Report reveals Older Female Drivers More of a Risk Than Men
Published: 04/03/10

It has always been great to be a woman when it comes to female driver insurance but lately as women approach their 50 year mark they will notice that their car insurance premiums start rising and this may well continue well into their retirement years.

In a report that was released towards the end of January this year, insurance figures revealed a very interesting trend when it comes to women’s driving - It seems the older women get, the more dangerous they are considered behind the wheel!

Women have a definite insurance advantage over their male counterparts when they start driving in their teens as they tend to pay only half the premium that men pay. The reason for this is that women have always been seen as better drivers making as they make less claims well into their 40’s thus making them less of a liability in the insurance industry.

However, according to the latest report from the insurance industry, it seems that there is a reverse trend in terms of which sex becomes more of a liability as it seems women start making more claims than men when they start approaching the 50 year mark.

According to AA insurance, the point at which women start paying more than men has dropped to less than 50 now and this has led to some insurers charging women over the age of 75 up to 50% more than their male counterparts. It is not to say that men’s driving gets better as they grow older but it seems that women’s driving decreases at a faster rate and there is really no clear explanation for this. After all look at women such as Murile Gladwin. She hung up her gloves when she was 94 after 82 flawless years on the roads!

Here at Flint Insurance our Queen Bee insurance policy has been specifically tailored for the lady driver to provide complete cover and assurance. Find a cheap lady driver insurance quote today or call 0800 021 4513 for more information.
