Oscar Padilla, the oldest and largest for nearly 70 years and still #1. Best rates, and free quick quote! If you are planning to go to Mexico by car, you should equip yourself with Mexico auto insurance. Neither U.S. nor Canadian policy is valid in Mexico so you need to get yourself covered in case of an accident before you hit the road. The easiest and quickest way to do that is buy your insurance policy online. Here's how.

Find a reliable Mexico insurance provider

Make sure that you buy your policy through an authorized Mexican auto insurance provider. You can do an online research, get a free quote from different carriers and compare prices. Keep in mind that price is not all you need to check.

The provider you choose should offer coverage from a reliable Mexican auto insurance carrier and, of great importance, provide adequate limits of liability. A limit of liability under $300,000. is inadequate and is too-often used as a means to promote a low rate. It is very unadvisable to purchase such a policy. A $300,000. limit of liability is an acceptable minimum, but no less!

Information you need to provide

To get your Mexico auto insurance policy online be prepared to enroll the name of the registered owner of the vehicle (and/or name of primary driver if owner won’t be traveling), as well as the license plate number, and the year and make of the car. You will need to set the dates and exact hour your policy starts and ends, keeping in mind the period of coverage runs in 24 hour cycle.

There are usually several pricing options, such as daily, weekly, six-month or annual policy. A general rule of thumb is if your trip to Mexico exceeds 21 days, a six-month policy is a far greater deal.

If you are towing something you must list it on the policy. Failing to list it will void coverage if an insurance claim were to be filed.

If your automobile is financed or leased, in some cases you may need to get written permission from your lien holder or leasing company to cross the border with your vehicle.

Choose your preferred policy

The Mexican law requires all drivers to show proof of financial responsibility and have at least a liability-only Mexican auto insurance policy in case of an accident. However, it is recommended that you choose the option which will get you and other passengers in the vehicle covered, as well.

Unlike your U.S. insurance policy, Mexico auto insurance is a Named Peril policy. Only what is specifically termed as covered in the policy will be covered. Nothing more, nothing less.

Here are five basic risks to standard Mexico auto insurance for tourists:

  • Collision, Upset, and Glass Breakage
  • Fire and Total Theft
  • Property Damage Liability
  • Bodily Injury Liability
  • Medical Expenses

If you buy your policy from Oscar Padilla Mexican Insurance, you will also get Legal Service, Bail Bond, and road service reimbursement as an added bonus.
