With the EU gender ruling coming into force very soon, insurance comparison site Tiger.co.uk has published a guide to the EU Gender Ruling
what it means for UK motorists.
If you are a young female motorist with motor insurance due for renewal in the near future you may well have heard about the EU gender ruling.
The EU’s Gender Directive is coming into effect from December 21st
this year and means that insurance companies will no longer be able to take gender into the equation when calculating premiums for motor insurance. The likely result will be that female drivers will no longer continue to benefit from much lower insurance rates than their male counterparts as they have done in the past.
There has been much speculation over what the EU Gender Directive will mean for drivers and in particular the impact it will have on the price of insurance policies. Car insurance comparison
site Tiger.co.uk has produced a guide to the directive that aims to address some of the questions drivers may have and provide some guidance on what is to be expected.
Andrew Goulborn, Commercial Director for Tiger.co.uk commented: “There is no doubt that insurance companies are having to re-evaluate their pricing as a result of the European Court of Justice ruling, but it is still not yet clear exactly what the impact will be. Many consumers, especially women, are concerned about the affect it will have on the price of their insurance and we thought it would be good to publish a simple guide sharing the knowledge we have on the subject. This is part of our continued commitment to offer our shoppers more than just the ability to easily compare car insurance
quotes. As ever, we would always recommend that all drivers compare insurance prices at renewal using an independent site like Tiger.co.uk to access quotes from over 90 motor insurance brands including 6 of the increasingly popular telematics or black box insurance brands.”
