Planning a Road Trip to Mexico?-Make Sure You Have the Proper Coverage

Are you planning a road trip to Mexico? It is important that you pack the right type of auto insurance!

Most likely, your current auto insurance will not cover any types of damages or injuries sustained in Mexico. This is because Mexico operates under different insurance laws and requires visitors to get at the very least liability insurance that is up to Mexico standards. This is not as difficult as it sounds, it’s just a quick call to AZ Insurance Team.

How does a Mexico auto Policy Work?: For most insurance providers, you are able to buy Mexico auto insurance in 24 hour increments. It is important to keep this in mind because if you went over your time limit on your Mexico coverage and got into an accident after your time has expired, then your insurance company will not cover the damages or injuries associated. For this reason it is always recommended to buy more time than you think you need.

What types of coverage can I get for my road trip?: The types of coverage offered to clients driving through Mexico are:

  • Collision damage coverage (cost of repairs to your car)

  • Liability coverage

  • Theft and vandalism coverage

  • Uninsured motorist coverage

  • Roadside Assistance

  • Plane tickets home (if stranded)

Important note: Since Mexico auto insurance is sold in 24 hour increments, it is important that you file your claim while in Mexico to avoid having your claim be denied.
