Until late in 2012 it was common for women who provided exactly the same details as men to receive cheaper car insurance quotes. There were many different reasons for this the main one being that according to statistics women tended to be much more careful drivers than men, this resulted in women having fewer accidents, therefore car insurance companies had to pay out much less in claims which in turn allowed them to offer cheaper car insurance premiums.
However, on the 21st December 2012 the European Court of Justice gender ruling came into force which prohibited car insurance companies from offering favorable policies to either men or women based on gender.
In order for women to find a suitable car insurance policy it may be a good idea for women to use a comparison website to obtain numerous quotes from a variety of different companies as this will allow them to compare a range of features and benefits offered by each provider.
