Average prices by gender
Men still pay more for their car insurance than women, despite five-year EU gender directive anniversary.
Men are paying £114 more than women for their car insurance. Even though the rules prohibit insurers to assess a driver’s risk on their gender, the data shows men still have poorer claims experience than women, based on the value of claims, and this is reflected in the price of their premiums. This is linked to the fact that men tend to drive more expensive cars with larger engines than women and, on average, they have more convictions.
