What is gap insurance?

Gap insurance is auto insurance that protects you if your vehicle is totaled, but you end up owing more on your car than what it is worth. This can happen if you are unable to make a large down payment when you purchase your new Audi vehicle. Or, if you finance a car for a lengthier period of time, it’s a good idea since your loan for your vehicle can outweigh its worth.

Gap insurance is also necessary when you decide to lease a new Audi vehicle. Since you can lease a new vehicle for a very competitive price, it’s always necessary to secure gap insurance in case an accident should occur since you would still be responsible for the vehicle’s total cost.
