Blog would like to say thanks

Like the launch of any new product in a market, great interest is stirred within the independent online providers. Of course this can lead to 'in depth' analysis of product terms by competitors to compare the relative strengths against their own products. Clearly this is also a process that has gone through before agreeing terms and conditions with our underwriters.


As part of the new Gap products, we had stated clearly that any claim would not be subject to a 'Market Value Clause', and had made clear reference to this on Press Releases and various articles and information on the website. This feature was agreed with our underwriters on prior to launch.


It was reported on the Gap Insurance comparison page on rival provider that they felt that the 'no Market Value Clause' feature on was not clear in the policy terms. They indicated that the products did indeed have such a clause in their comparison table.

As for their comment that a good reason to buy from them is that they are 'better looking', I would remind our competitors that the home of, GapInsurance123 and Easy Gap (Gap Towers as we like to call it) has been the base of two Hollywood film sets in the last 12 months, and that some of our office space was provided for dressing rooms for Hollywood stars such as Chris Pine and Keira Knightley in that time.


Your Gap Insurance policies may be pretty good but you cannot compete on the glamour stakes I are afraid!
