    Gap/Return To Invoice Insurance

    Why go for main dealer Gap insurance, it seems expensive compared to other options, but are they the same? Any thoughts or recommendations?

    When I bought my first A3 the gap insurance through the dealer was around £350, I thought it seemed a good deal as I had never heard of GAP insurance before then. I did some shopping around and found through Autotrader I could have the same deal but with an extra years coverage for £140 ish.
    Within 6 months I had written the car off but got back exactly what I had paid between Tesco insurance and Auto trader GAP insurance.
    Best £140 Id ever spent when you think Tesco were offering me nearly 4k less than the value I paid.

    Never go through the dealer unless they can match what you find. I once got return to invoice for £120 and 3 years! Found that using honest john... The dealer quoted £350 for the year!

    And also which third parties people are using, here's some comparisons taken out March this year...

    Some even cover your excess up to £250.

    It does seem to be a great peace of mind for relatively low price, as long as you don't buy it from the dealer...

    If you have any relatives who are civil servants you can join CSMA, used them before as dealer prices are over the top! Think I paid about £130 last time I took it out? Also you get free motor legal cover with membership.

    I have GAP on my car (2012 RR Sport) but as yet haven't taken it out on Mrs Beans A3 Cab, that said, I spoke with Aviva and RTI is included for the first year with their insurance, who we are with, so worth checking if you already have some sort of short term cover.
