    Could anyone recommend a company/broker that will sell you a decent Gap insurance policy?

    the likes of Gap Insurance - Featured by Which? | Buy Online with ALA will give a quick online quote.

    As to how 'decent' .... not heard many people talk about claims so that's harder to judge than simpler aspects such as the price.

    I bought GAP cover from ALA after seeing HonestJohn recommend it. I think it's very competitive and flexible.

    May be completely un-useful but when I was 16 I had a new Aprilia rs50 and obviously as a 16 year old..... Crashed it. I had gap insurance as an accident or theft was inevitable as it was new. They refused to pay out for the bike as my "injuries where not severe enough in comparison to the damage" the quote for repairs was £1600 nearly the value of the bike. I missed half my GCSE's as a result due to a busted back and leg., so where fairly severe. I did not contest it and bodged the bike back together just to get scooting about again as it was my lifeline being 16 and living in the middle of nowhere I may have got some ware if I did. It has just put me off GAP insurance all together tbh.

    My friend recently wrote off his Lexus, his Gap insurance paid up.
