Here's how Finance Gap Insurance works

  • You have cover option 2 with up to $15,000 cover for your outstanding loan balance and extra costs up to $4,000 . Your car is involved in an accident and is declared a total loss by your comprehensive car insurer. Your comprehensive car insurer pays the agreed value of $24,500 for your car. You’re also required to pay an excess of $600 to your comprehensive car insurer.
  • If the balance owing to your financier is $31,300, this leaves an outstanding loan balance of $6,800.
  • You finance your replacement car through Powertorque Finance, with a finance establishment fee of $500.
  • If the on-road costs associated with your replacement car amounted to $3,400 (including dealer delivery of $1,350, stamp duty of $1,500, registration fee of $270 and Compulsory Third Party of $280).
