insurance for Mexico

I realize this question has probably been asked a few bizillion times but the search engine and I are not friends so here it comes again.

Which online company is the best value for buying insurance for riding in Mexico? I need coverage for about 21 days.

When I was in Baja in May I used Bonita West Mexico Insurance Services.

https://www.bonitawest.com/Costco/frm_Home.asp

They had the lowest rates I could find for my 2003 R1150GS-Adventure. They only offer liability insurance for motorcycles though. I didn't have an issue with liability only on a 2003. Now I'm riding a 2013 that will be a lot more painful if totaled.

How about other companies that offer full coverage for motorcycles in Mexico. Does anyone have any suggestions on who offers the best value?

Mexadventue is the one I use. Never had a claim though. Knock on wood.

You can usually pick from different companies / options depending on your needs.

Chris at mexadventure, he mailed me some free maps once also, thought that was a nice gesture.

I just bought mine through Bajabound.com

It was $90 for six months of liability only insurance. I think it was $350 for full coverage.

I figured as much but when I used the search engine with the words Mexico Insurance it gave me 500 pages with the first link being Cute Dog Photo's.

just copy this into the Google search blank:

site:advrider.com Mexico insurance

Just like that, no quotes

The return will be clickable threads filled with research on this topic

And...

site:advrider.com

is just the first half of the protocol

you can replace

Mexico insurance after that with anything you want to search for on ADV

Give it a try and have fun with it

I've used a couple of different sellers & all are easily found via google. The price varies some but not much & FWIW there are many that sell but only a couple of underwriters that back up the policy & they all have an 800# that dials up "them" in Mexico-once you buy it your going to contact the "main company" if the need comes about. Cruise all the websites you find & I think you'll see a chart that shows the underwriters & the products. The crummy part for me is the pricing is either for too short a time or too long as I go over a month but way less than 6 months. If I was down there constantly as some here it would be better to go for a year policy at a time or two 6 months periods with a gap of sorts.
www.mexicoinsurance.com www.mexadventure.com www.rockypointautoinsurance.com www.mexicanautoins.com & baja as above are in my mix. Also consider health/accident insurance via someone in USA like www.insuremytrip.com -there are many choices and one that gets you/and/or your machine home is a consideration. It's a roll of the dice there cause for any more typical medical need there you can just pay out of pocket. Toothache,a few stitches etc. will cost less than a policy. You could also call Obama's people (he has others to answer easy questions I think) & ask if the new stuff covers you when your having fun?
Keep Salma out of this, you can't afford the girl...
