A European Court of Justice ruling made it illegal to use gender as a factor in determining insurance premiums. Read more about car insurance in our guides
Traditionally, women's car insurance tended to be cheaper than men's, based on the fact that women are statistically less likely to make a claim and that, when they do claim, the pay-outs are less expensive.
But car insurance premiums for women have undergone a massive change following a European Court of Justice directive that made it illegal to use gender as a factor in determining insurance premiums.
Despite the ECJ ruling, you will still see female-friendly brands on the car insurance market as companies target their advertising at women in the hope of gaining more lower-risk drivers on their books.
"There's a good chance that your current insurer will have fundamentally changed the way they calculate their premiums since the gender directive," said motor insurance expert Scott Kelly.
"So you certainly shouldn't just roll-over your car insurance policy at renewal and accept the price quoted."
