The Audi range runs from compact hatchbacks to butch SUVs and racy roadsters. Regardless of the model, you'll be covering plenty of ground but always retaining the brand’s assured stylistic signifiers.
If you’re the proud owner of an Audi, then it stands to reason that you want to protect it, which is where GAP Insurance comes in.
Why do I need Audi GAP Insurance?
Insurance protects against all manner of motoring misfortune, from mechanical failure to theft.
Almost half a million cars are written off in the UK every year. Many motorists aren’t insured to cover the costs of a like-for-like replacement in such circumstances.
A car typically loses about 60% of its value over the three years after its original purchase. So, if your insurance policy only pays out the current value of your car, you’ll be some way short of the figure needed to replace your car with the same model.
Let’s imagine the car in question is an Audi A5 that cost you £40,000. If your Audi is written off or stolen three years later, you might be looking at a pay out of just £14,000. This assumes the value of the car has depreciated 60% in three years. Sadly, the prospect of simply buying a new replacement with your insurance pay-out is a non-starter.
Audi GAP Insurance with MotorEasy?
MotorEasy GAP Insurance offers an ingenious way to cover the disparity between a pay out and the cost of a new like-for-like replacement car. This allows you to claim back the original cost of your vehicle rather than its heavily depreciated market value.
A new Audi’s value will begin to drop the moment you drive it out of the dealership, so it’s easy to see why this cover makes sense to so many motorists. It offers the complete peace of mind you simply don’t get from a standard motor insurance policy.
Sometimes, it pays to consider the worst-case scenario, even if you probably don’t want to. Almost half a million cars are written off in the UK every year, so it makes sense to take extra measures to limit your risk.
The case for GAP cover is even more compelling if you’re paying for your car with a leasing arrangement or PCP financing. This could leave you exposed to considerable debt in the event of a write-off.
MotorEasy GAP Insurance is available for all cars up to 8 years old (or with up to 80,000 miles on the clock). It represents a smart, easy, and affordable way to remove these risks and enjoy your Audi to the full.

The importance of cover for car theft
No one wants to contemplate the threat of a write-off, but statistics suggest that it’s more common than you might imagine. More than half a million cars are written off in the UK each year. When you get GAP Insurance, it offers cover against more than just accidental damage. We also include cover against car theft, which accounts for many write-offs every year.
In fact, statistics show that the threat of car theft is on the rise. 112,174 motor vehicles were stolen in the UK in 2017/18, the equivalent of 307 every day! Sadly, that figure also represents a significant increase on previous years and the continuation of a 50% rise in car theft since 2014.
