Auto Club Exchange was incorporated on October 4th, 1912, to provide insurance to the members of the Auto Club of Southern California (ACSC). The ACSC, founded in 1900 in Los Angeles, was one of the first motor clubs dedicated to improving roads, the proposal of traffic laws, and improving overall driving conditions. It is currently the single most prominent member of the American Automobile Association (AAA), with AAA Texas as its subsidiary.
Over the years, Auto Club Exchange grew to provide services to members of Auto Club of Southern California and its affiliates and subsidiaries like AAA Texas and other members of other non-affiliated AAA clubs.
Better provision of services over the years has necessitated administrative and affiliate agreements with other insurance providers. The most notable ones include the following:
Administration Service Agreement
In 2000, the Auto Club Exchange entered into separate administration service agreements with the following companies, which are currently its subsidiaries:
- Auto Club Indemnity Company
- Auto Club Casualty Company
Both these companies operate in Texas. Consequently, the Exchange provides administrative services to these insurance providers.
The most notable affiliation agreement was one made in 2006 among the following companies:
- Auto Club Exchange
- Auto Club of Southern California
- Auto Club Enterprises Insurance Group
- Automobile Club of Missouri
- Automobile Club Inter-Insurance Exchange
- Auto Club Family Insurance Company
- ACSC Management Services
- Club Exchange Corporation
Part of the agreement resulted in an inter-company pooling agreement between Auto Club Exchange, Auto Club Family Insurance Company, and Automobile Club Inter-Insurance Exchange.
Besides organic growth, the Exchange has also grown through acquisitions. Although there have been several over the years, the latest was Motor Club Insurance Company’s acquisition in 2017. The Motor Club Insurance Company is domiciled on Rhode Island.
As a policyholder, your biggest concern is often whether the company is financially strong enough to pay out your claim. You will definitely be pleased to know that the Auto Club Exchange is financially stable and can comfortably meet its financial obligations to its customers. It has been rated A+ (Superior) by A.M. Best.
The company also has strong financial backing. Both the inter-company pooling agreement and the backing of ACSC mean you are in safe hands. Auto Exchange is not a publicly-traded company and therefore has no market cap, and neither does ACSC.
Auto Club Exchange enjoys significant popularity like its parent company, Auto Club of Southern California. It has enjoyed significant growth over the years to become one of the biggest providers with excellent financial stability and thus has the ability to pay out claims.
