Is it fair to discriminate on age, gender or race in insurance pricing?MoneySaving Poll Results

In December the European Court of Justice 'gender equalisation' rule hits, meaning insurers can no longer charge men and women different prices (other things being equal). It'll mean hikes in car, life and medical insurance for women, and worse annuity rates for men.

Select all below which you think insurers SHOULD BE ALLOWED to factor into pricing?

6,971 people have selected 14,595 options (percentages are the number who voted for that topic of the total people who have voted, so won't add up to 100%).

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
