If you spend less than 120 days a year in Baja, you can save $100 on average on your annual Mexican auto insurance policy by becoming a Discover Baja member. This is because our members have access to our SUPER SAVER Mexican auto insurance policies that are not available to the regular public. Sign up online to become a Discover Baja member or get a free quote on Mexican auto insurance!  Or give us a call at 800-727-2252 or come into our office in San Diego.

We wish you all a happy holiday season and a 2017 full of travel and adventure!

See you in Baja!
