THE INTRODUCTION OF new EC guidelines on gender discrimination this December could see a major hike in insurance premiums for women drivers.
The AA told TheJournal.ie that the new directives are “unfair and harsh”. Traditionally, young men have paid more for their premiums than women of the same age because statistics show that young male drivers “are the highest risk”, said the AA.
The new guidelines however, rule that premiums can no longer be decided on the basis of whether it’s a man or woman behind the wheel.
What do you think? Should car insurance cost the same for men as for women?
