Mexican auto insurance is now being offered by the website, TotalTravelInsurance.com, to U.S. drivers looking to cruise across the border. In a release issued by the site, the company stated insurance was needed due to Mexico's increasing popularity for road trips and holiday vacations.
Although it is not mandatory to purchase Mexican auto insurance when crossing into Mexico, U.S. or Canadian auto insurance will not suffice, the release states. The driver must have proof of Mexican insurance or be able to pay for damages. Travelers can access a free quote from the site. A quote in Spanish is also accessible. A variety of coverage amounts and deductibles are available, though it is recommended to buy coverage that equals the coverage amount of your domestic auto insurance. (JP)
