Have you considered getting GAP insurance for your next lease car?

carwow has partnered with MotorEasy to provide GAP insurance. GAP insurance covers the difference between the amount you owe on your car if you have a leasing agreement, and the amount an insurance company would give you if your car is declared a total loss or write-off. This can protect you financially from a shortfall of potentially thousands of pounds. MotorEasy is offering a 15% discount to all carwow customers who take out GAP insurance with them.
