Comprehensive Insurance

When obtaining a loan for a car it’s a legal requirement for this vehicle to be comprehensively insured whilst under finance. This protects you and the financier if an accident was to occur.

There are many options so please be sure to talk to one our trained consultants about what’s important to you when is comes to comprehensive insurance.

GAP Insurance

Security Shortfall (GAP) Insurance protects you as a borrower by paying the shortfall amount owing to your credit provider or bank if, in the event that you have a total loss due to accident, theft or damage, and the amount received from your comprehensive insurer is inadequate to finalise the loan on your vehicle.

Such a gap exists because, in most cases, you initially borrow more than the vehicle’s market value (Registration cost, stamp duty, dealer delivery charges, comprehensive insurance etc) and the outstanding principal on your loan falls relatively slower than the value of your vehicle in the initial period of the loans term. Sometimes the quantum of this gap can run into many thousands so it’s important you consider this product to ensure you are adequately protected. For most vehicles purchased, the maximum exposure to this gap will occur from the date of purchase to around the 2nd or 3rd year through a standard loan of 60 months as illustrated in the graph shown.

When you borrow money to purchase a vehicle you may be exposed to an equity gap. This gap is the difference between the insured value of your vehicle and the outstanding principal on your loan.

You can only purchase Gap Insurance when you enter into a new finance contract at the time of a vehicle purchase and the vehicle must be comprehensively insured.

Benefits of Security Shortfall Insurance (Gap Insurance)
  • Protects your finances and credit rating in the event your vehicle is declared a total loss due to theft or accident
  • Gap Insurance can be easily financed into most loans
  • You can purchase Gap Insurance independently of your current comprehensive insurer
  • Most GAP insurance policies also compensate you with an additional cash benefit

Consumer Credit Insurance (CCI)

Consumer Credit Insurance or Loan Protection Insurance protects you, as the borrower, in the advent of accident, sickness, involuntary unemployment, death and sometimes trauma. If you are unable to work due to accident, sickness or involuntary unemployment, CCI insurance will cover your loan repayments for a stated period of time or until you are able to return to work. In the advent of death, the credit contract may be repaid in full.

Benefits of Consumer Credit Insurance (CCI)
  • Protects your finances in the event of accident, sickness, involuntary unemployment, or death. If available and selected by you, you may also be covered for trauma
  • CCI can be easily financed into most loan contracts.
  • A CCI policy can be tailor made to accommodate the areas that you feel most at risk
  • Offers financial security in the event of the unfortunate occurring
  • In the event of Death, the typical life component will pay the outstanding balance of the credit contract up to a specified maximum value
  • In the event of Disablement, the typical disability component will pay the lesser of the regular monthly loan repayment for the period of disability up to a specified limit
  • In the event of Involuntary Unemployment, the typical unemployment component will pay the lesser of the regular monthly loan repayments for 90 days or a designated maximum value per claim. There is also usually a cap on the maximum benefit payable for the entire period of the policy.
  • You only pay for the portion of the cover you use as it is automatically rebated when the loan is repaid in full (section 148 of the National Credit Code & regulation 94 of the Regulations)
The National Credit Code regulates the conduct of authorised representatives selling Consumer Credit Insurance. Under the National Credit Code;
  • you cannot be forced to take out CCI insurance,
  • you cannot be forced to take out CCI insurance with a particular insurer,
    the maximum commission allowed to be paid by the insurer is 20% of the premium (excluding government charges),
