Alliance Internationale de Tourisme is an international federation of motoring organisations created to "represent the interests of national automobile associations and touring clubs". It was founded at the Casino Bourgeois in Luxembourg City on 4 August 1898 as the Ligue Internationale des Associations Touristes (LIAT) but changed its name to the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT) on 30 May 1919.[1]

Membership of the Alliance is limited to organisations active in the field of tourism, mobility, motoring and/or open air activities, and not open to individuals. According to the AIT website, the organisation claims 140 members in 101 countries.[2]
