Maybe you’ve doubted that such a thing could be.
But here’s the truth of the matter:

There is a good amount of reasoning behind it – it’s not an arbitrary trend (because nothing in insurance is arbitrary.) And note that we say often. It’s not a rule that’s true for everyone everywhere. We’ll explain why car insurance for women might cost less than car insurance for men, and we’ll explain how you can get lower car insurance rates regardless of your gender.
