From the 21st of December, insurance companies will not be allowed to charge different motor insurance rates to men and women. Women pay less for insurance than males as statistics show them to have less risk on the roads.
Young women could expect an increase of 11% on their premiums whilst young males would see a modest reduction in the rates they pay for motor insurance. This is because of the substantial gap between male and female premiums with young men paying up to double for insurance.
