The vast majority of Mexican vacations go off without hitches. You can dramatically increase your odds of having a smooth, worry-free vacation by investing in top-quality Mexican car insurance coverage. Once you are protected by a good policy, you can explore everything that Mexico has to offer. Every now and then, though, trouble can arise. If your vehicle is impounded, you need to know that only the registered owner of the vehicle is allowed to sign for its release. If you are involved in an accident, or if your car is stolen, your policy will kick in to help you get back on track in no time flat.
In case of an impounded vehicle, the registered owner is the only one authorized to sign for its release and it must be done in person.
If you happen to be involved in a vehicular accident, it is vital that you report it to the authorities ASAP, and always before leaving Mexico if you want your claim to be taken seriously. Do otherwise and your company has no legal obligation to pay any loss even if your claim would have been covered.
An automobile accident is more than just a chance event - it a felony in Mexico. They can take your car (impounded for sale to help pay damages they deem you have done to others) and put you in jail, so protect yourself financially and purchase quality coverage. Claims for Property Damage to third parties are settled on an "actual cash value" basis, guided by Law.
It may be important to understand, that coverage you purchase from any insurer will not respond to claims or suits brought against you in the United States or Canada for a loss which occurred in Mexico. All liability claims under a policy must be reported before leaving the country for the policy to apply. You should ask questions such as, does the insurer include Legal Assistance, Bail Bond, Roadside Assistance at no extra cost?
Are the more serious claims handled in the United States, saving you the time, frustration, and expense of traveling South of the border multiple times to fullfill your legal obligations? Does your carrier allow you to repair your vehicle in the US or Canada, not just Mexico?
Are you purchasing a snail mail handwritten paper policy from a local agent? or an electronic policy, instantly available to your carrier?

My boyfriend led a group of motorcycle riders on a 17-day trip through Mexico. I bought a Chubb Platinum policy for my BMW G310R from Mexican Insurance Store. During the trip, I crashed after hitting a pothole in a blind corner. I was uninjured mainly because of my Alpine Stars Tech Air Jacket which inflated like an airbag to keep me safe. The bike on the other hand had significant damage and was inoperable. I called CHUBB to file a claim and an adjuster met me to take photos of the bike and assist me in getting it operational. I indicated I wanted to get my bike repaired in the USA and they noted it. The bike was fully restored at Irv Seaver BMW in Orange County, California. Working with Chubb was professional and easy. I got the maximum payout in a couple of weeks. Whenever I need insurance for a Mexico trip, I'm always going to Mexican Insurance Store. Thanks!!!

Not only does Mexican Insurance Store have the best prices but they are honest and friendly with patience to explain your policy. I have been with them for three years. The price went down this third year. They could have easily said the cost was the same but were honest enough to say it went down. I have now clocked in over 100 horseback rides galloping on the beach in La Mission with Horses by Jose because I can confidently cross into Mexico with reliable insurance.
I just purchased a policy! I had a couple of questions so I called and a real person answered!! They answered all of my questions and took the time to explain different coverages to me. The Customer Service was beyond my expectations!! Great Company and Excellent Customer Service!! They have definitely gained a loyal customer for life!!

I'm delighted to give Mexican Insurance Store my highest rating. They are a brokerage for several top-rated insurers for Mexican Auto Insurance. I use them to insure my motorcycles and car when traveling south of the border with no effort. Recently, I needed to file a claim for a motorcycle tip-over in Mexico (I wasn't on the bike) and it was handled professionally and quickly. Much quicker than my US insurance. When looking for Mexican Car Insurance, this is the best and safest way to go!
Booking insurance for a trip to Mexico is so easy using their online tool. I wish they had an app so I could just click and buy a policy on the way to Mexico.
Outstanding service! I have been purchasing my Mexican insurance from this company for years. Highly recommended!

Buying my policy was fast and easy. I didn't need to use my policy, but having it during a drive where we were stopped for an inspection kept my mind at ease.
