Who is Green Flag?
Green Flag is a UK based roadside assistance and recovery service. They were formed in 1971 and currently, are part of the Direct Line Group. When formed, they were designed as an alternative to their closest competitors AA and RAC. They used a network of local garages to provide a recovery and repairs service. Their head offices are based in Leeds and Glasgow within the Direct Line Group.
Over time, Green Flag has been accredited with multiple Your Money awards, receiving the Best Breakdown Cover award 7 years in a row from 2004 – 2010 as well as 2013 and 2014. They’ve received multiple other awards in recent times including “Roadside Assistance Company Of the Year”. You can contact them by calling 0871 244 9740.
What services do they offer?
Green Flag offers a number of different services for its customer base. Their offerings include the following:
- Breakdown Cover
- European Breakdown Cover
- Business Breakdown Cover
- Route Planner
Their route planner allows you to select your intended start point and end destination. It will then provide you with the best routes available for you, taking away the stress of long journeys. They have a full range of breakdown covers, this includes both rescue and recovery. Their offer comes as either personal cover (whatever car your travelling in) or vehicle cover (dependent on how many cars you wish to cover).
European Breakdown cover ensures you receive the roadside assistance you need when abroad in European countries. This can be cover based on your amount of trips, so doesn’t need to be a monthly figure paid – it can just be a one-off payment for each trip you intend on taking and the number of days you’re away for. There’s also an annual multi-day cover that gives you 90 days worth of cover across a year for multiple trips.
Business Breakdown Cover helps business ensure all their company vehicles are covered. You can add anything from 1 vehicle to 20+ vehicles to your cover. Vehicles in Europe and the UK can both be added under the same coverage and are charged per vehicle.
