A European Union (EU) ruling due to come in to force on the 21st of December 2012 dictates that insurance companies can no longer discriminate based on gender, which could mean more expensive premiums for thousands of female motorhomers in the UK.
However Caravan Guard customers won’t be affected by the ruling, as Director Sally Wilby explains,
“Caravan Guard already have an insurance pricing structure in place which rates female and male motorhomers exactly the same, meaning the new law will not affect any of Caravan Guard’s customers. One of the great things about motorhoming is that it can be enjoyed by anybody; families, couples, and single people of either gender. With this in mind we are pleased to be in a position to offer the same price to men and women when taking out an insurance policy with Caravan Guard.”
If you are insured elsewhere then it may be a good idea to call your insurance provider and check if there will be an insurance premium increase due to the new ruling.
