Average prices by gender
Both men and women have seen annual and quarterly rises, paying £901 and £781 respectively.
Men and women have seen their prices go up sharply this quarter by 9% (£77) and 7% (£53) respectively. Even though the rules prohibit insurers from assessing 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. As a result, there is now a £120 difference between the sexes. 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.
