17B Travel Applicants: Please note the difference between 17B Travel and Limited Lines Producer Travel license types is the required licensure of those travel retailers selling travel insurance (such as travel agents). Before 17B Travel was enacted, travel retailers were required to have the limited lines license under Travel. With the enactment of 17B Travel, those travel retailers are now able to offer travel insurance under a licensed insurance producer, meaning the travel retailers themselves do not need a license, as long as the consumer protections outlined in Chapter 17B are met. If those consumer protections are not met, then Chapter 17 would continue to apply to the travel retailers. The Chapter 17B licensees are also required to maintain registers that include the names and required information of all the travel retailers offering travel insurance under the authority of the Chapter 17B licensee and are responsible for the oversight and compliance of the travel retailers. Please contact the Delaware Department of Insurance for more information on the license type distinction.
Applicants that have been inactive for less than one (1) year with a license status of non-renewed or not CE compliant must late renew using the Resident Renewal Application.
