Cardiff-based Diamond Insurance launched in June 1997 offering car, bike, home and travel insurance. Their specialty is offering low-cost car insurance specifically for women, who they consider safer drivers to men. With a reputation for driving slower and more carefully, women supposedly pose less risk to insurers and therefore should have a lower insurance premium to reflect this.
Despite offering car insurance for women on the Internet since 2000 at low prices, the EU insurance gender ruling passed a law in December 2012 that insurance companies cannot provide different rates due to gender.

Call Wiser is a leading independent broker for car, bike and van insurance in the UK. So instead of applying for insurance with just one company, you can get deals from a number of insurers in one place. As well as offering policies for women, we can also provide cover for men, learner drivers, teenagers and the elderly.
We can provide market-beating quotes for mummy drivers, specialist insurance for young drivers, classic car insurance for the father’s old classic and multi car cover for the entire family. We are able to use more than one insurer and policy on the same account – so there is only one renewal date, less admin and you can save money on insurance for the entire family.
All new policies will include bonus add-ons, not available with Diamond car insurance. We are pleased to offer free breakdown cover for every vehicle and free legal expenses cover in case you have to pay legal fees for a claim that wasn’t your fault. We also provide free handbag, wallet, mobile phone and gadget cover too as a standard for all policies.

If you believe that women are better drivers and would like to prove that you are a safe driver for insurance purposes, there are options available. Drivers can take the Pass Plus Scheme which is an additional driving course that lasts 6 hours and is approved by insurers to reduce premiums by 30-40%.
Another popular option is to add a telematics box to your car’s dashboard. Using technology, it is able to monitor your driving activity including speeding, braking and turning. The information is transmitted to your insurer in real-time and if your policymaker can see that your have been driver slower, safer or doing less mileage, they will provide you with a discount on your premium.
