Hastings Direct — Car, Van, Bike & Home Insurance

Women's car insurance

Men and women are different in their driving habits, and the data proves it, which is why many car insurance providers previously offered special policies designed specifically for women.

Recently, new legislation by the European Court of Justice dictates gender can no longer be used as a factor when setting individual insurance prices, including car insurance, a move that's sparked concern from female drivers as the price of cover could be on the rise as a result.

At Hastings Direct, we believe drivers should be rewarded for good driving, male or female, which is why we've designed our SmartMiles telematics insurance policy.

With telematics, you can monitor your driving habits behind the wheel with access to a personalised dashboard and we'll discount your renewal costs if you're a safe driver. It's a great alternative to traditional women's car insurance policies, designed to reward safe drivers by offering savings that really add up overtime. We'll provide tips to help you improve your Driver Rating and stay safe on the road.

If a telematics car insurance policy isn't for you, our standard and premier car insurance policies offer Defaqto 5 Star rated cover at a great price — get an online quote today and see how much you could save.

Women drivers: Tips for staying safe on the road

Think ahead:

  • Pack a 'just in case' kit. Aside from a charged mobile phone - with your breakdown number stored - make sure to have at least a torch and blanket with you in the case of a breakdown.
  • Stay in touch. If possible, let someone know where you are driving to, which route you will take, and how long it will take to get there. If there are any delays, stop off somewhere safe and well lit to ring or send an update.

Next, think about the safety of your car:

  • Reduce the risk of a breakdown. Always check your tyre pressure and washer fluid before a long journey. Having regular MOTs and servicing can also ensure that your brakes and safety equipment are working properly.
  • Stay cautious. If you require assistance, ring your breakdown provider instead of accepting help from a stranger. If you break down on the motorway, attempt to use the SOS phones instead as these can pinpoint your exact location.

Getting an online quote from Hastings Direct couldn't be easier. You can tailor your policy to suit the level of car insurance cover you require, and the whole process should take just a few minutes. So, see how much you could save get a car insurance quote online now.
