Can I get gap insurance with an unsecured loan?
I was offered an unsecured loan by my lender for my new car. I'm buying a new BMW and would like to add gap insurance. Since the loan is unsecured, will it disqualify me from adding gap insurance? Should I try to get a different loan?
“If you’re worried that you won’t qualify for gap insurance with your current carrier, you should reach out to your lender.
Unsecured loans are normally reserved for those with higher credit scores since they don’t require collateral. Your lender should be able, and willing, to provide you with another loan option that won’t hurt your chances of getting gap insurance.
If they aren’t willing to work with you, you may need to find a different lender or reach out to insurance carriers to find out if your loan will affect your ability to maintain gap insurance. “

Can I continue with an insurance claim after an accident if I sell my car?
I was in an accident and the car suffered some damage. I immediately filed a claim to get money for the repairs. However, my friend needs a car and is fairly handy with DIY mechanical repairs. Can I continue with the claim even after I sell my car to my friend?

As a teen, how much cheaper would it be to register for car insurance under my parents' plan instead of getting my own plan?
I'm 17 years old and I'm about to get my license. I've heard car insurance is really, really pricey for someone my age. Is it cheaper if I just go on my parents' plan vs. getting my own? My parents say I can do whatever is less expensive.
