Supplementary notes
The source adds the following information: "The NimbleFins team gathered quotes from a selection of major insurers in the UK to see how driver age impacts the cost of comprehensive car insurance. The following rates assume 5 years' of driving experience and a 5-year No Claims Discount (NCD) for consistency. (A NCD can save a consumer up to around 50% on their car insurance premiums.)"
