"Oh wow, that is phenomenal news! Thank you for coordinating the responses with them and for helping us out, it is greatly appreciated!
With the recent extension until October 21, we have at least another month of staying stateside, so hopefully this is the last one. It'd be nice to be able to go before and during the holidays."

"Some good news The company has cancelled your policy effective March 20, 2020. A refund of $199.38 to the credit or debit card used to purchase your policy has been processed. It may take up to 72 hours for the credit to appear on your statement.
Please refer to the last page of the attachment, which contains the endorsement cancelling your policy. Since your policy is no longer valid, you may wish to destroy it or at least remove it from your vehicle.
This is a first in 16 years I have been doing this, and shows that common sense can still prevail.
Please let me know if you have questions I can assist with.
I hope the border opens very soon . . . we are itching to visit Mexico Lindo, too."

"This email is long overdue, but I'm hoping you can provide some input for the best way to proceed.
Just before New Years, we finally bit the bullet and got a year long policy. Due to the pandemic, the last time we were down there was in March. After 6 months of not traveling down there, and likely won't for another month or two, is there any way to shift the 3ish months left remaining on the contract to a date where we will be traveling? If not, only getting the 2 or 3 trips we had at the beginning of the year out of the policy would be quite a bummer.
Thanks for the help,"

"...When I was reviewing policies that people issued online over the weekend I noticed that you issued two policies within 20 minutes of each other. With a closer review, I see that policy number ******01 was only valid for 5 minutes before it expired at midnight, and policy ******02 was issued for April 2nd to provide you the coverage you needed.
I contacted the insurance company to explain the situation and requested a refund for the full amount of the first policy, $33.99. They have approved the request and you should see that refund back into your account within 3 business days"

This gives me a comfort level that I can deal with. I just finished purchasing my policy, so now I can put that out of my mind and move on to getting ready for the race. Have a great time in Baja and thanks again for all the help.

"This is a heartfelt (if overdue) "THANK YOU!" for your help in issuing a refund for my recently cancelled Mexico insurance policy. I did in fact receive the entire amount charged several days ago in my account.
While my trip to Mexico has been postponed, once I do set a firm date, I will definitely use your services once again. Your rapid reply to, and resolution of, my questions regarding issuance of a refund for a cancelled policy have earned your firm a fan for life!"

"At this point I'd like to toss off a thanks to Alan Kohl who helped us secure Mexican insurance. First, he noticed that the Motorcycle registration issued by PEI Motor Bureau was wonky. Actually, it had three errors – how can that even happen? Had he not caught this, our ride through the borders would have been next to impossible. Secondly, Alan has deep rooted experience in this neck of the woods. He has extensively traveled this area nearly 30 years ago when there wasn't any wifi, or even a telephone line, never mind pavement. It's hard to imagine what an adventure that would be. So, if you're reading this Alan, you've been a huge help! "

Good morning Alan. Thank you so much for your prompt reply and the information which was very clear. You have no idea how much I appreciate your help and promptness in answering questions. You have probably been the very best agent that I have ever worked with. If you have a boss or something and I could get his e mail I would like to let them know how valuable you are to their organization. Thank you again for everything you have done.
April 15, 2014
You have done a great job. If there is anyone I should mention your dedication to, I would be glad to do so.
January 18, 2014
Buen dia Alan, muchas gracias por todo. Es la segunda vez que resuelve mis problemas; le estoy profundamente agradecido.
Le deseo un feliz fin de semana y un excelente 2014.

Please give me any phone numbers I may need, in case of accident, theft, etc. I need to know who to contact. Also, if I have a breakdown on the road, is there a number to call for roadside asistance? Please help me by providing this information and any other numbers needed.. Thank you in advance.
December 31, 2013
Our phone number is 520-743-7906. However, you MUST report any claim to our insurance company, ABA Seguros, as soon as possible, and definitely before you leave Mexico.
Page 6 of the documents you printed upon purchase (also attached to this email) explain what to do in case of an accident or theft of your vehicle. It works very much like in the US and Canada . . . call and report the claim to a 24x7 Call Center, from Mexico, 01-800-368-1414. An adjuster will then be assigned. In most cases the adjuster is dispatched to the accident right away.
Page 6 also includes the toll free number to call if you need roadside assistance, from within Mexico, 01-800-310-7590.
Failure to report a claim to the insurance company before leaving Mexico can result in rejection of a claim because the company needs to have an opportunity to investigate, which it cannot do if their customer has left the country.
If you have a problem with the insurance company, please let us know so that we can help figure out what the problem is.
Best wishes, safe travels, and Happy New Year!
January 1, 2014
I very much appreciate your email and personal attention to my questions. I'm impressed and happy to have your support.
October 17, 2013
I received all the insurance documents and have printed them for our trip. Thank you for all your assistance. It was good to talk to someone who loves Mexico and the Mexican people as much as we do.
December 10, 2012
Thank you for noticing this. In fact this is what appeared on the screen before I printed the policy. I thought that upon printing the dates were correct.
I will check. I really wanted the policy to be effective as of December 6, 2012. Please correct the dates and I will re-print.
Hello, Mr. Vukov.
I noticed that on December 6, 2012 you purchased a Mexican auto Insurance policy from our website,
However, I noticed that the policy does not go into effect for six months, on June 6, 2013 and it expires on December 6, 2013. Since most people purchase their policies a short time before their policy is effective, and not six months in advance, I wanted to check with you ask if you wanted your policy to start in June 2013, or ask if there is an error in the policy dates.
A copy of your policy is attached for your review. I look forward to your reply.
November 25, 2012
Thank you for getting back to me in such a prompt manner and on Sunday, I am quite impressed.
I was able to print it right after my credit card processed, however, somehow I did not receive the automated email it said I will. But I did receive yours and now I can store this properly in case anything is needed or for future purchases.
Thank you and have a good rest of the weekend,
October 5, 2012
Thank you so much for the insurance policy.
Totally appreciate your super attentive service!
Best wishes to you also.

March 13, 2012
Alan, if everyone I've done business with over the years had been as helpful as you things would certainly be different now for me. Thanks so much for your expert advise!
I've found that at times neither the cheapest buy nor the most expensive buy is the best buy. Do you have any suggestions as to which full-coverage policy on your website is the best for me and how do I make certain that you are credited for this sale?
April 23, 2011
I tried to take my vehicle to Mexico and was denied a temporary vehicle permit to drive it there. I cannot use the insurance and I am requesting for a full refund.
Please cancel policy #0000000 GNP Deluxe of Aaron H. for the 2006 Highlander. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
My Kindest Regards,

Thank you so much for your help Alan. I see I have been credited the money back to my account. I will for certain use your company again after I get my issues fixed with Banjercito of Mexico. Thanks again.

Good morning, Martha.
I am told the check will be sent out this coming Tuesday via Courier. Would you mind letting me know when you receive it?
October 21, 2010
We have received the check. It came only one day after promised and I apologize for not informing you. I truly appreciate your intervening on my behalf. Thank you very much.
January 23, 2010
Thank You soooo much for your help. We really appreciate it!
I have asked the company to void the policy, which will result in a full refund to your credit or debit card account. Normally the company retains a $7.50 fee, but I asked them to waive it under the circumstances.
I will advise you when I receive notice that the policy has been voided. Since I will be out of the office next Monday and Tuesday I will not be able to confirm until next Wednesday. By then you will probably see the credit on your credit card account.
I hope all turns out well for you and your family.
January 14, 2010
Thank you so much for your kind and informative letter. I am out the door to La Huerta to give a report in person and receive a paper giving permission to drive my car until the new plates arrive. The delegacion here was very helpful this morning, even giving me an official letter to drive my car to La Huerta, the Municipal seat.
Thanks for your help.

Policy # 3620392 Case# 8408-2709-2
thank you for your reply, I need to leave Mexico and go back to the states this week. I want to transport my car to San Diego for the repairs and need to know the following; Can I do the repairs in San Diego? How much of the towing will be covered?
The adjustor did not have the cars engine damage assessed, it is not running at all, but he said he did not have to have the engine damage assessed at all, so the car was not looked at my a mechanic from the insurance company. The adjustor only noted that the engine is dead.
I have the car at the Chrysler dealership in San Jose for diagnosis of the mechanical and should know today the assessment.
What if the car is totaled, which I think it will be, does the insurance company keep the car, or do I?
How long will it take for the insurance to settle? This was a hit and run with no injuries. How do I get a hold of the insurance office? They don't answer the phone I was given (888-823-4745). I spoke with Peter last week and asked him these questions but he has not returned my call, nor has anyone answered the phone for the past several days. Can you assist me?
I just tried calling your Mexico cell phone but it did not ring after 1 minute. I included the “1” after the 52 country code. I then called your SKYPE number and left a message.
If you would like to call me, please do so this morning as I will be leaving in a couple of hours for appointments.
Your vehicle can be repaired in the U.S. at up to a US labor rate of $50 per hour
The policy includes $300 for towing, but that amount is to tow the vehicle to the nearest repair facility, not 1,000 miles north to the border
It was wise to determine if the engine suffered damage as a consequence of the accident
If the car is totaled the company should give you a choice of keeping the car, in which case they will reduce the amount they pay you by the value of the salvage you would receive if you keep it.
If the car is a total the settlement should be pretty fast . . . a week or two . . . but of course we are coming up on the Christmas holidays and you probably know that things slow down during that period.
Please call Martha Gonzales at the Claim office in Mexicali. Martha is the head of Claims for Tourist Auto. Her number in Mexico is 01-686-564-7350. Alternatively, you can also try 01-686-654-7398. I believe her offices hours begin at either 8:00 or 8:30 AM Baja California time, which is the same time as San Diego.
Please let me know if you have additional questions and if you would still like to talk by phone. I will be pleased to call you.
Best of luck and please let me know if you need additional assistance.
December 2, 2008
I hope you had a good Thanksgiving.
I received this correspondence from Jesus in San Diego. I believe that it is because of your assistance that we are making progress. I requested that the check for $9,652.00 be mailed to my sister-in-law's house in San Rafael.
I can't believe that we have been struggling with this for a year and a half and you were able to get things moving so quickly. Thank you very much. I will let you know when we actually receive the money.
October 25, 2008
A deposit of $11,000 was wired to my checking account on the 14th. Given the insured value was $12,000 less $1.000 for the deductable, I am happy about the settlement. Thanks for all your help.
We will be heading back to Mexico the 1st. of the year - - will be in touch.
