The survey took into account over 6 million insurance quotes and found that women are responsible for fewer motoring accidents when compared to men. The results also highlighted the huge difference in motor insurance rates between male and female motorists. However the disparity is seen most acutely in the insurance prices for younger drivers with an 18-year-old male driver paying on average, £1,081 more than a female driver of the same age for motoring cover. The study was conducted by insurance price comparison site moneysupermarket.com which also found that the average price male drivers pay for motoring insurance stands at £868 whereas the cost for women is considerably less at £517. An expert on car insurance from the price comparison website added that not only do women benefit from lower premiums on their cover, these premiums also decrease at a much faster rate than those of men. The good news doesn’t stop there for female drivers. It was also revealed that women’s car insurance lowers considerably as they get older with women in their 20’s paying an average of £598 a year on motoring cover, and a woman in her 40’s paying £260 per annum.
