Traveling to Mexico? Don't Forget Your Mexico Tourist Insurance!

As you begin to get ready to travel south of the border, there are several things to keep in mind. One of your top priorities should be to have adequate travel insurance coverage throughout the duration of your trip. It's important to note that once you cross the border, your United States Insurance policy does not cross over with you. Meaning, it will no longer be recognized in Mexico. Whether you are on a family vacation or traveling for a business trip, Mexico Tourist Insurance can give you the protection you need.

What does it cover?

If you plan on traveling to Mexico in your car, RV, motorcycle, or with a travel trailer or commercial trailer, the good news is that Mexico Tourist Insurance can provide the much needed coverage for any of these vehicles. No one ever wants to get caught in an auto accident, but if an incident were to occur, your Mexico Tourist Insurance will cover property damage due to collision, including overturning, strikes and riots, natural disasters, fire, lighting, theft and even a catastrophic explosion. Additionally, it provides 24 hour roadside assistance, legal aid and medical expenses for the vehicle's occupants. It also offers 3rd party liability insurance coverage if you were to hit another vehicle or driver.

Why do you need Insurance when traveling to Mexico?

One may argue – Can't I just purchase insurance while I'm at the border? Well, yes but do we recommend it? No. The reason for this is because it can end up costing you more than you would have expected and the coverage you are able to purchase may be limited. It's important to protect your vehicle just like you would in the United States because if responsible for an accident and you injure the other person, by law if you do not have insurance you can be taken to jail and have your vehicle impounded, which wouldn't sound like much of a fun trip.
