Happy SmartGringo Customers

Exactly What I Needed

I have a new car and I wanted to make sure it was protected. I loved how the site lets you customize options to suit what is best for my personal needs.


I started using Smart Gringo for Mexican insurance last year and really was impressed with how effortless it was compared with other companies I've used. Smart Gringo is also affordable. I have peace of mind when crossing the border that I'm covered if anything were to happen.

My Go-To Site

My experience purchasing temporary Mexican auto insurance through SmartGringo was great. I liked that I can customize the policy to my needs and there were several options to choose from. It has become my go-to site to purchase car insurance when I am going across the border to play in Rosarito!
