Women's insurance premiums set to rocket

Tom Webster

Young female drivers' insurance premiums are set to rise dramatically if the European Court of Justice outlaws gender discrimination at a hearing next month.

The final decision is expected on 1 March, and could see the gap closed between the prices male and female drivers pay for their insurance. The 17-22 age bracket is set to suffer the most, with prices for female drivers currently over £1,000 less than their male equivalents.
