Liability insurance purchased on third party travel websites and insurance that accompanies US credit or debit cards are not acceptable forms of coverage. Employees of the local rental car company are not qualified to evaluate the adequacy of the customer's personal auto insurance coverage. The customer should contact their insurance company in advance of the pickup date for the rental with any questions regarding their specific coverage. Further,; if the customer provides acceptable proof of current liability coverage in Mexico and declines to purchase the TPL offered by the local rental car company, an additional authorization in the amount of $45,000 MXP (approximately $2,500 USD) will be held on his or her credit card.
