Driving to Mexico: Travel Checklist
If you’re planning to drive to Mexico from California – or Arizona, Texas, or New Mexico, for that matter – it’s important that you’re prepared. While most locals are well-versed in how to cross the border safely and efficiently, many tourists often get hung up at the border, purchasing Mexican auto insurance and vehicle permits before they can legally cross.
In this post, we’ll take a look at everything you need to cross, as well as some important things to consider, in order to get the most out of your trip to Mexico.
Mexican Vehicle Insurance – Because the Mexican government does not recognize U.S. vehicle insurance, motorists traveling into Mexico must purchase Mexican auto insurance. Just like in the U.S., you can purchase a comprehensive policy, or one that carries the minimum liability. Policies can be short-term or long-term, depending on the length of your trip.
