How can you have GAP insurance on an uninsured car? You have to have a basic policy to add this.

actually the terms of my GAP insurance stipulate coverage of a total loss even without primary coverage. that surprised me, but it states "if there is no primary insurance at the time of loss, actual cash value shall mean the retail value of the vehicle...". this raises some interesting issues about not carrying collision, but as GAP only covers the difference between book value and loan balance under the condition of a total, and in NJ at least, to have a car loan you must carry collision, the point seems rather moot. maybe other states don't require collision with a car loan [but I doubt it]...in any event, GAP wouldn't cover anything less than a total loss.

A little twist to your question.

What is uninsured insurance?

In auto insurance, 'uninsured insurance' refers to a type of coverage for accidents caused by a motorist without insurance or hit-and-run accidents in which the driver who caused the wreck cannot be identified. In other words, your insurance may cover the cost of damage to your car, medical expenses, and other expenses. http://www.superpages.com/supertips/what-is-uninsured-or-underinsured-motorist-coverage.html

Does your insurance cover your car when an uninsured driver is driving and have a wreck?

It really depends on the type of coverage you have. Normally if that person had permission to drive the vehicle, you have full coverage/collision insurance, and that person was at fault your insurance will cover damages. If someone else caused the accident, you would still receive damages from their insurance if they were insured. Sometimes however the driver's insurance would cover your damages under certain circumstances. As always, it is really best to ask your insurance carrier or refer to your most recent coverage letter from the company.

Who is it that doesn't have insurance (your, or the 'other' person)? If you don't have insurance and are at fault there is no way you can receive any money for the car. If ther other person involved is missing insurance then you will still be covered if you pay for collision or uninsured motorist.

If you get into a wreck and you were the one in fault and the other person does not have insurance what will happen to them and will your insurance cover it?

Every state is different. Where I live, if you are the responsible party in the wreck then your insurance has to repair the vehicle that you hit. You will be responsible for paying your deductible to have your vehicle fixed. Also the driver without insurance will be ticketed by the authorities if they are present.
