Mexican Insurance Policies for Buggies and ATVs

The following information is to help you insure your buggy/ATV as a primary vehicle. (It may also be necessary to insure it as a towed vehicle. If your buggy/ATV will be towed, please read our article: Mexican Insurance Policies for Buggies and ATVs - As Towed Vehicles.) Baja Bound offers coverage for the two types of policies you may need for your buggy or ATV. Sometimes two policies may be necessary:

  • While being driven as a primary vehicle - Buggies/ATVs are eligible for liability only coverage if you will be driving them on municipal roads. This requires its own primary vehicle policy. If the buggy/ATV is street legal, it may qualify for full coverage. Please contact us.
  • While being towed or carried by a primary vehicle - Buggies/ATVs must be listed as towed items on your primary vehicle's policy if it does not have its own separate primary vehicle policy. Towed buggies/ATVs may be insured for full coverage which includes physical damage and theft or liability only coverage which does not offer physical damage or theft. This coverage ceases once the vehicle(s) are off the trailer or out of the truck bed which is why a separate primary vehicle policy may be necessary. Read more about towed buggies/ATVs...

Important: Coverage is only valid on conventional roads, not in off-road situations. Some dirt roads are considered to be conventional roads if they are normally transited. There is no coverage on roads that are impassable.

FAQs about Mexican Insurance for Buggies and ATVs

  • My buggy/ATV is already insured on my primary vehicle's policy, why would I need a separate policy to have coverage while driving it?
    Mexican insurance requires a separate policy to cover a vehicle while being driven. The policy that lists the buggy/ATV as a towed vehicle, will only cover it while it is secured on the trailer or in the truck bed.
  • My buggy/ATV is not street legal. May I purchase a separate primary vehicle policy anyway?
    Yes. The only coverage available for a buggy/ATV that is not street legal is liability only, which means no physical damage or theft coverage is offered. If you are towing your buggy/ATV, it may qualify for full coverage only while in tow. Read more about towed buggies/ATVs...
  • May I buy a full coverage policy (includes physical damage and theft coverage) on my buggy/ATV while being driven as a primary vehicle?
    Maybe. Sometimes it is possible to get special approval from our insurance companies for full coverage. Please contact us.
  • Is it possible to obtain medical payments for the driver and passengers of a buggy/ATV?
    Sometimes it is possible to be covered for medical payments while driving a buggy (but not an ATV). Our insurance companies may grant special approval if the buggy is street legal, has a roof and windows and/or other safety features. Please contact us with your buggy's information. Otherwise, we recommend checking your medical or health insurance from the U.S. or Canada to see if you will be covered. If not, you may be able to purchase temporary international medical coverage.
  • Is it possible to obtain legal assistance?
    Maybe by special approval. Please contact us with your buggy/ATV's information to submit to our insurance companies.
  • Why is coverage only available for conventional roads, not off-road?
    Our insurance companies do not offer coverage off-road. None of our policies will cover off-road for any type of vehicle.
  • What is considered a conventional road?
    Roads that are normally transited, have signage, and are on a map are generally considered conventional roads. Dirt roads may be municipal as well if they have these characteristics. There is no coverage on roads that are impassable.
  • I have a high valued buggy. Am I able to insure it for its full value?
    Maybe. Please contact us with the buggy's information. Photos may be requested by our insurance companies. In case of a claim, the insurance companies may request invoices/receipts to help value the vehicle. An appraisal is ideal.
