Real Insurance , Australia’s insurance company backed by Hollard, has released findings from annual motor claims revealing which gender are more likely to have accidents.
Real Insurance CEO Roger Grobler said, “Unfortunately our statistics do indicate a gender bias. Female drivers, on average, are 15 per cent more likely to have a car accident claim than male drivers and in regional Australia, women drivers are 65 per cent more likely to incur a claim compared to men. It appears from the claim statistics that men tend to be better drivers in the age group 25-65 after which women prove to be marginally better drivers.
However, in case of drivers younger than 25, Real Insurance data suggests that men and women drivers are on an equal footing when it comes to accident claims.”
