With Valentine's Day coming up, date insurance might be helpful in the event of a disasterous date. Confused.com is offering a trial version of date insurance to help women recover money spent on dates gone wrong. Confused.com found out that single women have to pay up to £400 more for car insurance than married women. That combined with the survey results indicating that 76% of dates don't work out sparked Confused.com's interest in offering the program.
When asked why dates went wrong, 27% of respondents said they didn't "'fancy'" their date, 9% said they found dates boring and 22% said there was no chemistry. To trial the new date insurance, Confused.com is requesting that site visitors submit their bad date experiences. Some have reported trips to a sewage station, a trip to a coffin factory, and a prison visit to meet the parents.
