Why should I purchase a vehicle warranty?

A vehicle warranty offers against the cost of parts and labour following a mechanical or electrical failure of an insured component. Cars are costly enough to maintain without any unforeseen costs resulting from a breakdown. Once your original manufacturer warranty runs out, you are on your own to take care of these expenses. Warranty Direct’s insured warranty cover protects you against the cost and hassle of unexpected vehicle failure, which is great for peace of mind and potentially your pocket. To give you an idea of the potential cost of repairing your vehicle, we have compiled some of the highest authorised repair bills paid by Warranty Direct in 2017. Did you know that Warranty Direct can help look after your vehicle for as little as £1 per day**?

** Based on a 3-year annual warranty policy with all levels of cover, capped labour rates, £50 excess and 0% parts contribution on a Mini Cooper SD 2015, mileage between 10,000 – 20,000 based in the RG1 postcode.

Why do I need GAP Insurance?

150,000 cars are stolen each year and two-thirds of these are taken with their keys, with just under half of the thefts of car keys stolen from the owner’s home during a burglary, and the majority of cars are never recovered***.

You might be a careful car owner but numerous "total loss claims" are caused by the action of third parties and your comprehensive motor insurance may not cover the full value of your car.

Protect yourself from the risk of financial loss with Warranty Direct GAP Cover Insurance.
