Buy Gap Insurance for your Volkswagen.


If you are lucky enough to own or lease a Volkswagen, you will be interested to know that we can offer gap insurance for your VW at anything up to 75% less (in some cases even more) than the average cost of a main Volkswagen dealership policy. 


When you buy lower-priced Gap insurance for your Volkswagen, do you get inferior or poor-quality coverage?


With a Total Loss Gap Insurance Policy, No. Absolutely not - Lower-priced Gap insurance does not mean dilution in cover, legal protection, claims handling, customer service or backup.


Despite what you may have been led to believe from different sources, the price you pay for your gap insurance rarely reflects your level of coverage or protection. Instead, it is more just an indication of where you purchased your policy.


Differences in how we source our gap insurance policies, financially incentivise our team and differences in the rate of Insurance premium tax mean that when you buy a gap insurance policy directly from us at Total Loss Gap, the price will be lower. 


Again, we stress none of our gap insurance policies have hidden small print or get-out clauses. Every gap insurance policy available will have terms and conditions. We are proud of ours. We have worked hard with our underwriters to tailor-make policies and have, in the past, used your feedback to simplify wording. 


The type and level of cover that best suits your needs will depend not only on the age of your VW but also on how much it costs, how old it is, how you paid for it and what you are using it for.


Click for a quote, and our automated system will request that you answer some questions about your Volkswagen and circumstances. It will automatically eliminate policies you are either not eligible for or could not benefit from. 


Depending on the age of your Volkswagen and how long you have owned it, we can offer other policies, such as SmartCare, tyre and alloy wheel Insurance, and Excess Insurance. 


We can even offer a gap insurance policy for Volkswagen bought from auction or as a private sale ( terms and conditions apply ) 


Volkswagen was initially called "Kafer" and was formed as a development arm for the Nazi party. In 1937, the "Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH "was created. 


Gesellschaft zur Vorbereitung des Deutschen Volkswagens mbH then shortened it name to “Volkswagenwerk GmbH” in 1938 and built its main production plant in Wolfsburg Germany.


The start of the 2nd World War meant that production was switched from cars and vehicles for the general public to military vehicles.


At the war's end, the Britsh ordered Volkswagen to move away from military-style vehicles and instead concentrate on producing a saloon-style vehicle. In 1945, they launched the Type 1 (Käfer) model. The Type 2 (Transporter) was subsequently launched in 1950. 


The people's brand for the people and made by the people became a tangible symbol of a new Germany and an economic beacon of hope and renewal. 


New and exciting approaches to manufacturing heralded the launch of models such as the Passat, Scirocco, Golf and Polo.


In the 1980s, through advances in vehicle technology, flexible production, and forward-looking working practices, the brand expanded to a business model closer to the Volkswagen of today. 


Volkswagen adopted new technologies and manufacturing processes, which means more stylish, reliable and well-built vehicles for the global population. 


Volkswagen's growth was meteoric, and is now classed as one of if not the world's most successful volume car manufacturers. They have won far too many awards to mention and even had their models start in movies. Who could forget the twists and turns of the adventures of Herby?


It now offers a vehicle for everyone with over 18 models, 

  • Volkswagen ID 3, ID4, ID5 and already iconic ID Buzz
  • Volkswagen Tiguan, T Cross, T Roc & Tiago
  • Volkswagen Up, Polo & Golf
  • Volkswagen Tiguan, Touareg, Touran
  • Volkswagen Passat, and Areton 

Volkswagen is not content with building some of the most iconic cars ever models; it also owns and controls many manufacturers within its group.


  • Audi
  • Bentley
  • Bugatti
  • Ducati
  • Lamborghini
  • MAN
  • Porsche
  • Scania
  • Seat
  • Skoda
