Confused. com Welcomes Women on Wheels to Insurance Panel

Confused. com Welcomes Women on Wheels to Insurance Panel

Confused. com offers extended choice of insurers for female drivers.

Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) April 18, 2009

Confused. com, the UK's leading price comparison site, has announced the addition of Women on Wheels to its extensive panel of car insurance (http://www. confused. com/) providers.

Statistically, women make fewer claims than men, and therefore are rewarded with cheaper premiums for car insurance. Women on Wheels combines these discounts with cover that automatically includes a free replacement car (on comprehensive) and free legal cover. They also include a free European driving extension for up to 90 days.

Female drivers who purchase motor insurance from Women on Wheels through Confused. com will also get the additional benefit of a free Keycare policy worth £11.99. This will cover the cost of locksmith charges, replacing keys and locks and even reprogramming the immobiliser on vehicles, if the customers' set of keys is lost.

Commercial director at Confused. com, Peter Ablett, comments:
"Over a million women have visited Confused. com to compare car insurance (http://www. confused. com/) already this year - an increase of nearly a third on last year - so we are delighted to welcome Women on Wheels to our insurance panel. We are committed to finding our customers the best motor insurance policy for their circumstances at the right price.

"By adding another female-only insurer to our already extensive panel, we can offer our female customers both choice and competitive prices. A typical customer using Confused. com can save £206* on their car insurance policy."
