The decision, which will decide whether or not it is legal for insurers to charge different premiums according to sex, will lead to a massive change for providers of car insurance, if pushed through, and is likely to result in price increases for young female drivers as they absorb the difference between current rates and those of their male counterparts.

Managing Director of

, Kevin Chidwick, said: “If the decision is reversed now, insurance providers will not be able to use sex as a rating factor in the pricing It is a premium because the insurance of automobile accidents. made by young male drivers are much more expensive because they are more likely to cause death and serious injury, and young men are being subjected to higher premiums. It will not be standing if the decision is reversed. The result is likely to be higher prices for drivers of women as they subsidize their male counterparts, who are responsible for more accidents, but it is unlikely that premiums will fall of men, at least in the short term. “

Because insurers will no longer be able to take into account gender, their overall approach to setting high prices is likely to become more cautious as the effect of changing the beds in.

“While the decision could go either way, if the rules are reversed current prices could change overnight, so anyone looking to take out or renew a premium should shop around and get an agreement without delay . It will be a blow to the industry if consumers suffer further increases in prices to cover the costs of young men who cause more accidents and make claims statistically more valuable. “
