Does GEICO offer good coverage in Mexico?

I'm currently with GEICO and I know they offer coverage in Mexico. Is it good or should I look at a travel insurance company?

Answer
GEICO offers Mexican car insurance that’s comparable to many other U.S.-based car insurance companies.
A policy from GEICO covers:
  • Physical damage to your vehicle
  • Liability damage for damages to other people’s vehicles, property, and/or injuries
  • Vandalism
  • Partial theft
  • Medical payments for injuries to you
  • Roadside assistance
GEICO also has a dedicated staff to handle any claims or issues you have, plus, they offer a few quote. You can request a quote online or call customer service at 1-888-713-3312.
In comparison, several insurance companies dedicate their business to travel insurance and travel auto insurance. Some popular companies offering Mexican auto insurance for travelers are:
  • Mexpro
  • Acceptance Insurance
  • Baja Bound
The coverage these companies offer vary, but they’ll typically have multiple options or tiers. The basic level offers liability coverage that meets Mexico’s minimum required coverage.
Even if you like GEICO’s coverage, it doesn’t hurt to look into other carriers or travel insurance companies. Shopping around will give you a good idea of the coverages that are available. You may also find a better rate for the coverage you need. Use the Jerry app to compare U.S. quotes from top insurers that also provide the Mexican coverage you need.
