Best Auto Insurance for Snowbirds in Mexico
Canadians and Americans travelling to Mexico for the winter need to purchase Mexican auto insurance for all vehicles, including cars, buses, RVs, vans and motorcycles. The instant your vehicle crosses into Mexico, your Canadian or USA insurance ceases to be valid and you are required to have a Mexican policy to be protected.
Many first-time "snowbirds” or visitors who neglect to purchase Mexican insurance before arriving at the border find themselves buying coverage from agents on-site at the Mexican customs office. These border agents charge significantly more because travelers have no alternative but to purchase from them at that point.
