Officially, insurers cannot give lower-priced quotations to women, than they give to men. However, there is no rule that says they cannot discriminate between different occupations. It often seems that the more female oriented a job is, the lower the insurance quote is! A young male motorist who is a nurse is likely to find much cheaper premiums than one who is a steelworker or a security guard. Also; insurers that specialise in providing insurance cover to female motorists have not been obliged to increase their premiums. They cannot discriminate in favour of the girls; however, how many men are going to buy their policies from the company with a name like 'Girls Drive Better', or one that offers free handbag cover?
