Every policy sold at MexInsurance.com® automatically includes AVQ. A comprehensive Roadside Assistance in Mexico package
AVQ – Asistencia Vial Qualitas (means “Quálitas Trip Assistance”) is a program for roadside assistance in Mexico. MexInsurance.com® helped in the design and implementation of the program back in 2015. It helps tourists who suffer flat tires, engine breakdown or a flat tire. In addition, other benefits include towing, rental car, locksmith, taxi, hotel stays and so much more. The idea behind the program is to encourage travelers to drive in Mexico without fear of being without help.

Mexico Roadside Assistance
The AVQ Roadside Assistance map below shows the difference between “Mile 0” and “Travel”. In the chart above Mile 0 is within 20 miles of the border ad “Travel” is beyond that. So to give an example if you are in Tijuana, you have unlimited instances of towing. But, because Tijuana is in Mile 0, you can only tow it 50 Km. However, if you are in “Travel”, say San Felipe, then you get 125km of towing, unlimited times per year.
With the benefits available to clients through AVQ, visitors to Mexico can drive with confidence. If the car breaks down, MexInsurance.com® clients can file a claim and have someone come right out to help.
