    The sneaky thing about this of course is that insurance companies will still charge more for drivers who drive more miles, or who accelerate/ brake more sharply. If those drivers mainly happen to male, then it's not discrimination because it's based on how they drive and a woman driving the same way would be charged the same. But I imagine that young male drivers will still, on average, end up paying more...

    This was all mooted about the industry 10 years ago. Never happened then, really doubt it ever will.

    Genral Accident before it became part of CGU now Aviva done a similar thing years back where you paid for the miles you done taken from the cars MOT. It never worked.

    Insurance comanies have it cushty the way things are at the moment.

    Well £27,000 looks like discrimination to me
