Why female car insurance is differentMon, 18/05/2009
Shopping around to find the most suitable car insurance quote is one way to get the best result, but do not forget to consider policies specific for women.
Many insurance companies offer female cover, because it is thought by some that girls are safer drivers and therefore less of a road risk.
Some motor insurance for women also has breakdown cover built in, to prevent lone females being stuck and in potential danger if their vehicle fails.
Other quirks and extras offered by some companies include handbag protection in case of theft, or a donation to a women's charity.
However, as well as tailored car insurance, there are other ways to make sure you get value for money when it comes to cover.
All personal details are taken into account when premiums are calculated, so any no-claims bonuses should help knock the price down, as could a smaller engine size, the age of the driver, keeping the vehicle in a safe place over night and the area the motorist lives in.
