As some of you may be aware, a change in EU law which came into effect on December 1st means that insurance companies are now no longer permitted to discriminate based on gender when offering premiums. The traditional discounts offered to females will no longer apply, and it's expected that they will see a rise of around 35%. Males were also due to see a decrease of around 10%. I have personally got a new quote for car insurance and found that it was 3% higher than a quote I got on November 30th! Has anyone else checked their renewal costs?
