that time and you could be left £6,000 out of pocket. However, a Seat gap insurance policy means you would be covered for that difference and so, with quotes starting from just £69, we believe it’s an investment worth making just in case.
