EU Gender Law change
Beware - your car insurance premium could go up!
On 21st December 2012, a change to the Insurance & Pensions Directive was implemented. This means that insurance companies can no longer calculate insurance premiums based on gender. This change is likely to have an impact on how much young females pay.
Young women are better drivers than young men
Our extensive research shows that women have a different driving pattern to men. In motor insurance terms, women, and particularly young women, are better drivers than men because they have fewer expensive accidents. This was previously reflected in how much a female’s car insurance premium was compared with their male counterparts.
Who does the change affect?
New customers joining Diamond after the 21st December may see some increase to car insurance prices. However, customers who would have purchased a policy before the 21st December with Diamond won't experience this change until their renewal. Even though the change to the law will have an effect on women's car insurance prices, this will not affect our commitment to providing a product that's shaped for girls!
