Many visitors to Mexico, don’t know or may not think it’s important and required by law to carry Mexican auto insurance as soon as you cross the border.
Here’s what to know:
- Mexican auto insurance can be purchased in 24-hour increments. Drivers get to decide the time and date their coverage begins. The more days they buy, the cheaper it gets per day
- Mexican auto insurance can be bought ahead of time so that you’re not scrambling the day of your visit.
- Adjusters speak English and will usually respond to the scene within a half-hour
- Consider binational insurance if you travel to Mexico several times a month. It might be cheaper than carrying two policies
