Free auto insurance being offered during state plate exchange

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Taxpayers who renew their license plates and circulation cards between January and March of this year will be provided with free auto insurance. The Government of Quintana Roo made the announcement Monday.

Eugenio Segura Vázquez, head of the Ministry of Finance and Planning (Sefiplan), said it is the first time in the state that this type of offer has been made. While he explained that the auto insurance is extended to private vehicles only, he did not provide details regarding policy coverage.

“Public transport service vehicles and taxi service platforms are excluded from this benefit,” he said adding that the auto insurance is valid “from the moment the taxpayer concludes his 2023 filing process for the vehicle exclusively for private use.”

He said that the insurance covers civil liability incurred by the driver of the unit or any other person who, with the consent of the owner, uses the insured vehicle and who, as a result of said use, causes material damage to third party property, causes bodily injury or death to third parties, other than the occupants or passengers of the insured vehicle.

While some third-part details were included, other factors such as medical payments, collision coverage, comprehensive and deductibles were not provided.

In the state of Quintana Roo, license plates exchanges are done every three years. “Now they will benefit from free insurance for their vehicle,” Vázquez commented.
