Traveling to Baja California can be an exciting experience. However, a road trip through Baja needs planning ahead. Crossing from California to Baja is one of the quickest and easiest port crossings, since you do not need a Temporary Vehicle Importation Permit while staying on the Baja peninsula.
Since January of 2012, Baja California Norte, requires you to have Third Party Liability coverage issued by a Mexican Insurance company. Even if your US auto policy says that you have coverage within the 25 miles from the border in Mexico. This is not sufficient proof of financial responsibility in Mexico. If your vehicle is financed, selecting the right policy can be complex, which is why the agents at Sanborn’s Mexico Auto Insurance are here to help you learn more about the Mexican auto insurance policy you need.
Mexican Auto Insurance
Before traveling to Mexico, you must acquire the right auto insurance policy. Standard U.S. auto insurance policies are not recognized in Mexico and you will be required to show proof of financial responsibility in case of an accident, such as a Mexico Auto Insurance Policy. If no insurance is provided, you will be required to pay the expenses and fines out of pocket. Protect your road trip with the coverage you need.
Why Is Mexican Auto Insurance Required?
Mexican auto insurance is required by law in Mexico in all federal highways and bridges and the state of Baja requires it as well. A typical Mexican auto insurance policy might include coverage options such as:
- Physical damage and theft
- Third-party liability insurance
- Excess liability in case of the death of a third party
- Medical expenses
- Legal and bail bond
- Roadside assistance
We also offer additional coverage such as Premier Package, including Vandalism, Partial Theft, Deductible Waiver, Pet coverage, and Gap if your vehicle is financed.. Reach out to our agency today to learn more.
