Mexican Car Accident
Complete Coverage includes Damage to YOUR vehicle

No matter where you’re traveling, it’s important to stay safe–and if you plan to bring your car along, you should also take steps to keep it safe and secure. Just like in the U.S., vehicles are stolen every day in Mexico. In some areas, vandalism to autos is also a problem. The best course of action for drivers, of course, is to have a Mexican car insurance policy that covers you for theft, but it’s also helpful to keep the following tips in mind so that you can reduce your risks and drive safely while enjoying Mexico’s sights and attractions.

Secure Your Vehicle in Mexico: Lock it 

Many drivers are in the habit of leaving their vehicle unlocked. That’s a habit you’ll need to break when driving in Mexico. Whether you’re staying at a hotel in Guadalajara or camping outside San Felipe, you should always keep your vehicle’s doors locked. An open door can be an invitation to thieves–and even if they don’t steal your car, they could take items within the car like your paperwork in the glove box or car radio.

Know Where You’re Going 

Take time to research the area where you plan to say. Is it a high-crime area? There are places in Mexico that are notorious for high crime statistics. It’s ideal to avoid these places if you can. Additionally, carefully consider the route you plan to take to reach your destination. Has this route been associated with bandits of vehicle thefts? When driving in any foreign country, it’s vital to choose the safest route for travel.

Secure Your Vehicle in Mexico: Don’t Stop on Lonely Stretches of Highway 

Unless you have a serious car problem, it’s best to avoid stopping on the side of the road, especially if you’re in a remote location. It can be tempting, for example, to pull off the road to walk down to the coast to take photos. Unless it’s a designated area and other drivers are present, it’s better to avoid the temptation to leave your car on the side of the road.

Security Devices 

While car alarms won’t always deter a criminal, they can help reduce the risk of theft. Always arm your car alarm if you have one, even if you’re just popping into a store for a few moments. If you have other devices like steering wheel locks, use them. It only takes a couple of extra minutes to take these security precautions, but it could save you from the nightmare of a stolen car.

Don’t Leave Valuables Visible in Your Car 

Never leave your passport, purse, wallet, or other valuable items on the seat or dashboard of your car or truck. These items can be a temptation–even to individuals who aren’t classed as professional car thieves. It takes mere seconds to smash in a car window and steal the items–your new smartphone–sitting on the seat. Either keep these items with you or make sure they are out of sight. Also, keep in mind that Personal Property is Covered under your Homeowners Insurance or Renters Insurance policy…Never under an Automobile Insurance Policy

Keep these tips in mind so you can better protect yourself and your vehicle when driving in Mexico. A stolen car can wreck your vacation. Remember, that even after exercising every known precaution, a theft can happen. That’s why it’s essential to have a Mexican auto insurance policy that will reimburse you for the loss.
