It's worth $20,000 on the lot...but only $15,000 on the street! Your NEW car becomes a USED car as soon as you drive it off the lot. If the value of your car is less than the balance of your auto loan, you're "upside down," and there is a gap that isn't covered by standard auto insurance. This difference requires a special type of protection called GAP coverage.

How GAP coverage works:

  • Amount you owe on your auto loan: $20,000
  • Your car's "actual cash value" at the time of loss: $15,000
  • What the insurance company pays after the deductible: $14,500
  • GAP helps waive: $5,500

What is GAP? Peace of mind!

If your vehicle is ever totaled or stolen, your primary insurance will usually pay only the current market value of your vehicle, less your deductible. If the actual cash value is less than your current loan amount, the result could be a financial gap where you must pay the difference between your loan balance and your insurance settlement. This could mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket.

Help eliminate this possible out-of-pocket burden with GAP.

  • Help ensure peace of mind that you will not continue to owe for a vehicle you can't drive
  • Help protect your credit rating

Do you need GAP protection?

A car starts depreciating as soon as you buy it, but never more than when you drive it off the lot - turning it from a "new" car to a "used" car. To estimate the anticipated depreciation and potential GAP risk, please contact Peach State and ask to receive a GAP Risk Illustration through the VisualGAP system.

Additional Benefit
GAP Coverage at Peach State also includes an Auto Deductible Reimbursement:
The Auto Deductible Reimbursement will pay up to $1,000 per loss (unlimited losses per year) when a loss is filed and paid by your auto insurance company for a covered auto that you own or lease as evidenced by the title, registration or loan document. It insures your auto under an Auto Insurance Policy designating you as the named insured. Filing your claim is simple and easy – just call 877.296.4892 or visit www.assuranceplus.com/claims to get started!

In addition to offering new, used, and refinanced auto loans, we also offer Extended Vehicle Service Contracts through Warrantech Warranty Corporation for your auto, truck, or van. Get peace of mind and protection against expensive, unexpected automotive repair costs when you purchase an Extended Vehicle Service Contract.

Buy an Extended Vehicle Service Contract for less than the cost at most dealerships and enjoy:

  • Coverage of most major components in the event of a breakdown
  • No-hassle Direct Payment: no reimbursement forms

Why purchase an Extended Vehicle Service Contract?

Did you know that 81% of credit union members who purchase a service contract will have at least one mechanical breakdown? Extended coverage can help you save money if your car ever needs to be repaired and your manufacturer’s warranty has expired. In addition, it could help if you re-sell your vehicle. Pre-owned car buyers look more favorable upon a vehicle that comes with coverage. It represents a vehicle that has likely been well maintained by its owner. Should the buyer of the vehicle decline the option to transfer your coverage, you can cancel and apply for a pro-rated refund.
