Q: What other types of coverage should I get if I am going to be leasing a car?
May 03, 2021

I know I need full coverage, but is there any extra coverage I should add at the dealership or with my insurance company?

“Something to consider with a leased vehicle is gap insurance.

If you owe more on your lease buyout than the vehicle is worth, gap insurance would cover the difference. Gap insurance is normally available through your lender, your dealership, or car insurance companies.

You’ll also want to make sure you’re properly covered with your insurance company. Having comprehensive coverage and collision coverage is important, but you also want to make sure your personal assets are protected. Your coverage limits need to be high enough to protect your finances if you’re ever in an accident.

If you decide to get gap insurance through your car insurance carrier or raise your coverage limits, you should shop around. Requesting car insurance quotes online will ensure that you’re finding the best deal on the coverage you need.

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!
