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 the need for the insurance was 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, including a quote in Spanish. A variety of coverage amounts and deductibles are available. However, it is recommended that when buying coverage, it should equal the coverage amount of your domestic auto insurance.
