14. Why are the insurance laws different South of the Border?
In general, the law in Mexico is based on Napoleonic Code where guilt is assumed over innocence. The law in the U.S. is based on English
Common Law where innocence prevails over the assumption of guilt. Therefore, if you are involved in an accident in Mexico, you must have cash or an auto policy to respond to the damages or injuries that authorities deem were caused by you. If you don't have either, your vehicle could be permanently confiscated or you may spend many hours or days in jail until your financial obligations are met.
15. What happens if I have an accident?
All claims must be reported in Mexico to yout insurer's adjustor/claims service center BEFORE you leave the country.
Failing to do so subjects the claim to denial by the insurer.
16. Is my coverage good anywhere in Mexico?
Yes, our policies provide insurance coverage within all of Mexico, unless otherwise stated.
17. How much will daily, weekly, monthly, 6 month or annual coverage cost?
Policies are available from 1 day to 365 days a year. The cost of a policy depends on how long you want to insure your vehicle. Most policies
are calculated based on a daily rate. After 20-25 days it is usually less expensive to purchase a 6 month or annual plan.
18. Can't I just buy Mexican Car Insurance at the Border?
A lot of people plan their vacation, then forget all about auto insurance until they cross the border... then they proceed to buy coverage
at the nearest booth. This is the equivalent of buying your groceries at 7-11: no matter how well you shop, you're going to pay too much,
and your options will be limited, too. You don't even have the option of researching those insurers that vend at the border. Is it unrated
bar bones coverage? It's smarter to buy it online before you leave.
19. What if we have two drivers or registered owners?
The registered owner must be listed. Any driver with a valid driver's license, and the owner's permission to drive is covered. Having said
this, we included enough space within the named insured field to accommodate the addition of two drivers in order to make it easy for the
authorities to verify coverage should there be an accident. There is NO extra cost.
20. How much liability coverage should I buy?
Each person's financial situation and appetite for risk is different. We are able to provide liability coverage from $50,000 up to $500,000.
Check your domestic policy limits and use them as a rough guide. Check the ARTICLES section. We have written about this subject.
21. Can I insure limos or other vehicles for hire?
No. Limos or other vehicles for hire whether for public transportation of passengers or cargo are prohibited from all programs. (Rental Cars
with U.S. plates driving into Mexico are OK.)
22. What other important things should I know about Insurance for Mexico?
Coverage applies only within the territory of Mexico and must be adjudicated in Mexico. Policies do not respond if for example, two California
drivers are involved in an accident and bring suit against each other in the United States.
23. What if I am going to be towing a vehicle, trailer or boat?
The towed vehicle, trailer or boat must be listed on the policy with the towing vehicle. Otherwise, the towing vehicle's
policy coverage is voided in the event of an accident or loss. Contact 1-888-800-9988.
24. What about questions regarding the towing of cars, trucks, trailers, motorhomes, RV's, motorcycles or ATV's?

influence of drugs or alcohol.

In case of total theft of the vehicle, the owner of the vehicle or the person who had possession of the vehicle must file a Theft report in
person with the proper law enforsement authorities.
