Originally started back in 1971 as a network of garages (was called National Breakdown Recovery Club) and has now developed into the recognised brand of Green Flag. Now owned and run by the insurance provider "Direct Line", part of the RBS group. With over 4 million users, sometimes call out times can be quicker, if near a local garage.
Breakdown Services: What Green Flag Offer
The main Green Flag services offered are based on 2 options. Either a any driver policy, so it does not matter who is driving, or a any vehicle policy, where the driver is covered, no matter what vehicle they are driving. Cars need to be under 16 years old and privately registered.
