During 1989, a group of insurance intermediaries met quarterly on an informal basis to discuss market trends and to exchange and share information about the industry. Some four years later, the ATII was registered as a Limited Company, set up to operate as a non-profit organisation and was subscribed by eight founder members. With over 30 member companies and still growing, members of the Association are now involved in the majority of travel insurance turnover in the UK.
The ATII membership meets formally 4 to 5 times a year with a similar number of Executive Committee meetings. It organises an annual meeting of Travel Insurance specialists and providers (Insurers, Assistance Companies, Loss Adjusters etc) at which most of the Travel Industry is represented. Various ad hoc committees sit and report from time to time on such issues as Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), FCA regulation and other industry matters as and when required.
The ATII is also involved in the annual Travel Insurance Conference held at the RAC Club in in London, where industry partners, insurers and our members come together to discuss topical issues and share their opinions with other sectors of the industry.
As a non profit organisation, the ATII supports various charities and makes donations to them throughout the year. Included amongst these charities are the Family Holiday Association, Sportability and a number of Hospices.
