ALA Gap Insurance

ALA Gap Insurance is pleased to offer University of Wales Alumni 10% off, when purchased from the ALA Website.

Gap insurance covers you for the difference between what you paid for your car and the amount that the vehicle is currently worth. This is invaluable in the case of a total loss of your vehicle since insurance companies will only pay out the current market value of the vehicle which will be considerably less than you paid for it.

To take advantage of this great offer simply enter the code ALUMNI when you make your online purchase, visit www.ala.co.uk
