At Marriott Volkswagen we understand the importance of protecting your assets when it comes to high-involvement purchases, such as a car. Our combined Guaranteed Asset Protection incorporates Return on Invoice cover (RTI) and Finance Guaranteed Asset Protection (Finance Asset Protection). Taking out this protection policy ensures you are covered in the unfortunate event that your vehicle is written off.
RTI is designed to pay the difference between a settlement made by your vehicle insurance provider and the original cash price paid for the vehicle after a write off.
Finance Asset Protection pays the difference between the settlement made by your vehicle insurance provider and the amount outstanding on the finance agreement - often known as a settlement figure.
No matter how you paid for your vehicle, the Combined Guaranteed Asset Protection will pay out the greater option of the RTI or Finance Asset Protection amount, up to the purchase price of the vehicle. (Exclusions apply).
If you paid £18,500 for your vehicle and it is written off, the insurance company will pay out the vehicle value at the time of the write off, for example £12,000. An RTI pay-out of £6,500 will top it up to the price you originally paid.
If at the time of the write off, you owe £19,200 on your finance agreement. The insurance company pays out £12,000 (value at the time). A Finance Asset Protection pay-out of £7,200 makes up the difference.
|Asset Protection Pay-out||£7,200|
As with all insurance policies there are some circumstances for which Combined Guaranteed Asset Protection will unfortunately not cover you. You must have in place a fully comprehensive motor insurance policy issued by an authorised UK motor insurer which insures against accidental loss and/or damage to the vehicle throughout the period of insurance. In the event your motor insurer rejects your claim and a settlement payment is not made you will not be covered by this policy.
Any recoverable Value Added Tax (VAT) where you are VAT registered.
Additional costs within the finance settlement for anything other than the purchase of the vehicle. This includes but is not limited to; administration charges, option to purchase charges, late payment charges and arrears, early settlement charges.
Which means any sum outstanding from a previous finance agreement, transferred to the new vehicle finance agreement.
