Mexico Auto Insurance

Many tourists make the serious mistake of assuming their U.S. or Canadian auto policy will cover a liability accident in Mexico. In fact, the Mexican Government does not recognize U.S. or Canadian insurance policies in Mexico. In case of an accident you must provide proof of liability insurance provided by an authorized Mexican insurer or you must have enough cash in your pocket to pay for the damages you caused in the accident. Without either legitimate Mexican insurance or enough cash in your pocket, by law, your vehicle could be impounded and/or the driver will be jailed.
