No matter how well you plan for a vacation, you can forget important details as you get on your way. If you are traveling by plane to a foreign country, you may have a hard time making any progress without your passport. However, crossing the border by car is a bit easier, especially if you are heading south into Mexico. It’s rare that you would need to show your passport or your Mexican insurance for travelers. You may not even realize that you’ve forgotten these things until you are across the border. What are your options if you forget your Mexico car insurance policy?
Need to Buy Mexican Insurance for Travelers
If you’ve inadvertently crossed the border without buying your Mexican insurance for travelers, there are a couple of options. Some motorists figure that they can stop at sales houses on the Mexico side of the border. The hours of operation may not be predictable. And it’s possible that you will cross when authorities close these booths. If they are open, you can’t really rely on the quality and validity of their products. A spur-of-the-moment purchase may be a waste of cash.
Fortunately, you can access information about your Mexico car insurance policy from a Web connection on your wireless device or at an Internet shop. It’s easy to find the site, get a quote and make a purchase. Your Internet-driven policy is instantly transmitted to authorities so that if you have a problem, especially if you have a collision, your coverage can be verified. At an Internet shop, you should be able to pay to print a copy of your coverage. If you purchase from your wireless device, make sure that you get copies made at your earliest possible opportunity. In a pinch, you may be able to provide basic information based on the emailed information on your wireless device, but a hard copy of the information is always advisable.
Already Bought Your Insurance Policy but Forgot Copies?
If you managed to reach the border lacking copies of your auto coverage, don’t panic. You should make a fresh copy at your earliest opportunity. As such, you can expect your insurance provider to transmit your information into Mexican databases upon your completion of a purchase. Watch for an Internet shop with printers to make copies.
