In the event your Bentley is declared a total loss due to an accident, theft, or natural disaster, your insurance company might reimburse you only for your vehicle’s assessed value. As a result, there could be a significant gap between what your insurer pays and the balance you owe on your retail installment sales contract plus your insurance deductible.

Bentley Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) safeguards you by waiving the difference between your primary insurance settlement and the outstanding balance on your vehicle’s financing.

Leasing your Bentley should be an exciting, carefree experience. And Bentley Lease-End Protection makes turning in your vehicle at lease-end smooth and simple by waiving up to $7,500 of covered excess wear charges.
