    Price

    According to Finder's 2024 car insurance awards research, NAB's premiums were 24% cheaper than average. However, young drivers benefited the most. Drivers in their 20s and 30s saw premiums much cheaper than average for their age, while older drivers probably wouldn't struggle to find more affordable policies elsewhere.

    Keep in mind, the best car insurance for you may be based on more than price.
