Why Do I Need Mexico Auto Insurance?

Mexico does not recognize foreign insurance, and you will need financial proof in case of an accident. Mexican authorities require liability coverage issued by a Mexican Insurance Company. U.S. and Canadian insurance do not cover your vehicle from physical damage or theft while in Mexico.
