BajaBound. com Launches Innovative SentriSaver Mexican Insurance Policy for Frequent Border Crossers

BajaBound. com Launches Innovative SentriSaver Mexican Insurance Policy for Frequent Border Crossers

Leading Mexican auto insurance broker partners with HDI Seguros to offer discounted rates for SENTRI card holders.

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 1, 2010

BajaBound. com launched a new insurance policy last week that offers SENTRI card holders special discounted rates on their auto insurance for Mexico (http://www. bajabound. com). The "SentriSaver (http://www. sentrisaver. com)" policy will give SENTRI card holders a discount of up to 20% off the standard annual rates.

“We saw an opportunity to reach an exclusive segment of the market that drives to and from Mexico on a regular basis and presented it to HDI Seguros. They loved the SentriSaver concept and were able to develop a special rate for these travelers," said Baja Bound President Hank Morton. HDI was recently rated first in customer service by the national insurance commission in Mexico (CONDUSEF).

The SentriSaver insurance policy will add to the existing range of products offered through BajaBound. com which include daily, short term, six month and annual auto insurance policies for U. S. or Canadian plated vehicles while being driven in Mexico. All of the insurance policies are available to buy and print out online. And even though insurance for driving in Mexico is easy to obtain from a website such as BajaBound. com, not all drivers actually buy it.

“Many drivers still don’t realize that their U. S. auto insurance does not provide any liability coverage in the event of an accident in Mexico. And while a handful of U. S. insurers actually provide theft and physical damage coverage for their clients vehicles, even then it is limited to a short distance across the border. SentriSaver not only provides full coverage for driving in Mexico, but offers SENTRI card holders a great discount, too," added Morton.

The SENTRI (Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection) program is run by U. S. Customs and Border Protection and allows pre-screened card holders access to special lanes to cross more quickly from Mexico into the United States.
