The Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT), established in 1898, is the oldest non-profit, non-governmental organisation in the world to represent the interests of national automobile associations and touring clubs.
With over a century of experience servicing member associations, the AIT has grown to include many different areas of activity relating to travel and mobility.
Although the AIT does not deal directly with the public, its services are far-reaching and include mutual assistance agreements between its member associations for the benefit of these associations' individual members. Membership of the AIT carries a number of advantages, though specific membership criteria have to be met in order to join the Alliance. In 2002 the AIT consisted of 140 member associations in 101 countries
