Mexico requires that you have Mexican auto insurance if you are in an accident even if it is not your fault. If you are in an accident and you do not have insurance or the ability to settle immediately you might be detained. It is the law that you carry Mexico Insurance or "proof of financial responsibility" while driving in Mexico.

Some U.S. insurance companies will cover you for a certain distance across the border usually either 25 to 50 miles and they do not cover damages to other parties. We would not recommend that you rely on your U.S. policy in the case of an accident in Mexico. Even though your policy has the potential of coverage it will not be recognized by the Mexico officials. Yes, you might have the ability to submit a claim to your U.S. insurer but that will not help you at the scene of an accident in Mexico. If you decide to use your U.S. policy to cover your vehicle you should make sure to have a Mexico policy that covers liability.

For example, while in Mexico you caused a serious highway accident in which you hit and totaled another car, resulting in several injuries needing medical attention. After it was found that you were legally responsible for the accident, you would be required to reimburse the driver and passenger in the car you hit for medical expenses they incurred, plus other expenses as determined by the Mexican court, and the value of their vehicle. The liability component of your insurance policy, be it liability-only or full coverage, would pay for any of these expenses up to the limit on the policy.

Auto insurance in Baja is a great deal less expensive than in the U.S. and if you are planning on traveling back and forth more than a few times a year it is recommended to purchase a 6 month or 1 Year policy. Not all Mexico insurance companies are the same and it is worth it to do your homework. We can tell you first hand that it is important to work with a reputable insurance company that is accessible in the case of an accident.

Once again here is the company we use and recommend to all our clients.
