How will I know if my car has gap insurance?

I’ve paid off my car, I’m trying to make sure I’m saving money where I can. I don’t think I need gap insurance anymore. How can I check if I still have it?

Answer
Congrats on paying off your car!
Gap insurance is short for guaranteed asset protection, and it typically covers people who are still paying off or leasing their cars.
To check to see if you still have gap insurance, look at your policy details. You can find this through your provider’s online portal, or you can call your provider to check.
If you find you do still have gap insurance, you can cancel it the next time your policy is up for renewal. If that’s still a while from now, you may be eligible for a refund on your gap insurance, so check with your insurance contract.
