Liability: $ 70K
Legal aid and bail bond $ 20K
Road assistance: $ 300 dlls

Nothing for rider and pillion, but I already have Insurance for accident/sickness/hospitalization, plus emerg evac with the Global Star (SPOT) policy. So no need for anything else than above.

This is for a year, I think it's a bit high, but It looks like shorter term policies are even more expensive. Mexadventure gives various instant quotes between 380.00 and 514.00, depending on deductible and liability amount and hospitalization for rider and pillion.

Those are US companies, I wonder if I would get a significantly better price if I get the insurance from a Mexican vendor after crossing the border.

Saying this I know the nature of insurance, so will likely not need it, and paying more does not necessarily mean a better policy.

I also plan on to leave for Argentina around Sept-Oct 2013, and will go through Mexico again, so a year policy would actually make sense.

Just wondering what others have done in the recent past.

The ones I've tried won't even give me a quote until it's less than 6 mos.....
"...when I handed the 40 ouncer to him, he got that far off stare that a cat gets when it just gets done licking its ass for the last 15". Yeah, THAT stare." -WTF-Over
"Don't come in here with your thoughtfulness, empathy, and reason... this is shit, up with which, I shall not put." -Boondoggle
