Travel insurance. Provides for the sale of travel insurance by limited lines property and casualty agents. Travel retailers are authorized to offer and disseminate travel insurance under a limited lines travel insurance agent business entity license upon compliance with certain requirements, including maintaining a register, designating a responsible licensed producer, and providing training to certain employees. Travel retailers offering or disseminating travel insurance shall make available written materials that provide the information about the insurer and the limited lines travel insurance agent, explain that the purchase of travel insurance is not required in order to purchase any other product or service, and explain that an unlicensed travel retailer is not authorized to answer technical questions about the terms and conditions of the insurance offered. A travel retailer offering and disseminating travel insurance under the direction and license of a limited lines travel insurance agent may not be compensated based primarily on the number of customers who purchase travel insurance coverage. Travel insurance does not include medical protection for travelers with trips lasting six months or longer. Medical coverage for trips lasting six months or longer is defined as "travel health insurance," which may be sold by limited lines life and health agents. Read the Bill »
