Go though you insurance company. 

Or ring them to cancel, the price will probably halve.

You need to ring them and say you have found a cheaper quote elsewhere. I have to go through this rigmarole every year as the premium doubles with each renewal letter. I only have basic roadside recovery with them and pay £45.

I rarely deal with the same insurance company two years running , two years ago I went with the AA and got roadside assistance for £15 then when it came up for renewal it shot up to about four times the original cost , so as the R A C was a cheaper quote I went with them and again an introductory offer for roadside assistance , now oddly enough I have just got this years quote from the R A C and it was about £20 cheaper than last year with the roadside assistance included .

I have tried all manner and have gone back to RAC 
I like to know what I’m getting and with one of the big 2 I can virtually guarantee that they will have a go at a repair. 
Both have got me back on the road in the past but in fairness some of the cheaper ones have also. 
 

I have also had some shockers where they have come out and just put it on a low loader usually the service is provided by a local third party. 
 

if you are happy with what you have then that’s all that really matters. 
 

on a side note I have seen a few green flag trucks but not half as many as the big 2. 
do they use exclusively their own patrols or that if local garages as well

Do yourself a favour and ring Start Rescue, been let down by RAC (7 hour wait despite being a priority medical case) and the AA (could not fund a fault with my wife's car and left her to her own devices whilst she was 8 months pregnant, I looked at the car the next day and the distributer cap was cracked), Start Rescue, on the other hand, have been amazing, after I broke down once they rang 3 times in the half hour to check I was OK and keep me updated on the recovery truck, all for a fraction of the cost of the big 3.

Passed driving test in 1966 and driven constantly since. 
Never been a member of any road rescue organisation. 
Never been stuck at the roadside.  
Had nothing but Land Rovers since 1976.

Bound to break down tomorrow now I’ve posted that!
