Thats a crazy price. More details needed really, whats your ages, area and have you had any convictions.

I just renewed our insurance and my wives is £190 for a Nissan Micra and mine was £220. We are both fully comp on each others and the excess is set to £250.

I went with Aviva in the end and normally spend half a day shopping around. Always call up on the phone then do it online and dont forget to use cash back websites, i got £80 back.

Thought Male and Female quotes were now very similar and gender shouldn't come into consideration.

the male and female situation hasnt cam in to play yet. at the moment it is still cheaper to insure a female than male. i work in insurance and you will be amazed how many people do a quote online and "ACCIDENTIALLY" put them selves down as female and they are a male!! haha. increases the insurance by £100 at least.

Ridiculous that they think females are safer, my sister has hit every car she's owned (around 5). She is a terrible driver but still pays a lot less insurance than me!!!! My other sister just passed her test and can insure a mini convertible for less than I can with 2 ncb and 3 years driving experience... Work that out lol

Ridiculous that they think females are safer,


Statistically, females have less expensive accidents than males. It's a fact.

It's all down to the cost of the claim, woman could have 1000's more bumps, but they wont add up to the 100's of write off men produce.

Exactly, women tend to just prang cars, men crash at 100mph into 20 other cars a house and cause similar damage to a javelin missile.
