Finding the right car insurance policy is no different for women than it is for men. Both are looking for competitive prices and need to choose between levels of protection, insurance excesses and added policy extras. However there are certain providers who may be able to offer added value that is specifically designed for female drivers, such as handbag insurance or female-friendly recommended repair services.
Up until December 2012, this was likely to be the case, with the average woman's premium cheaper than that of their male counterparts. This was because statistically women made up a smaller percentage of claims and were seen as less of a risk than male drivers.
December 2012 saw the introduction of the EU Gender Directive which made it illegal to use gender as a factor in working out car insurance premiums - unfortunately for many women, this saw a rise in the price that they were paying for car insurance.
This doesn't mean that women are now paying over the odds for their car insurance.
