The option of single trip or annual trip policies provides even more versatility depending on the frequency of your travel. You'll be assured of a straightforward booking process which takes an average of just ten minutes, so you can focus on the details of your trip.

Do I need medical insurance for my Mexico trip?

Much like the US, healthcare in Mexico is not free, and in the event of you needing medical treatment, you could be left with a sizable bill. Booking travel insurance with Holiday Extras, you can receive cover for up to £10 million for medical emergencies.

What if I have a pre-existing medical condition?

When you book, remember to let us know of any pre-existing medical conditions you may have, so we can tailor a suitable policy with these conditions in mind. Holiday Extras covers the majority of pre-existing medical conditions and all medical conditions will be considered.

Practical advice for Mexico

Vaccinations - It's advisable to get your vaccinations (from Typhoid to Hepatitis A and B) at least six weeks in advance to ensure that the effects are present when you travel. If you need to bring medication, take it in clearly labelled containers for easy use on the move. Remember that we don't cover lost medication on our policies, or medical expenses if you lack the required immunisations.

Visa - British citizens do not need a visa to enter Mexico at present. You will need to keep a Mexico Tourist Card (which will be stamped at immigration control) with you at all times.

What are some of Mexico's traditions?

Independence day - The 16th of September is the Mexican independence day, and marks the occasion on which Mexico separated from Spain in 1810. Celebrations typically begin on the evening of the 15th when the president gives "El grito de dolores" or the cry of dolores, a speech commemorating the victory of the 16th. Much like in the US, schools and workplaces are closed during Mexican independence day, with parades, food and festivities enjoyed throughout the day.

Feast of our Lady of Guadelupe - this is a major Mexican holiday celebrated on the 12th of December, in which Mexicans honour the legacy of their patron saint the Virgin Mary. Special masses, dances and processions are held on this day.

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead) - Celebrated on the 2nd of November, the Day of the Dead is a time during which the people of Mexico remember and honour those who have died. Brought to Mexico by the Spanish Conquistadors, the Day of the dead is actually a combination of ancient Aztec tradition with Catholicism. Typically the day is celebrated with food, drink and festivities, and families gather to clean and decorate the graves of their dead loved ones.
