GAP is the difference between a car's actual cash value (ACV) and how much a driver owes on it. GAP insurance will cover the amount on a loan that is the difference between the asset value and the amount covered by another insurance policy in the event of a total loss

Gap insurance covers the difference between the actual value of the vehicle and its current market value.

That's not correct. GAP coverage protects a borrower/lessee from financial loss if a financed/leased vehicle is determined to be a total loss as the result of a collision or other covered peril and the claim value is less than the remaining loan balance. Primary insurance + GAP coverage = 100% of the unpaid loan balance, which is very likely to be considerably higher than the difference between ACV and Market Value.
