Consider the significant benefits of Motorpoint Asset Protection

Imagine your vehicle is declared a write-off by your insurer due to an accident, flood, fire or theft. Now imagine discovering that your insurance company settlement will not match the original price you paid for your vehicle. This is a scenario faced by motorists every day. Even if you are not liable, you are almost certain to find a shortfall between the amount you receive in settlement and the price you originally paid. This shortfall could be a significant sum depending on the market value offered by your insurer at the time of the total loss.

Who will protect you against this financial loss?

For peace of mind and for the protection your vehicle needs, consider the cover Motorpoint Asset Protection can offer.

How Motorpoint Asset Protection works

Motorpoint Asset Protection incorporates Return to Invoice cover (or RTI) and Finance Guaranteed Asset Protection (or Finance GAP). 

RTI is designed to pay-out any difference between the settlement made by your motor insurance company and the price you originally paid for the vehicle. 

If your vehicle is written off, Finance GAP pays the difference between the settlement made by your motor insurance company and the amount you still owe on your finance agreement. 

Motorpoint Asset Protection covers you however you paid for the vehicle and will pay out the greater of the Finance GAP or RTI amount, up to the purchase price of the vehicle. However, there are specific exclusions (please see below). 

The following information confirms important aspects of your policy. You should read and understand them and ensure that you can and will continue to meet any eligibility criteria before deciding to purchase.

If during the first year of cover, the vehicle is written off and you get a replacement vehicle on a “new for old” basis, you can transfer the remaining duration of the policy to your replacement vehicle free of charge. You may then subsequently, at any time, transfer any remaining period of insurance on the policy due to a further change of vehicle, on payment of an administration fee of £35, as long as the replacement vehicle falls within the price range specified in your policy schedule. 

Cancellable – (terms and conditions – Section 6 ‘Cancellation’) 

If, for any reason, you wish to cancel your policy and you do so within 30 days, and no claim has been registered with Fortegra during this time, we’ll give you a full refund.
