The Royal Bank of Scotland's Direct Line insurance division revolutionised the UK's motor insurance industry, and in the process proceeded from start-up in 1986 to become the largest motor insurer in less than ten years. This was achieved by introducing an operation which cut out the insurance broker traditionally employed, and the associated delay in providing quotations.

If the quotation is acceptable to the customer, the provision of a credit card number allows insurance cover to begin without further delay.
