The Association of Travel Insurance Intermediaries (ATII) began in 1989 when a group of intermediaries met quarterly to informally discuss the market trends and share information relating to their industry. Just four years later the ATII was registered as a limited company and was subscribed by the 8 founding members. It was set to operate as a non-profit organisation and now has over 30 members.
Formally the ATII members meet 4 to 5 times a year and has a similar number of Executive Committee meetings. Various ad-hoc committees sit and report about issues such as Insurance Premium Tax (IPT), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulation and other important industry matters. They hold an annual meeting of Travel Insurance specialists and providers where most of the travel industry has representation.
The ATII is involved with the annual Travel Insurance Conference held in London where industry partners, insurers and the ATII members get together to discuss topical issues and share their opinions with the other sectors in the industry.
As the ATII is non-profit making, they are actively involved in supporting charities and makes donations to them throughout the year.
Travel Insurance Intermediaries who join ATII have the benefit of being kept up to date with the legal matters concerning the industry and the ATII acts as the voice of its members in discussion with government bodies such as the Financial Conduct Authority, the Association of British Insurers and associations such as ABTA.
