Insurance Markets for Your Clients


Mexico Auto Coverage: ‘Tis the Season!

Nov 21, 2019
The Mexico Tourism Department estimates that 26 million autos enter Mexico from the U.S. annually. Now is the time of year when travel to Mexico spikes. Travelers heading south this are going for the weather, for vacation, to visit family and to enjoy the holidays. More than 80% of Mexican auto insurance policies are sold in the last quarter of the year.

Make sure your Mexico-bound clients are properly insured.Since their U.S. Insurance policy is not accepted by Mexico Insurance Law, they will need a separate Mexican Tourist Auto policy.

IIAT Advantage and International Insurance Group (IIG) offer IIAT members an instant quote, print and purchase online policy service for travel in Mexico. By providing only “A” rated Mexican underwriters, your client will not only be legal according to Mexico law, but insured by a quality financial stable trusted insurance company while traveling. Liability insurance is required, with options to additional coverage like collision and theft. Legal assistance and roadside assistance is included in all policies.

The IIG online system is quick and easy to use. Your client can purchase online, or with you directly. IIG provides you, the agent, a custom direct-to-client link that you are able to post on your website or social media. It is a consumer-friendly way for them to self-issue at home or after hours, while you still make commissions! And of course, if a customer wants to purchase with you, in-office or over the phone, just log in and start up a quote.

Terms available are as short as a day or as long as a year. If your client is ready to purchase, just take payment and print out their proof of insurance. Or if they prefer to wait and purchase later, you can email them the quote to finish up online at their own convenience. You can quote, compare, and buy online. Your customer can get proper proof of insurance and hit the road in just minutes!

If you have issued Mexico policies with IIAT in the past, just log in, and your client’s vehicle information is saved and ready to go. Merely plug in the new travel dates and take payment. If you are unsure of your login credentials, or this is your first time, not a problem.
