F.S. 647.07
647.07 Travel insurance policy.
(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of the Florida Insurance Code, travel insurance shall be classified and filed for purposes of rates and forms under the inland marine line of insurance; however, travel insurance that provides coverage for sickness, accident, disability, or death occurring during travel, either exclusively or in conjunction with related coverages of emergency evacuation or repatriation of remains, or incidental limited property and casualty benefits, such as baggage or trip cancellation, may be classified and filed for purposes of rates and forms under either the accident and health line of insurance or the inland marine line of insurance.
(2) Travel insurance may be in the form of an individual, group, or blanket policy. Group or blanket policies are classified as commercial inland marine insurance under s. 627.021(2)(d). Travel insurance policies not issued to a commercial entity and primarily used for personal, family, or household purposes are considered personal inland marine insurance and shall not be subject to s. 627.062. Sections of policies or endorsements for travel insurance which are considered personal inland marine insurance consisting of travel assistance services or cancellation fee waivers are not subject to s. 627.410.
(3) Travel insurance programs may be developed and provided based on travel protection plans designed for individual or identified marketing or distribution channels.
