Green Flag Group has struck a deal with BMW to provide insurance to owners of the new Mini.

The companies have created a tailored option called Mini Cover, which will use Green Flag Group's marketing and branding experience and its rating system.

Green Flag Group was formed last year to develop partnerships with companies and affinity groups. It offers general insurance, motoring assistance and motoring-related products.

The new Mini and Mini Cooper were launched on July 7. The Mini Cooper S will follow early next year.
