Guaranteed Finance Protection

Cover the shortfall between your insurance and outstanding loan balance

What is Guaranteed Finance Protection?

Many of us take out a loan to pay for our vehicle, and it’s prudent to have at least Third Party Insurance to cover other vehicles or property in the even of an accident.

But what happens if your vehicle is damaged beyond repair or written off by your insurance company? You could be left without a car, and you’d still have the balance of your loan to pay. Guaranteed Finance Protection (GFP) could save you from a hefty financial burden by covering the outstanding balance of your car loan.

Why would I need GFP?

Why would I need GFP?

Consider this scenario…

Your car has been written off, either by theft or being damaged beyond repair. Your insurer agrees to pay market value for your vehicle, which is $9,000 at the time, but you still owe $12,500 on your loan. That leaves you liable for the $3,500 balance on your car loan.

With Autolife GFP, this amount would be covered under the policy, and you would no longer owe the finance company any money!
