Q: Do companies allow you to add gap insurance after you've purchased your vehicle?
Apr 30, 2021

I thought I read somewhere that only a few states offer gap insurance. Is this true? Am I still able to add gap insurance after I've already purchased my vehicle?

“While most lenders and dealerships require that you add on gap insurance at signing, most major car insurance carriers will allow you to add gap insurance after purchase.

Travelers, Allstate, and Progressive are all carriers that offer some form of gap insurance. You may also see it listed as loan/lease coverage.

There are some states that regulate gap insurance through their Department of Insurance and Financial Services, but it shouldn’t impact your ability to get it.

As you shop around for coverage, remember that each carrier has different terms and conditions. Be sure to read over the coverage to be sure it meets your needs. “

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
