JMD Ross’s ATEC inbound tour operator liability insurance

Australia’s dramatic growth in tourism has created a need for ATEC members to keep abreast of the risks and potential legal liability involved in operating in the industry.

Many inbound tour operators (ITOs) put their businesses at risk because they don’t understand their legal responsibilities.

ATEC and JMD Ross Insurance Brokers have developed the solution – a combined occupational liability insurance policy for ATEC members.

The policy covers public and products liability and professional negligence. It is designed to provide protection that’s not always available in operators’ existing insurance programs.
