Retail Waiver is pretty much the same as GAP Insurance. It may pay the difference between the balance of a loan due to a vehicle and what your insurance company pays if the car is considered a covered total loss.
If the waiver is financed, it provides you with a range of options should you be unable to repay the loan because of Death, Accident, Sickness, Redundancy, Hospitalisation or Terminal Illness. For more details please see AFD Waivers T & C’s or contact us.
