Mexico Travel Insurance


Mexico Travel Insurance 

Mexico is a popular vacation spot, especially for Americans. Every day, a million people cross the Mexican-U.S. border in both directions. Many Americans find it more economical to drive compared to flying to their destination but are not aware that their car insurance policy is not valid in Mexico. This is is where Mexico travel insurance comes into play.

If you are considering entering Mexico by car, you car will need a vehicle permit. Vehicle permits cost $44 and must be paid with a credit card. If you do not have a credit card, a bond and a processing fee will be applied. Permits must be kept on the windshield during your stay.

In order to get a vehicle permit, you will need:

  • Proof of car ownership
  • Proof of registration
  • An affidavit from any lien holders
  • A valid driver’s license
  • Proof of citizenship

You will be asked to present a passport when leaving and reentering the U.S. All children and infants are required to have passports. If you are traveling with children, you must also provide proof of legal rights. Divorcees will need divorce and custody papers and a notarized letter of consent from the other parent.

Once you enter the Mexico, your car insurance policy will not be valid. You will need to insure your car with Mexico traveling insurance. Mexico does not recognize car insurance policies from the U.S. If you are involved in a collision, your car insurance policy for the U.S. will not cover any damages. An accident is already a stressful situation and one without good Mexico auto insurance is sure to make it even worse.

The risk and consequences are too high to consider traveling uninsured. Fortunately, Mexico travel insurance is affordable compared to the replacement value of damaged or lost property or potential medical treatment.

Mexican vehicle insurance policies are priced by the day and may be purchased for up to sixty days. Your Mexican travel insurance policy will be active the day your cross into Mexican territory.
