What it is

Life can be perfect when you’re driving a Volkswagen, but it pays to be ready for the unexpected. After all, when the unexpected happens, it’s important to ensure that you have your Volkswagen to help you get to where you need to go. Volkswagen Protection Plus® Loan Protection is a Life, Critical Illness, Loss of Employment and Disability program designed to help you and your loved ones meet your financial obligations in the event of a life-altering event, illness, or death.

1. Life and Accidental Death

In the event of your death, Volkswagen Protection Plus Loan Protection Life and Accidental Death overage is designed to reduce or pay off the balance of your lease or loan to help ensure that the vehicle you purchased remains with your beneficiary or estate. Volkswagen Protection Plus Loan Protection helps alleviate worry about the potential loss of your vehicle as a result of a life-altering event.

2. Total Disability

In the event you are disabled for a covered medical reason, Volkswagen Protection Plus Loan Protection Total Disability covers your monthly lease or loan payments until you get back on your feet, regardless of whether the critical incident is at work, at home, or at play.

3. Accidental Disability and Involuntary Unemployment

In the event you are disabled due to an accident or if you find yourself unemployed through no fault of your own, Volkswagen Protection Plus Loan Protection Accidental Disability and Involuntary Unemployment covers your monthly lease or loan payments. This coverage helps keep you in the driver’s seat while finding new employment and returning to the job market.

What it is

To help replace your vehicle in the event of a vehicle loss, Volkswagen Protection Plus® Vehicle Loss Privilege Program* gives you a host of options for different loss events that can occur:

1. Negative Equity Privilege

When your vehicle is a total write-off and your balance on your vehicle loan is more than what your vehicle is worth, Negative Equity Privilege can step in to help. By providing an in-store loyalty discount†† for the difference between your insurer settlement amount and the remaining loan balance, this program can help you replace your Volkswagen.

2a. Total Loss Event Privilege

Sometimes, you do have to completely let go. Your insurer would call this a total loss of your vehicle (from such things as collision, fire or theft). In such a scenario, your insurer will quite often only pay the fair market value of your vehicle. With Total Loss Event Privilege, you’re eligible for a fixed in-store loyalty discount†† towards a replacement vehicle which helps offset some of the added cost of getting that new set of wheels.

2b. Partial Loss Event Privilege

In case your last fender-bender resulted in a damage record on your vehicle’s history report, a damage declaration could reduce the resale value of your vehicle. That’s why having a Partial Loss Event Privilege can be so beneficial. When it’s time to purchase or lease a new vehicle, it provides an in-store loyalty discount †† to help you make up for the loss in resale value.

3. Theft Event Privilege

With Theft Event Privilege, in the event your vehicle is stolen and not recovered, you are eligible for a fixed in-store loyalty discount †† towards a replacement vehicle.


  • Payable in affordable monthly installments
  • 60-day money back guarantee
