Great American Lease & Loan Insurance Services is a pan-European provider of specialist insurance solutions to the commercial equipment and vehicle finance industry.

We have more than 30 years of experience in developing bespoke asset protection, guaranteed asset protection (GAP) and Early Termination Insurance products to protect leasing companies and their customers in the UK and Europe, and with multi-territory programmes.

Superior Asset Protection

Great American Lease & Loan Insurance Services’ fully outsourced and white-labelled leased asset insurance programme and point-of-sale solutions help protect a lessor’s portfolio with A+ rated insurance, generate fee income for the lessor and deliver an added-value service to its customers.


We cover an extensive range of product types ranging from IT and office equipment such as photocopiers, laptops, printers, servers and telecoms, to closed-circuit television (CCTV) and security, materials handling, construction, medical, and new asset types from emerging technologies such as ground source heat pumps and electric bikes.

No excess policies, outstanding customer service and a unique claims handling process all deliver quality benefits to add value to a lessor’s product offering. Additionally, for leased technology equipment in the corporate and education sector, our insurance solution includes an online platform for ease of asset tracking and claims management.

Pan-European Expertise

Great American Lease & Loan Insurance Services currently operates in 19 countries in Europe. With head offices in Dublin, Ireland and Bristol in the UK, we are ideally placed to create bespoke insurance offerings in all the major European countries and to bring our experience and expertise to managing multi-territory solutions in the markets where you operate.

Our team of native language speakers will deliver excellent service to your customers in their own language through all stages of the insurance process.

Regulatory compliance

Offering insurance and operating in a regulated market can seem daunting to lessors, but our insurance solutions offer the reassurance of regulatory compliance.

Great American Lease & Loan Insurance Services’ in-house compliance teams review compliance requirements relevant to our insurance programmes in each jurisdiction where we operate, whether that’s in the UK, EU or across multiple territories in a pan-European programme in line with our passporting permissions.
