Travel insurance for Mexico

Mexico is a truly wonderful destination, but when you take the long flights and unfamiliar culture into account, a great travel insurance policy is really important. With travel insurance from Holiday Extras you can book quickly and easily, and you’ll then be able to enjoy a relaxing trip, with the knowledge that you’re protected in the event of any problems.

Travel better with pre-holiday preparation

  • An earthquake near Puebla has left the area devastated - Mexico City airport is open however it is strongly advised you check with your travel company before you fly. The British Embassy is currently closed; if you are in need of emergency assistance, call +44 (0)20 7008 1500 or alternatively you can email
  • If you're planning on travelling to Mexico, and your passport is valid for at least 6 months from the date you intend to enter the country, you have the option to complete your immigration card in advance online rather than on arrival.

Why choose Holiday Extras for your Mexico travel insurance?

Booking with Holiday Extras gives you the choice of three excellent insurance levels, so you can pick the worldwide policy that suits your itinerary:

  • Basic contributes £500 cancellation costs per person, £1 million in medical cover, and £1,500 for baggage protection.
  • Standard doubles cancellation cover per person to £1,000 and offers medical cover at £2 million, and £1,500 for baggage.
  • Premium cover, offers £5,000 cancellation cover for everyone in your party, £1,500 of baggage cover, and £5 million for medical expenditure.

The option of single trip or annual trip policies provides even more versatility, and all Holiday Extras' insurances offer free cover for children aged up to 18 accompanied by an adult policyholder. 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.

With generous excesses available on most covers, we provide a robust and flexible level of protection, and our ten per cent discount for returning customers can make the policy even better value.

Practical advice for Mexico

Vaccinations – Get all of your immunisations, from Typhoid to Hepatitis A and B, at least six weeks in advance to ensure that the effects kick in. 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.

Travel – During long journeys to or across Mexico, be sure to stand up and walk at regular intervals to avoid Deep Vein Thrombosis.

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 to do in Mexico

  • Delve into Palenque, an enduring example of the imposing beauty of Mayan architecture.
  • Race through the Copper Canyon – a network of gorges larger than the Grand Canyon – on the “Chihuahua al Pacifico” Railway.
  • Visit the vast pyramids of Teotihuacan and its iconic Pyramid of the Sun, which dates back to 100 AD.
  • The beautiful, tourist-friendly town of Akumal offers coral reefs and diverse wildlife – its name means ‘Place of the Turtle’.
  • As unique as it is colourful, you could spend a lifetime in Mexico City without doing everything. Try out grilled tacos in the thriving city centre.
