“shocking even at the low price!”

Written on: 23/05/2015 by yjyjy (1 review written)

charges after I paid! Cant believe they sent me some guy who I had to get a friend to speak to him on how to fix my car!!! seems a bit useless considering its ment to rival the bigger boys, clearly just a cheap setup interested in recovering money from you rather than recovering the car! that means the 2 times I have called them this year I have had zero percent success fix rate! shocking, my family told me not to jump over to greenflag but I thought id give it a go with the price and all… Read Full Review

“Excellent service - again”

Written on: 29/04/2015

I have been with Green Flag for a number of years and they have always been terrific. Recently, I have needed to rely on their rescue and recovery service twice in a couple of weeks - different cars and different breakdown problems in different parts of the country. On both occasions Green Flag were with me well within the stated 1 hour attendance time and recovered me to our home address quickly and efficiently. On the second occasion the chap even helped me unload my belongings into my home… Read Full Review

“Caravan Shunt.”

Written on: 29/03/2015

Whilst on site, sitting in our caravan, we were shunted approx 45 degrees into our awning by a runaway car & caravan. Not knowing how much damage there was to the nosewheel, steadies etc, we called Green Flag. They were pleasant & helpful & said whenever we were ready to go, to let them know. We had a lorry to take our caravan to a destination chosen by us within a couple of hours. All in all it was efficient & painless, which is just what you want when these things happen. Well done, Green… Read Full Review

I just really want to thank the lovely gentleman that came and saved me today. I coudln't of asked for someone to go more above and beyond their job role. okay he couldn't fix the problem with my car, but its had issues since i've had it and he did his very best and towed me home and mentioned that i could then be towed to a garage tomorrow as it is a sunday today. He kept me calm and laughing and we had an amazing chat. They weren't as prompt as i had hoped however there was a very good reason… Read Full Review

“Suspect morals”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by cvue (1 review written)

I strongly advise not to allow this company to charge by Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) on a credit card. They regard it as a lifetime commitment and extracting from the commitment which is on a one year contract is difficult to put it mildly. They ignore correspondence and even the correspondence address is in minute letters at the bottom. In their terms and conditions they allow themselves 2 weeks notice to cancel but no mention at all of the poorer customer. The CC companies themselves… Read Full Review

“" No Claims discount" PAY MORE!!!”

Written on: 23/02/2015 by Strider1947 (3 reviews written)

Received my Green Flag renewal today, and the price including 1 years no claims is a 15% rise, 15% RISE!! As I paid monthly by direct debit the renewal read "YOU DON'T NEED TO DO ANYTHING.WE'LL RENEW YOUR POLICY AUTOMATICALLY" in the hope that you trust they are honest and have given you a discount. If you're caught trying to "rip off" an insurance company it's a crime, when you complain about an insurance (Green Flag) trying to rip YOU off nothing is done. ALWAYS,ALWAYS CLAIM OF THE INSURANCE… Read Full Review

We've used the service twice in about 6mnths & each time the centre has been quick & efficient, they've sent a man really quickly & in the time stated, the men have been super nice & efficient & I couldn't rate them more highly & no my husband doesn't work for the Company… Read Full Review

You don't understand why other reviews are bad because you didn't have their awful experiences obviously!!!! Pretty logical really.

My sympathies. I know if you have a bad experience then it's truly awful but I can only comment on my own experience. I guess as with anything there is good & bad. Wishing you better experiences in the future :)

“Absolutely horrendous service ”

Written on: 22/02/2015 by 158Malloy (1 review written)

I'm a nanny and I went to pick up the children I was looking after from their nursery. I picked them up and went to leave and my car wouldn't start. I rang Green Flag and they said I was a priority as I had children in the car so they said they would be with me within the hour. They took two and a half hours to arrive. Once they arrived they tried to put my car onto the tow truck. I say tried as my car has an electric handbreak and they didn't put it in manual. The car rolled off the back of… Read Full Review

I'd like to know if Green Flag took responsibility for liability for the accident damage to the window and wall or did you incur costs from that on your car insurance?

“Appalling episode with Green Flag.”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by doylepa (1 review written)

If you are considering Green Flag in an effort to save a couple of quid please, please, please think again and don’t do it. The first time I ever had to ring Green Flag for assistance and told the girl about my suspected blown head gasket, and that I would need a tow back to my home. She was not the least bit interested in my predicament, only whether I was driving the vehicle registered with them and for some strange reason the colour of it. She told me it would be a 45 minutes wait. 2… Read Full Review

Are you cancelling? If so, who will you go with instead? I have just spent all evening reading equally **** reviews about EVERY car breakdown company and I am at a loss of who to change to. RAC let me down on Friday with THREE HOUR wait while Disabled and in unsafe situation and eventually I had to seek help in the road myself while distraught. I cannot find a reliable breakdown company anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was going to change to green flag until I read THIS review and other bad ones!!!!!

“waste of money”

Written on: 10/02/2015 by Claire112 (1 review written)

Required their assistance twice and both times a complete let down. Utterly disgusted by misinformation. Missed very important meeting regarding my child who has a disability after being twice assured loan car will be delivered on time. It wasn't , in fact it wasn't even delivered at all, someone turned up at door to take me to collect car . Knowing I was already extremely stressed by this and feeling let down , they didn't even call me back. I belong to a car club with several thousand… Read Full Review

“Over 3 hours, kept telling us 20 mins”

Written on: 08/02/2015 by DarienNichols (1 review written)

We had a flat tyre that we couldn't fix ourselves due to a missing lock nut tool (otherwise we would have). Originally told it would take 45 mins to an hour- after 3 hours and US making constant calls for an update, still no sign. They kept telling us 20 minutes, then 40 and we were only in Guildford- hardly out in the sticks. Very disappointing- will be changing our service… Read Full Review
