Many California residents head to Mexico every year, whether it is to vacation, surf or to see ancient sites. Since Mexico is so close, many just hop in their car and head south for an adventure! But many people do not realize that most likely your U.S.-based car insurance will not cover you in Mexico. Auto insurance coverage is required by Mexican Federal Liability Law, meaning that they take this very seriously, so we will share the most popular policies to keep you insured while you are in Mexico.
The best part about this kind of insurance? It typically is VERY affordable for short-duration trips.
|Limited Mexico Coverage|
This kind of policy is great if you are staying close to the U.S. border. For many insurance companies, they will cover you up to 75 miles from the U.S./Mexico border. For a day trip, or just doing something close, this could be a good option.
Liability Insurance in Mexico
Mexican law requires all drivers to have liability insurance that covers you in Mexico. If you are responsible for a car accident, this covers bodily injuries and property damage to others.

Since liability insurance will not cover damage to your car or injuries to you or your passengers, there are other policies to consider: physical damage coverage, medical payments, roadside assistance and medical evacuation.
