Señor Mex says: This article points out that pet food will experience an increase in cost because of a sales tax hike. The January 1, 2014, implementation of the increase may affect you if you plan to buy pet food while traveling with your animal in Mexico. The article also notes that as many as 13 million animals may live on the streets in Mexico. It’s important to keep this in mind as you travel. This is because animal strikes can be a common cause of accidents. It’s important to keep your cool in case of hitting an animal to avoid excessive damage to your vehicle. Recognize that liability-only Mexico insurance coverage won’t address your personal losses in such an incident, making full-coverage Mexico insurance an important choice.
Verify that your liability limits are high enough for the states you visit. This is because your encounter with an animal can compound your existing problems. For example, you may have have a problem already with motorists following close behind you. Although the increase may not significantly affect your travel budget, it’s helpful to keep it in mind if your travel funds are tight. Mexico is the 10th greatest market for commercial pet food, and it’s estimated that approximately half of the country’s pet owners use commercial food.
