Shortfall Plus Cover

Why Choose Shortfall Plus Cover?

Your car’s value depreciates over time, and a Comprehensive Insurance Policy will only pay out the value at the time of loss. This means you might have to finance the shortfall. 

Our Shortfall Plus policy protects you if your outstanding loan amount is higher than your car’s value when it is stolen and not recovered or damaged beyond economical repair. This is a standalone policy that is purchased in addition to a Volkswagen Comprehensive Insurance Policy.

Policy Benefits

Shortfall Plus Cover

This benefit provides cover if your car is a total loss due to theft, hijacking or accidental damage and the outstanding loan balance is more than your car’s value at time of loss.

Bodyline Maintenance Cover

This optional benefit provides cover in the event of minor damages such as dents or scratches to your car. 

Loyalty Bonus

This benefit provides cover so that if your car is stolen and not recovered or damaged beyond economical repair, we will pay a fixed amount of R10 000  towards your new Volkswagen (if you replace your car within three months from an approved Volkswagen dealer).
