The International Association for Student Insurance Services, (IASIS) was formed under the name of International Student Insurance Services (ISIS) Association over 60 years ago, in 1951 with the purpose of providing the best specialist insurance and assistance services and products for youth and student travellers.

More recently, IASIS has adapted to changing market and regulatory conditions in the travel and insurance markets by establishing long-term partnerships with a suite of respected insurance and assistance providers. These partnerships provide the Association with the geographical capacity and state-of-the-art technological platforms required to serve the contemporary needs of young travellers and travel providers.
