Mexico Travel Insurance
Let insurance navy help you get insured!
If you are thinking about traveling to Mexico by car, you will need two things: a vehicle permit and a Mexico Travel Insurance policy. Your car insurance policy does not cover you in Mexico, so you need Mexico Travel insurance in order to be covered for damages.
A vehicle permit is required in Mexico and usually costs around $45 and must be paid for using a credit card. If you do not have a credit card, then there will be a bond and a processing fee. 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
Upon Entering Mexico
Once inside the Mexico border your car insurance policy is no longer valid. However, if you purchase Mexico Travel Insurance, you are covered. Additionally, a policy’s cost is based on a day by day basis for up to 60 days of coverage.
Other Necessary Documentation For Mexico Travel
You will have to present a passport when leaving and reentering the U.S. Additionally, it’s necessary for all children and infants 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.
* Please review your own policy carefully for details on travel insurance coverage. Some coverage varies by policy.
