Usually you can cancel the Gap insurance anytime you want. You should be refunded money too depending on when you purchased it. Gap Insurance has nothing to do with Auto Insurance. Gap Insurance is just something that you purchase “usually from the dealer” to protect you if your upside down in your loan.
Say you owe $Five,000 on your vehicle, but it’s only worth $Trio,000. If you have an accident and it’s totaled out. Your insurance company is going to give you only what it’s worth. So you would get $Three,000 from your insurance company. The Gap insurance would cover the “GAP” inbetween what is owed and what you got from the insurance company.
Because your still going to owe the bank another $Two,000 for a vehicle that is totaled out. Gap insurance can sometimes be difficult to cancel, and they sometimes they will give you a hard time about it.. But just read the paperwork that you got when you purchased your vehicle, usually it tells you on there how to cancel and if there are any fees involved.
Just keep in mind that Gap Insurance is not Auto Insurance, so you would need to have Auto Insurance regardless if you have the Gap Insurance.
What is the penalty if you have a gap from time you purchase a car from a dealer until you obtain auto insurance?
Improvised Dealer Gap insurance is considered the same as having no insurance at all. Most companies don’t recognize dealer gap insurance because they are only excess secondary coverage policies, No Liability coverage is generally included in them. Generally if you have a lapse of 30 days or more, or if you have had continuous coverage for less than 6 months, then you will pay Five to Ten percent more on premium. Beware of GAP Insurance, I’ve seen more than a few people who got burned on these after they discovered the gap only covered a portion of the vehicle and suggested no liability coverage for the driver..
As a Broker, I can tell you it truly depends on: the length of time, WHY the gap, your past record, and the individual underwriting policy for each insurer. Be SURE to tell any prospective broker/company of this gap or you could be without in the end!

What does gap auto insurance cover?
Physical harm coverage on an auto policy says that the insurance company has the option of paying to repair, substitute, or pay the actual cash value of the vehicle. In the case where the harm to a vehicle’s cost to repair is more than the ACV of the vehicle the vehicle is totalled and the company will pay the ACV of the vehicle. Sometimes when you buy a fresh vehicle without much or any downpayment you quickly get “upside down” in the loan. As the value of the car depreciates, the loan balance doesn’t fall almost as rapid. For the very first duo of years you owe more than the value of the vehicle. The insurance company has nothing to do with auto loan. GAP insurance was created to cover the difference in the ACV of the vehicle and the loan payoff. You can buy GAP insurance from the finance company or bank that financed the vehicle or from your insurance company. Purchasing from the insurance is much less expensive and you can drop the coverage once the loan balance falls below the value of the vehicle.

However, it is significant, before you do this, to have suitable fresh insurance in place. You need this for self-protection, and also because all states require compliance with Financial Responsibility Laws. These laws require the maintenance of auto insurance, and inn the event of noncompliance, your license and tags can be suspended. Additionally, if the car is financed, the bank or finance company will require proof of insurance to protect its interest in the collateral.

This is usually much more costly than naming the financier as a loss payee on your collision coverage through your own insurer.

What is the maximum charge for gap insurance through auto dealers in CT?
I’m sorry I don’t know if there is a legal maximum that auto dealers can charge for gap insurance. I do know that you need to speak with your auto insurance agent prior to purchasing gap coverage. When a dealer sells you gap coverage what they do is prepay the entire premium for the term of the loan and add that into the amount financed. After that you are charged whatever interest rate you pay on the vehicle. The auto dealer is paid a large commission for selling this gap coverage and receive all their money up front. Most auto insurance companies suggest the same coverage for a very petite premium that is simply an endorsement to be added onto your current policy. I think mine is about $6.50 for a six month period. You only need gap coverage for the very first duo of years that you own a fresh car. GAP pays for the difference inbetween the value of the car and the amount owed on the loan. After a duo of years the falling amount owed on the loan becomes less than the value of the car. If you purchase from the dealer you are prepaying for the entire Five or 6 year time of the loan period.
What can you do to get insurance since it was canceled?

How do you cancel an insurance claim?
As long as you have not received payment and cashed the check you can always tell your agent or the adjuster that you wish to withdraw the claim.

These days you only want to make claims for larger claims. Insurance is not for puny claims and it can actually do you more harm than good to make puny claims. Insurance companies track amount of claims as well as frequency of claims and either can hurt your record.
