Oh dear, it must have got worse since I was in this place. Have the insurance companies done as they were told by the EU, and equalised the premiums between lads and girls? My two girls got there before this so were quite reasonably charged. Girls were seen as much lower risk. On the plus side, the no claims bonus soon builds up.
