Lets say car is written off just after year 2 and I still have £4.5k to pay on the finance and the car is valued at £20k. So my insurance company will give me £20k - £4.5k to pay off finance = £15.5k. £15k is then need to pay the residual value of the car and that leaves me with £500 left plus another £15k from GAP insurance. And with £15.5k this will not get me another £30k car or am I missing something?
Once the finance is paid off you don't need to pay the residual value as the agreement is at an end. You get £15.5k plus £15k GAP.
