Motorcycle Insurance Mexico

Was thinking of buying my bike insurance online before I head into mexico. But the shortest policy always seems to be 6 months. I would just need 3 months. Anyone buy shorter policies when in Mexico or even online?

Talking I have used this place many times

Mexican Auto Insurance Online - MexAdventure.com - Adventure Mexican Insurance

I have used this company several times. You pick how many days you want (depending on the number of days, a longer contract might be cheaper). Be sure to specify "$0" value if you only want liability only). Pay with card and print it out right there. Eazy Peazy

Thanks Rick did look at them and others. What I find is that after 30-35 days you need to go straight to a 6 month policy. Seems no option for 45-90 days. We are not talking serious money when you go liability only anyways so I will go six months and enjoy the country as long as I want.

Have you ever had to place a claim?

I have never needed to place a claim (actually in the 15 or so trips I have taken to Mexico, I have NEVER been asked to see my insurance papers) I do have a friend though that bought thru them and also bought collision (or what ever they call it). He had a wreck and totaled his Harley Road Glide. It took them a LONG time but they actually paid a great price for his wreck. I just buy liability only as I have always been told that the best move if there is a bad wreck is pay up and move along very quickly (BEFORE the cops get involved).

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
