Average prices by gender
Both men and women have seen annual rises, paying £890 and £774 respectively.
Men and women have seen their prices go up sharply this year by 14% (£109) and 13% (£91) respectively. 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.
