When you truly love your BMW, you want to protect it in the best way. That’s why we created BMW Protect, our comprehensive range of insurance products designed to help maintain that sheer driving pleasure, whilst protecting you from damage costs.
Within our suite of BMW Protect products is BMW Shortfall Insurance, ensuring you’re not out of pocket if your BMW is written off due to an accident, theft or fire. BMW Shortfall Insurance is designed to bridge the gap between the motor insurance settlement and either the amount you paid for your BMW, or the outstanding amount due under your finance agreement if your BMW is declared a total loss, whichever is the higher amount. BMW Shortfall Insurance covers you against losing out in these tricky situations.
