Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance*
Be sure to insure!
Imagine the inconvenience of being without your vehicle. Could you afford costly repairs, or replacing your vehicle altogether?

In addition, for all Toyota vehicles covered by the policy, we provide a Genuine Toyota parts guarantee and a lifetime guarantee on all repairs, provided you remain the owner of the vehicle.

Why is Asset Protection important?
A persons car, which has been financed, has been stolen, or damaged beyond repair. In other words it is a total loss. The comprehensive motor insurer pays the market or agreed value, but another $7,000 is needed to settle the loan in full.
Asset protection is designed to assist in this event. Cover is provided for ‘The Gap’ between the insurance payout and the loan balance up to $15,000 and the option of extra cover up to $3,000, for any additional costs due to the inconvenience of the total loss.
Why does the ‘gap’ occur?
Two factors are involved: borrowing to pay for various costs associated with buying a car (eg. Registration, on road costs, insurance premium etc), and the value falling faster than the loan balance.
How long is there a ‘gap’?
Generally, the maximum exposure to ‘the gap’ will occur from the day of delivery to perhaps the end of the second or third year of the loan and depends upon the term of the loan.
Is the premium payable each year?
No, there is only one premium to pay which will then provide cover for the duration of the term of the loan.
