Women are less likely to take out comprehensive car insurance when compared to men, according to a recent survey. The research was commissioned by The Post Office and found that just 44% of women had taken out comprehensive cover on their motor, which is significantly less than the 58% of men who did have comprehensive car insurance. The Post Office says it recommends comprehensive insurance for all motorists as it offers the widest range of protection including cover against theft, damage, and some policies even offer breakdown cover. Third party, fire and theft policies offer a lesser level of protection, although drivers are often tempted to opt for this policy as it is cheaper than comprehensive cover. The advice being given from The Post Office is to thoroughly read through a motor insurance agreement before signing on the dotted line so as to be clear about what exactly is covered as part of the policy. Separate research found that women are less likely to be involved in a head-on car collision compared to men, however they are more prone to accidents at slower speeds such as at traffic lights, car parks, and roundabout. Female motorists are the worst culprits when it comes to bumps and scraps to their vehicles, all the more reason to take out a comprehensive insurance policy perhaps?! High up on the average women’s list of priorities for their motor insurance policy, is cover to protect against the theft or loss of car keys.
