Nissan is one of the world’s biggest automotive companies with a reputation for great value and dependability. Recent years have seen Nissan introduce innovative hybrid concepts and adventurous styling to its collection in the form of crossover SUVs like the Qashqai and Juke.
However, dependable, or not, nearly half a million cars are written off in the UK every year, so it makes sense to protect yourself accordingly. GAP Insurance is a great way to ensure that you aren’t caught short in the event of a write-off. No one likes to contemplate the worst-case scenario, but the facts are hard to ignore.
Why do I need Nissan GAP insurance?
You may be happy with your car insurance policy but there’s a very good chance it will come up short if your car is written off or stolen. Especially if you expect to claim its full value. Most insurers only pay out the current market value of a car in such circumstances. This almost always well short of the price you’d have to pay for a new like-for-like replacement.
It’s therefore important to consider depreciation. This, sadly, tends to kick in the moment your shiny new Nissan departs the showroom forecourt. After three years, your car will likely have decreased in value by 60%. So, the insurance pay-out on a three-year-old Nissan is likely to be around 60% less than the price you paid for it.
If you purchased a new Nissan Qashqai for £25,000, its value may have dropped to £10,000 three years later. Therefore, the insurance pay-out on a three-year-old Qashqai in the event of a write-off could be £15,000 less than the price you paid for it.

Essentially, GAP Insurance covers the gap between a depreciation diminished pay-out and the price of a shiny new replacement car. You can learn more in our GAP Insurance guide.

GAP cover makes even more sense if you’re paying for your car with a leasing arrangement or PCP financing. Both could leave you exposed to considerable debt in the event of a write-off.
