New to Australia, 1st for Women car insurance, rewards female drivers with discount car insurance rates. The company believes that women drivers have less costly claims than men, and it can therefore pass on the benefits in the form of lower car insurance premiums.
Managing Director Mike Weston explained the decision to start the brand was logical. "It's a simple case of looking at the statistics."
"Car insurance claims lodged by females generally cost less than those made by men. For example, paying out a claim for a shopping centre bingle is often less than the cost of a high speed accident.
"This isn't to say women don't have more serious car accidents, they just don't as often as men" Mr Weston said.
At 1st for Women, drivers are not charged a higher premium to cover the cost of more expensive claims.
"We pass the savings onto our customers", Mr Weston said.
