Diamond is targeted at women – but men can be customers, too. It offers cover from third party to comprehensive. Here’s what you need to know.
As an insurer that targets women, Diamond is worth a look if you’re female, and also if you’re not. Insurers aren’t allowed by law to calculate premiums based on gender, but Diamond says data show that women have fewer expensive accidents than men which is why it targets them. If it has to make fewer big payouts than its rivals, it ought to follow that its costs – and its premiums – should be lower, too. Diamond says, however, that this doesn’t translate into generally lower premiums.
Some might find it a bit of a cliché that it emphasises its handbag and child seat cover (which are included under a comprehensive policy), rather than just personal possessions cover. But if you get a cheap quote and want those extras included, perhaps you’re willing to overlook that!
