Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to have a separate Mexico car insurance policy?
In Mexico you are legally required to have liability insurance for your vehicle, like most states in the US. Your insurance provides proof of financial responsibility, which is important because if you cannot provide that you have this in the event of an accident, you could be detained until Mexican authorities determine how you can pay for any damage you caused to people or property. Your American auto insurance is not recognized by Mexican authorities and if it extends coverage into Mexico there will be many restrictions and limitations on it. In order to protect yourself, you should always purchase Mexico car insurance before crossing the border.
Can I purchase Mexico car insurance online?
Yes! We strive to make the process quick and easy by offering Mexico car insurance online. Simply get a quote and purchase your policy in minutes from your phone or computer!
Do I need a Mexico car insurance policy for a rental car?
If you are renting a car in Mexico, you will likely have the option of purchasing insurance through the rental agency. However, the coverage will be limited and it’s a good idea to purchase extra coverage.

If you are renting a car in the U.S. to drive into Mexico, you can purchase insurance at the border, or better yet, get Mexico car insurance online before you leave. You will need to purchase tourist car insurance for your foreign-plated vehicle and we offer great coverage for these vehicles online. We do not insure vehicles that are rented in Mexico with Mexican license plates.
