UK Car Insurance Premiums Fall by 6%, But Not for Women
One of the latest reports found out that car insurance premiums have fallen 6.2% since last June. This month, prices have fallen by another 0.6% and yet women are not seeing the sharp price falls that men do.
Indeed, in June car insurance premiums have fallen by 2.3% compared to May, whereas women only saw a 1.2% decline.
In the opinion of car insurance experts, the EU ruling which is to come into force in December 2012 is already hitting women drivers. Let us remind that the EU Gender Directive bans the use of gender as an insurance rating factor when calculating premiums.
Commenting on the latest figures, Andrew Goulborn, of Tiger - UK-based car insurance website, said: "Generally we’ve seen pretty flat car insurance policy pricing over the last 12 months. In fact, prices have dropped slightly versus their June 2011 peak. Monthly inflation is hitting women motorists – especially young women motorists – harder than males."
